WTH i need a list of entities to be recorded with influx

I want to record on influx (but could be any database) only some entities so i had to set up an include with a list and i have to remember to edit it anytime i change the name or add a new entity i want to keep track. My suggestion is to put like a check box on entities to say i want to store this one, or like a tag system. If i tag an entity with influx it will be recorded no matter the name change.
