ACE Dashboard - export and import

The export/import functionality also imports your user and password for the remote connections. There should be a way of blanking out the user/pass and prompting for a user/pass on import.
Current workaround is manually editing the exported yaml.

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request, which we agree would improve the dashboard. Currently, the set of connection information about deployment locations, and the userid/password identities which are supplied to a user's dashboard instance are designed to be specific to an individual.... As noted we added an export/import option to make it as easy as possible for a user to help another user set up a similar environment of connections. Currently this is "all or nothing" in its approach and does not allow a user to redact particular connections or the userid/password info from the export file, nor prompt to "overwrite" particular values on reimport. We think there would be value in both these capabilities as part of the built-in experience rather than the current workaround expressed in the idea suggestion. Status of the idea is updated to "Future Consideration".
