Does encrypted properties work in Custom search index
We encrypted some properties in our application using ABAC Policy rule (action = PropertyEncrypt), then added the same properties to Customer search index (SysAdmin -> Custom Search Properties). While Pega accepted these changes, I am not sure whether this configuration would work or not. I tried to search using the 'decrypted' values of those fields, does not return anything in the search results.
Can anyone from Pega GCS team confirm that these would work fine? I checked Pega help, this is what it states.
"The property is encrypted in the database, clipboard, logs, and search indexes. If no PropertyRead policy obfuscates the property, then the decrypted property value is visible to the user in a UI control. In report definitions, the property can be displayed in report results and can also be referenced on the left side of filter conditions that use the Is equal and Is not equal operators. It cannot otherwise be referenced in report definitions (for example, to sort, rank, or group results in SQL functions, and so forth)."
