Credential Manager

Description

At the moment, each connection stores individually the credential informations (Username, Password, Domain).
People may use the same credentials to access many different servers which means that if a user changes his/her password (or if the password expires), the user currently has to update his/her password as many time as there are connections using it !

It would be great to create a credential manager in which you can create accounts and link the connections to the accounts. So if the password of account X expires for example, the user only has to change the password in account X and it will be updated in all the connections linked to account X.

Another advantage would be to allow many users working on a same project (and therefore connection to the same machines) to easily share the connections (confCons.xml) : if the connections reffers for example to 3 accounts (let's say account01, account02 and account03), each user only has to go in the credential manager, create account01, account02 and account03 with their own users & password and that's it.
