sha256

SHA256 encryption

Overview

The zoho.encryption.sha256 task returns the hash corresponding to the given text, generated using the SHA256 algorithm.

Syntax

<response> = zoho.encryption.sha256(<data>, <output_type>);

where:

ParamsData typeDescription

<response>

TEXT

The hash generated using the SHA256 algorithm.

<data>

TEXT

The source text whose corresponding hash needs to be computed.

<output_type>

(Optional)

TEXT

The type in which the generated hash needs to be represented. By default, the output type is hex.

Allowed values:

  • hex
  • binary

Note: When the <output_type> is specified as binary, the input <data> cannot be more than 1 MB.

Example 1: Generate hash in hexadecimal format using sha256 algorithm

The following script returns the hash in hexadecimal format generated using the SHA256 algorithm for the text - :

response = zoho.encryption.sha256("hello");

where:

response
The TEXT that represents the hash value returned by this task. Here, the hash returned is 2cf24dba5fb0a30e26e83b2ac5b9e29e1b161e5c1fa7425e73043362938b9824
"hello"
The TEXT that represents the source text whose corresponding hash needs to be computed.

Example 2: Generate hash in binary format using sha256 algorithm

The following script returns the hash in binary format generated using the SHA256 algorithm for the text - hello:

response = zoho.encryption.sha256("hello", "binary");

where:

response
The TEXT that represents the hash value in binary format returned by this task. Here, the hash returned is 0010110011110010010011011011101001011111101100001010001100001110001001101110100000111011001010101100010110111001111000101001111000011011000101100001111001011100000111111010011101000010010111100111001100000100001100110110001010010011100010111001100000100100
"binary"
The TEXT that represents the format in which the hash will be returned.
