We are trying to implement the TextEncrypted property type in Pega 7.1.6.
According to this article from Pega help in step 1 we have to create a site-specific cypher. (Step (1) under the section titled Implementing the TextEncrypted type.) That step has a reference to this article, Working with the PegaRULES Database How to encrypt the Storage Streams of selected classes. In step 1.2 it states, “Determine the choices available for your site-specific cipher, by running the JCE Capabilities tool (part of the runPega script) from the command prompt.” Later on, it also states to run the compileAndLoad script.
The client's infrastructure team is requesting more information around what these scripts do and what their effect will be. Without this documentation it will not be possible to run these scripts in higher environments.
