Support for OpenPages on Encrypted Tablespaces (Oracle Database)

At Westpac, Incidents (Events Module), Control Assurance (Audit Module) and Regulatory Interaction objects contain sensitive data. Hence the data in OpenPages application is classified as Highly Protected.
As per the Westpac security guidelines, Highly protected data has to be encrypted at rest and in transit.
To ensure compliance to security guidelines, we want to store all OpenPages data in Encrypted Tablespaces in Oracle Database.

We tried installing OpenPages on Encrypted Tablespaces and encountered problems. The details of the issues encountered are captured in "PMR 00720,999,616 - OpenPages Installation Failing".
As part of the PMR, IBM support has confirmed that OpenPages application is not supported on Encrypted Tablespaces and recommended for Westpac to raise an Enhancement Request.

To ensure successful implementation of OpenPages at Westpac this functionality is very critical and hence this enhancement request has been raised.
