Put a configurable cap on concurrent automated actions for the cloud provider to help with throttling.

The client is experiencing AWS throttling for EC2 Scaling Actions. 1000 actions can happen at the same time but can fail mid action due to AWS Throttling. . There is a setting called " properties:     action-orchestrator:          actionExecution.concurrentAutomatedActions: 50 " which can cap the total concurrent actions - BUT we don't want this to extend to ALL automated actions. The client also has on prem WPA actions which we don't want to cap.  

I would like to be able to constrain JUST THE AWS actions to let's say 50 concurrent actions - to help with throttling. How this happens is not important. But I would suggest EITHER a specific parameter in YAML like actionExecution.concurrentAWSAutomatedActions:  OR more conveniently (so we don't have to edit the yaml) put the cap into the Automation Policies.  Set Concurrent Actions to 50 for a particular SCOPE - maybe just AWS or Just Azure etc etc.
