API to verify the Heartbeat of B2Bi/SFG

API to verify the Heartbeat of B2Bi/SFG, we can achieve Heartbeat of B2Bi/SFG by calling Hello world http adapter with hello world bp.

Here is a chance of raising false alarm though application is up & running state, but HTTP adapter is in down/disabled in this scenario it would be a false alarm to business.

To avoid this kind of situation it would be good to have one API by which we can check the heartbeat of application, whenever we call this API,if it returns status code 200 it means that system is up and running.

    Thank you for participating in the request for enhancement community. At this time, we are unable to prioritize this request in the short term, however, we have added this to our roadmap and will continue to monitor. We have plans to introduce a new RESTful Server Adapter that would allow a user to host a business process as an API and that BP could conduct a custom health chcek.
