Need pod priority for ACE integration pods on CP4I

We are running ACE EUS version on CP4I EUS version on Openshift on Azure Cloud.

We have 100+ ACE integrations running on CP4I of which some of them are business critical and they need to be running at all times including when one or more worker node are unavailable.

In kubernetes terms, this would mean that a pod priority be set which indicates the importance of a pod relative to other pods. If a pod cannot be scheduled, the scheduler tries to preempt (evict) lower priority pods to make scheduling of the pending (more important) pod possible.

Today it is not possible to do this as there is no such option in the ACE integration server CR.
