Will there be WFA support for "volume encryption conversion" command?

The upcoming release of ONTAP 9.3 will support converting existing volumes to encrypted volumes (NVE) via the "volume encryption conversion" ONTAP CLI command. 

 

Will a future release of WFA (or any WFA packs available from the 'Storage Automation Store') allow conversion of existing volumes to encrypted volumes?  Or would the conversion need to be done via the "Invoke-NcSsh" Powershell cmdlet?

 

My customer wants to convert existing volumes to encrypted volumes after they upgrade to ONTAP 9.3 (and not have to move the volume in order to encypt it), and I'm working to determine the best method of doing so.  I'd rather use a certified WFA command block than create my own.

I see that CDOT 1.4.2 pack is avaiilable.  I have installed this pack, but I don't see where the "volume encryption conversion" is implemented. I must have missed it somewhere. Which workflow or command is "volume encryption conversion" implemented in?  Or is it only implemented in the PowerShell Toolkit (PSTK), and a custom WFA command block must be created?
