Arcpy Stop Services: need to hard code password??

I need to stop our ArcGIS Server web map services nightly, just before a scripted compression.  Reading the ArcGIS Server Administrator API documentation, it appears I would need to hard code the credentials of a user in the Publisher role in order to do it.  This is contrary to standard security protocols, and I am hoping someone might suggest an alternative or explain that I am mistaken in my understanding.
