Encryption of sensitive data using TextEncrypted property type.
I have a requirement to encrypt sensitive data. I tried with property type -TextEncrypted, but when I run the case, data is not getting stored on clipboard for the property types-TextEncrypted and Text. Also flow is ending abruptly.
Can someone explain the root cause and any other method to encrypt the data?

As per the documentation of the encryption over here why can't you use the Password type for encrypting the property instead of TextEncrypted.
The Password type requires no advanced configuration or Java skills to set up. Several standard properties implement this type; for example, the property Data-Admin-Operator-ID.pyPwdCurrent. Pega Platform applies the one-way MD5 algorithm to this value, which is never sent to any external system.
The TextEncrypted type requires one-time Java coding of encryption Java functions of your choice to implement a Public API Interface
Let me know if this satisfies your requirement to encrypt the property value.
