access value of encrypted field in skuid?

I’m trying to create a ui formula field that compares the value of a ui text field with the value of an encryptedtext field.

But merge syntax on an encrypted field just returns ‘****’.

How can I access the actual value of an encrypted field?

You must have “View Encrypted Data” permission on your Profile / via Permission Sets in order to view encrypted fields within Skuid pages, same as in native Salesforce UI.
