Inventory device records for AWS instances are deleted if AWS status was "terminated" or failed to be retrieved at any time in the past

Inventory device records for AWS instances are deleted if AWS status was "terminated" or failed to be retrieved at any time in the past

Summary

Customers may not see inventories from the VMs on AWS on the "All Inventory" page when AWS import is not used.

Symptom

This issue shows the following symptoms:
1) Inventories from the VMs on AWS come into the ImportedComputer table, but not into ComplianceComputer table. Therefore, the inventories don't appear on the "All Inventory" page.
2)  The "IsTerminated" column has "1" in the ImportedMissingComputer table for the ComplianceComputerIDs which inventory records are missing.
3) The VMEnabledStateID shows "NULL" in the ImportedCloudServiceInstance table and it is not consistent with 2).
