DI Widget Concept - Quick Inventory Widgets - Chained Inventory Metrics

In Data Insight, the Metadata widget in its core function acts as a representation of inventory and asset data separate from the typical inter-based metrics that are gathered today. 

It would be beneficial to have an Inventory widget where you could define multiple device groups or object groups and limit the resources to a matched search on a selected metadata value. The display would be a count of the associated devices, along with a table that lists the resources/metadata fields that match the search.

This widget would be able to chain to performance metrics, alerts summaries, and other aggregations. (Ex. I have AWS resources that need to be organized by VPCID, this metadata field is dynamic and can change based upon automation, ideally i would create a device group and add all the devices that have that VPCID to it to capture what is needed, however with API updating the values, this can be unreliable. Instead I select a device group to focus on, and then select a metadata schema field that I want to focus my devices on. A total inventory of the device group is organized by the selected metadata, and displayed with its selected columns and resources, along with a count of all devices currently displayed.)

Considering the use-case of automation in WiFi-Enterprise, AWS, and Azure monitoring, we need a better way to have hybrid dashboard visualizations for devices that have changing metadata metrics day-to-day.
