Show policy group in dashboard for policy update events

When a policy is updated, the Dashboard in Chef Automate shows an event that displays the policy name and the user id of who updated the specific policy. It would be good to know which Policy Group that particular policy was updated for. This can extremely helpful in monitoring and auditing when a policy changes in a particular environment.
