Expansion of groups

Would like to see ScienceLogic consider the expansion of groups beyond (Device Groups) to include:

Site Groups - a distinct site or location which may contain many devices matching a dynamic expression, a location-based attribute (for example lat/long), a portion of the device name, or also include static members.   For example, all devices with an attribute or name match of site ID = 1382 are part of site  Pekin, Illinois, US.

Interface Groups - group of interfaces, for example, all interfaces matching a parent device name portion of name or description, or other set of conditions / expressions.   For example, all interfaces with "wan" in the name should be in the WAN Interfaces Group.

Collection / DA Groups - group of collections across various devices by expression/condition.  For example, all IP SLA tests with "TEAMS" in the test tag name.

    This probably is better suited as an Idea in the Ideas Hub section.

    You could do this with a custom attribute with the long/latitude and site name.  Then use a dynamic device group to pull based on the site name.  We used a program to call graphql/api to load the data.  Then we use the long/late to create google maps to site click through to a dashboard.  We wanted to take to the rack but customer didnt want it.
