About this task

By default, object data is hashed using the SHA‐1 algorithm. Object data can also be hashed using the SHA‐256 algorithm.
Note: If you change this setting, it will take about one minute for the new setting to be applied. The configured value is cached for performance and scaling.


  1. Select Configuration > Grid Options.
  2. From the Grid Options menu, select Configuration.
