For cloud policies, enable filtering of instance types by instance type value

For cloud policies, enable filtering of instance types by instance type value. For example, I would like to create a policy that restricts a group of VMs to stay within a certain architecture type such as V5. This is important in some cases based ...

Filter based on risk category and description

Please add support to be able to create a group based on risk category (and description if possible) so that I can build policies that are specific to different types of risk. For example, I would like to be able to create a group and policy that ...

When creating a volume scaling policy I want to be able to easily select groups for the policies in the same way as the VM policies work.

Disable All Actions Switch under Global Default Policies must include Parking Actions. Currently does not.

Automatic policy creation for instance type scale that take Availability Zones into consideration.

Sometimes, we encounter the error 'The requested configuration is currently not supported.' due to the instance scaling action. Example: t3.micro -> t3a.nano Regions where each instance type is supported: t3.micro: ap-northeast-1d, ap-northeast...
