Centralized password file for Control Center connection IDs

The connection ID and password has to be configured for each Connect:Direct node added to Control Center. The password in use has to be changed on a regular basis requiring that all nodes using that particular ID and password be touched on a monthly basis using the batch process.

Having a central place in Control Center where the IDs and passwords needed could be configured once and then referenced when needed would decrease the amount of effort it takes to make these changes. Current environment has 6 IDs and passwords involved.
