Keeping password hidden via Global Resource Setting

Pega 7.3.1

I am configuring MQ Server rule and I can specify all the configuration attributes via global resource setting pattern (=PageName.PropertyName), which is fine. There are 2 fields which list userName and password. If i use the same mechanism as above, I will end up exposing the password to anyone who has access to this data page.

Is there any way of keeping password hidden (and specifically NOT using base64)?

REST connectors allow the use of Authentication Profile, so user/password can be retained as masked. MQ Server does not. I could in theory just create a data page which will open Auth Profile and decrypt the password, but then the password is still in clear text on the data page.

Any out of the box options to support above case?
