Not trivial, but doable. Add the first, then save the config file and exit HPCC. The config file is simply a formatted .XML file; you can reduce the multiple lines for each entry to a single line. And replace the ...password="long-encrypted-key"... with ...password="dummy".... So you wind up with a bunch of
...
lines with appropriate type, name and address, one for each host.

Save the .XML file and restart HPCC. Hopefully, you can use the same credentials for blocks of (all?) hosts. On the Collection Setup tab, select all the hosts with the same credentials. Edit, and choose "Make the same edits to all selected items". Then put in the valid credentials and Apply. Sometimes it makes me Apply more than once; don't know why. Once the edit window is closed, all those hosts now have the desired (encrypted) credentials.
