Does Confluence allow SSL/Encryption to MSSQL

I've found a bit of information that JIRA can connect to Postgres over SSL and need to know if Confluence can connect to Microsoft SQL Server over SSL. If so can you point me to some docs?

I also need to know if Confluence would support an encrypted database? I don't know much about the technical side but I would assume that the encryption/decryption would be a function of the database and Conflence wouldn't really need to know anything about it. It would just use the jdbc connector to query the database... I'd like a confirmation that that assumption is true. Thanks!

Christopher,

I think you haev two seperate questions here. The first is easy. Confluence can absolutely connect to a database running over ssl. The following external document describes the flags that you need to add to your database connection string to allow this to happen.

The databse encryption is a seperate issue. We have the following outstanding issue to support encyption.

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-20449

Please take a moment to visit this issue and vote on it. This will ensure our developers roll it into a future release of Confluence.

I would not say it is Confluence related - standard JDBC configuration would do - see Microsoft.
