    Aternity comes with a default predefined encryption key out of the box. Administrative users assigned the View Personally Identifiable Information role can change the out of the box key and enter the desired encryption key. Note that once you change the key, you cannot go back to the default one. But you can change the current key again to something else and save the changes.

    Tip

    The encryption key should include only hexadecimal characters (0-9,a-f/A-F) and can be up to 32 characters long.
