Change a field or attachment's encryption type

You can change a field or attachment's encryption type by selecting a new encryption type in the existing encryption configuration record. A specific table and field combination can only have one active configuration at a time.

    Note: For attachments, only Standard AES128 and Standard AES256 are allowed.
