    Under the Business Partner window, there is a bank account tab that allows you to store credit card information for a business partner. I tested this and the credit card numbers are not saved in the database encrypted. Isn't this a huge no no? has anyone else run into this and have a solution?

    I tried going in under SuperUser and changing the column to an encrypted column, which does encrypt the column, but it no longer shows anything in the column. Ideally, I'd like for it to decrypt the value in the UI with the value obscured ( except for the last 4 numbers ). This does not seem to work. I am wondering if the system decrypts it when it gets sent to the credit card processors and such ( I have not gotten that far in my implementation yet ).

    I am using Compiere Pro 3.4
