Enhancements/bug fixes for Data Studio Web Console

System: Data Studio Web Console
Actor: DBA

I use DSWC to monitor and run maintenance tasks in an environment of over 230 databases. There are several improvements and bug fixes that would make this a much better product and much more suitable to fullfilling its role as a replacement for Control Center, which it now does with very mixed results.

I have described the features that I would like to see added to DSWC at some length here:
To summarize:
1) sorting/filtering/searching of database connection lists displayed when selecting targets for jobs/alerts/email notifications - or at least display them in alphabetical order...
2) ability to perform operations on groups of databases
3) ability to re-enable database connections marked as bad due to invalid credentials
4) ability to name job schedules
5) ability to prevent DSWC from running jobs that have not been started due to DSWC crash
