Points to a password protected file that contains the key on the current server.
When encrypting or decrypting data in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, an encryption key is used. Microsoft Dynamics NAV uses a single key per tenant and every tenant will have a different key. Keys can be created or imported if one exists already, as may be the case if upgrading or migrating a system from one set of hardware to another. The IMPORTENCRYPTIONKEY function allows an administrator to specify a file (password protected) which contains a key and imports it to the current Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server.
In systems with multiple Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instances, you must run the IMPORTENCRYPTIONKEY function for each instance.
Use the System Restore permission set in Microsoft Dynamics NAV to allow importing the encryption key.
Value: String The file that contains the encryption key.
Value: String The password that protects the file.
true if the encryption key was imported; otherwise, false.
If you omit this optional return value and the encryption key cannot be imported successfully, then a run-time error occurs. If you include the return value, then you must handle any errors.
If the import key file cannot be imported, the following error will be displayed: Import Failed. The provided encryption key file contains invalid data and could not be imported.
This example requires that you create a text constant ServerFileName.
