Error message of missing credentials entry not meaningful to end user

      Description

      If exceptions occur in a stage, Jenkins Blue Ocean will only show the exception message in the log. Additional context via the stacktrace is only available if users explicitly switch back to the "old" log viewer.

      Given this behavior, in case of missing credentials, the behavior of the credentials binding plugin is problematic. If it fails, it only provides the credentials ID as output via the CredentialNotFoundException message. This makes it hard for Blue Ocean users to get a grasp of the problem.

            Not really sure why it did not just use AbortException to begin with but I fear there may now be scripts which explicitly catch the CredentialNotFoundException type.
