Allow a way for app owners to see pending changes without Turbonomic access

As a user I would like the ability to configure which properties are shown in the entity information widget, so I can see them quickly without having to click 'show all' which will save me time when using Turbonomic

Turbonomic must provide the consistent logic as key summary(text explanation) to Admins for the recommendation action.

The image of "Turbonomic recommendation action" as attached is just an example. Turbonomic is recommending that the current AWS EC2 VM be changed from A type to B type for better resource utilization. However, we can not know why the recommendatio...

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