PINNED Add support to controllerWorkflow script to restart BPs that are in "completed, error" state by individual BP IDs
During system issues, we are unable to bulk restart the BP IDs at a time. This is causing huge support effort in the clean-up process. Existing controllerWorkflow.sh script doesn't have a solution to restart the BPIDs that are in "completed, error...
