We are in 7.2.2 using the Pega CRM suite. We are planning to implement a custom cipher to encrypt BLOB data in our application. Our application has around 3 different work tables which are are considering in scope.
My questions are:
will this custom cipher work when we upgrade to Pega Infinity? Or do we have to repeat the process? Is there any downside which we need to be aware of like performance, reading BLOB streams with the UDFs defined etc. I read somewhere that encrypted BLOB is not supported by UDF.
How do we take care of the existing data which is already in production? If we run an utility to update the BLOB ( encrypt) , will just an obj-open and save with commit work? Please provide some insights on this based on experience..
