      Description

      When looking up a password, the AliasService should be able to consult the available set of environment variables as well as a remote source and the Gateway credential store.

      TBD: How should the alias name be specified in the Gateway configuration to determine that the value is to be found using the environment variables.

      1. Specify the name as usual and have the AliasService check the environment first then perform the lookup as is done today
      2. Specify the name as usual and have the AliasService check the environment after performing the lookup as is done today
      3. Add some decoration to the alias name so that the AliasService knows to look only in the environment
