Add the AWS Event Based Discovery “RegionsInterested” option for all of the AWS Jobs

All of the other AWS jobs, especially the “AWS by Web Services” which we use extensively will go through literally every region to attempt to discovery the various namespaces, but for national companies with no international presence like ourselves. We don’t need to search the regions in China, or any of the gov instances, etc, and they just cause the discovery job to take over two hours for 5 of our accounts complete. The new UI, and the legacy UI through the “previous interface” let you set EC2, IAM and RDS “endpoints” in the AWS credentials, but I think the RegionsInterested parameter from the new “AWS Event Based Discovery” is much more elegant, and easier to work with solution.

As Diabolos said, this is an elegant solution. (Obi Wan cannot be wrong 🙂 )
