Allow for generic or service accounts that don't expire passwords for systems making calls

Either allow for generic or service accounts with non-expiring passwords or allow for other authentication means for apps that are making calls. Resetting every x days is intrusive.

How will this idea be used?

A user could integrate an app like Salesforce that makes REST API calls to PEM and issue a  service account that doesn't have an expiring password, so they don't need to reset/change it quarterly.

A user could integrate an app like Salesforce that supports token-based auth or key-based auth and use that rather than a password.

    We intend to address this requirement by supporting the use of tokens for the API Configurations.  This will allow the primary sponsor administrator to choose to support tokens rather than user name and password.  This will remove the need for the primary sponsor administrator to have to update the passwords on the various API Configurations when they update their login password.
