When you configure the database settings in the Configuration Wizard, you can choose to encrypt the network traffic between the Orion server and the SQL Server using the SSL certificate on the SQL Server.

This option does not apply to legacy desktop applications, such as Orion Report Writer. To encrypt database connections to and from those applications, the SQL Server must require encryption.

This option in the Configuration Wizard requires a provisioned SSL certificate on the SQL Server. You do not need to force the SQL Server to require encryption.

The SSL certificate is trusted automatically.
