Allow users to access the IBM Cloud Key Protect service to retrieve keys/secrets when connecting to data sources

For all of the connection dialogs where you can provide a key and secret as an authentication method, allow the keys to be pulled from the Key Protect service. We should be encouraging the use of Key Protect as a best practice across our IBM Cloud offerings.
