Self-repair of a data source marked as unavailable

There are cases where a data source get's marked as unavailable which then requires manual intervention, in the form of 'test connection' via the UI, or running a web service to refresh the source.

How can we have this as part of a self-repair option, so that once a data source has been marked as unavailable, the data source can attempt to repair itself. This is extremely important in cloud offerings where down-time needs to be kept at a minimum.

Hey Manish,

I've logged this request on your behalf with some ideas, what I'm thinking is a way to configure the data source 'refresh' web-service call on a schedule. So you could say, if data source fails, then run refresh call, then if fails, wait x mins, run again, etc..

Then once it get's to it's final attempt and still fails, to email YF admin. However in terms of the best way to implement I'll leave that for product team review and circle back with more details (once reviewed).

If you have any ideas happy to add also.
