Wireshark quite happily spots TLS 1.2, there should be no configuration required, unless the traffic is on a non-default port. In that case either use "Decode As ..." or set the preferences for the protocol carried in the TLS tunnel, e.g. for HTTP the "SSL/TLS Ports" preference.

I know about HTTP settings "HTTP the "SSL/TLS Ports" preference." but we are working communicating on TCP layer. for TCP i don't see any option in wireshark.

Is there a dissector for the protocol you are using in the TLS tunnel? If so, then configure that dissector, else you'll have to try "Decode As .."
