Do I need to reveal details about the incident of a dismissed case for federal jobs?

About 8 years ago, I was convicted of attempted murder. Eventually, the case was expunged. Will I need to explain the arrest, conviction, and expungement for a national security job? As in, do I have to go in great detail about the incident or can I just say I was arrested and the case was dismissed?

    You may be mistaken about the outcome of your case if you were convicted, it would not be eligible for expungement. A federal job may have access to your complete criminal history, including expunged charges. It would be up to you, and how the questions are asked, to answer them honestly.
