Configuring stored object hashing

The Stored Object Hashing option specifies the hashing algorithm used to verify object integrity.

Before you begin

About this task

By default, object data is hashed using the SHA‐1 algorithm. The SHA-256 algorithm requires additional CPU resources and is generally not recommended for integrity verification.
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. In the Stored Object Options section, change Stored Object Hashing to SHA-1 (default) or SHA-256.
