When trying to enter Workflow Credentials from the Administration section of the Gallery, the credentials do not save and the message 'Validating' shows perpetually. The credentials are not saved.
You may also see this issue when trying to update the password for an existing credential.
You will find the below errors in the logs:
ERROR,,ErrorHandler,HandleError,,,::1,xxx-xxx,,,GET,/gallery/api/apps/pubKey/,400,14,Exception caught by ErrorHandler and marshalled to client,"AlteryxService_Client.Net.AlteryxServiceException: Credential usage is disabled as a result of encryption configuration.

The Alteryx Service account has insufficient permissions to the server's machine key directory (%ProgramData%\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys) or specifically the Alteryx Machine Key which is used to encrypt/decrypt user credentials and Gallery data connections.
