  • Hi Amol,

     

    There is nothing like that out of the box. You can create your own encryption method by using a pre-callout, but there is no way to decrypt the data in something like a pre-read callout. If it is just about one field, then you can think about handling this requirement in a custom webpage and load this page in a small iframe in the entity form.

     

    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Amol,

    As Ronald mentioned, you cannot encrypt the data on the application level, but you can do it on the database level using SQL server 2008 enterprise version.

    Basically - SQL 2008 enterprise version supports encryption of the data in the tables automatically, no change in the application is required. Downside, of course, is the price.
