Password Vault support for Control Center database user

Due to security requirements and best practices, passwords should be changed periodically and wherever possible, should not be stored on local systems in text/XML files, etc.

Control Center should have an option to utilize external Password Vault solution, like CyberArk, to retrieve the password from a vault in order to connect to Control Center database.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

This will allow to migrate database user to Password Vault and will enable more frequent and automated password change for Control Center database user.
