Issues in implementing Cite Specific Cipher



Issues while implementing Cite Specific Cipher which is working for few classes, but for few other classes Encrypt Blob Option is not Editable

Error Messages

No error messages but Blob not getting encrypted for these classes.

Steps to Reproduce

Not applicable

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules, if a class has instances then 'Encrypt BLOB' option becomes read-only and user cannot modify it.


User has to change the Database table mapping of the class to an empty table temporarily, which allowed 'Encrypt BLOB' option as editable and remap the class to its original table that has instances.
