Does Jira support an encrypted MSSQL database?

intention is to make sure JIRA REST API/ Web UI are the only ways to access data and direct access to JIRA DB cannot expose the same data

JIRA supports MSSQL using the jTDS drivers, as described here:

If the driver supports it and the database behaves normally from the application's perspective, and you haven't installed third-party plugins that bypass our normal means of getting a database connection, then I don't know of any reason why it wouldn't work.

That said, encrypted databases are not part of our testing matrix, so if it turns out that it causes problems, whether functionally or by impairing performance, then we might not be able to offer you support for it.
