Add "180 /365 days" and/or "any number of days" for Max Observation Period

1.Add 180 days and 365 days to max observation period
2.Make it possible to set any number of days for max observation period (e.g. 14 days, 60 days, etc.)

Japanese customers often have stable system environments and request longer max observation periods.
Currently, the max observation period is 90 days, but we have received requests for a longer period. (180 days, 365 days, etc.).

On the other hand, some operations reach their peak in two weeks. In that case, a 14-day max observation period is required.
For that kind of purpose, it is helpful if we have a chance to select "any number of days".

    14 or 21 days would nicely align with anyone who run agile development processes that have releases every 2 - 3 weeks. A common agile practice. Agree that flexibility to set whatever value that is representative of a customer's business / update cycles makes our actions more defensible.
