Securely storing API authentication credentials

Hi,

I have a dashboard which connects to an external API (via HTTPS).  It implements JWT (connect via username/password, retrieves a token, then uses the token for all subsequent requests). 

What is the recommended approach for securely storing API credentials (username/password), once a PBIX is published to the service?

Thanks,

Ben.
