Can we get an option for the SSH connections to use saved 'credentials' passwords.
Currently, each SSH connection has to have the name and password saved into it.
Id like to use a credential name and password in multiple ssh connections. And then if the password changes, i only have to change it in the credential section and not edit each SSH connection.

Hi,
I discovered something interesting in version 8..4.1 You can pass the server address, userid and password as variables instead of hard coding them in the CONNECTIONS screen.

What you could possible do is put the password into a file. When the job starts, there is a task to read the file. Store the output into a variable. This variable is configured in the field in the CONNECTIONS screen.
