The "Manage Data Connections" tool is fantastic to save credentials alongside the connection without having to worry when you save the workflow that you've embedded a password.

Any of these values could be referenced in tool configurations, formulas, macro inputs by specifying the Alias and field.
Especially with the Salesforce connector it is a must to be able to update the salesforce credentials once for all workflows that use the same credentials. A simple free tool XL Connector has solved this perfectly (and the paid version also eliminates the 2000 row limit for query results!)
