Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

If the Customer Data Key (CDK) that you are using in the platform cipher has been compromised, you can immediately rotate the internal encryption key. You can rotate the key regardless of the key rotation period that you configure in the keystore data instance.

To force data key rotation, you must have the pxCanManageDataEncryption privilege, which is included in the PegaRULES:SecurityAdministrator role.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Configure System Settings Data Encryption .

  2. In the Application data encryption section, perform the following steps:

    1. Click Platform cipher.

    2. Click Force data key rotation to immediately rotate the internal encryption key.
