It's Ken who gave me the pointer as
Additionally if you use the feature store the group / user / password....
This feature is good...
However be careful while using it as database gets encrypted and there is no way I could find to restore it. I was saved as I was exploring the function on a temporary table
So as mentioned by Ken pls. take the backup and explore this function
Thanks anfor your quick help...
