Encrypting the Connection to SQL Server

After going through this link https://docs.uipath.com/orchestrator/docs/encrypting-the-sql-server
it says to configure an SSL encrypted connection

In order to ensure the security of data which is in transit between the UiPath Orchestrator web application and the SQL Server database, you can configure an SSL encrypted connection between the two

And this site https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/database-engine/configure-windows/enable-encrypted-connections-to-the-database-engine?view=sql-server-2017
says SSL has been discontinued


Starting with SQL Server 2016 (13.x), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) has been discontinued. Use Transport Layer Security (TLS) instead.

I know communication between robot and orchestrator happens via TLS1.2

Does communication between SQL and orchestrator happens via same protocol?

Because I don’t remember if we add certificate at the SQL server? I only remember we do at the orchestrator server.

And if we follow

For SQL Server to load a TLS certificate, the certificate must meet the following conditions:

as mentioned: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/database-engine/configure-windows/enable-encrypted-connections-to-the-database-engine?view=sql-server-2017#to-provision-install-a-certificate-across-multiple-servers

Do we have to make any changes required from orchestrator server side?

I have started this new topic as deviates from the original topic Encrpyt item in Queue
