I have a use case where few fields on objects have to be encrypted, but there should be a provision to use these fields in filter criteria while creating records.
But by seeing restrictions on these reference docs https://help.salesforce.com/apex/HTViewHelpDoc?id=fields_about_encrypted_fields.htm
there is no way to use encrypted fields in filter criteria on reports .But seems to be in new release there is some new feature 'Platform Encryption' which can help to Encrypt Sensitive Data while Preserving Platform Functionality . But i was wondering will this provide the feature to use the encrypted fields to be used in report filtering too.
I have went through many docs for getting this, but haven't found much.To test this platform encryption currently it is not available in my client environment, and it was mentioned we need some extra licence for this.
Before proceeding i was just looking does this allow encrypted fields in filters too...
