AppBuilder Option to Disable Cache on Per Entity Basis

There is a hard-coded time to live of 10 minutes from Engine to AppBuilder. Old collection data is actually removed after the cleanup thread runs. That cleanup thread only runs every 2 minutes, so there have been scenarios in which an item is almost 10 minutes old, the cleanup thread runs and doesn't remove it, and then waits for another 2 minutes. We have a custom data collection refresh table on the AppBuilder homepage that sometimes takes 14 minutes to update, which is unacceptable. Users would prefer instantaneous time to live for this data collection when it only has 7 time stamp records to refresh.
