A large message to the SAP Input node (set maximum client wait time)

Once "Maximum client wait time"(SAP Input node) has been exceeded, SAP connection will timeout.
while you can not expect this operation, "Maximum client wait time" is "SAP timeout value".
costomer want to detect when SAP has timed out in the MSGFLOW.
(costomer don't want to set "Maximum client wait time" to zero. )

    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been in Uncommitted Candidate status. Whilst this is a valid request (as indicated by the prior update on this from 5 years ago) unfortunately this item would come with a high development cost and would be difficult to implement in alignment with our flow control design and some of the transactional use cases which the product caters for. Given this, and the solitary vote this has received over a long passage of time, unfortunately on this occasion we do not intend to take this suggestion further forward.
