How does one change a text field to an encrypted field after the code has gone live?

Question asked by Amy Cox on Nov 24, 2015

Right now the field is being used by a portal, which encrypts the value when it puts it in.  The problem is, if I add the field to the edit view and change the value there it saves the value none encrypted.  How do I change the field so SugarCRM 6.5 recognizes it as an encrypted field.

 

Note: The field we are talking about is a custom field, which was built in studio, so it is defined in the database table fields_meta_data.
