Openhab Cloud Connector State in Rules

I apologize if this has been asked before, I could not find the answer with some searching.

I use “getThingStatusInfo(vThingUID).getStatus()” to pull the status of my things into my rules (ONLINE vs OFFLINE etc). Is there a mechanism to identify if the cloud connector has connected or not? My intention here is to queue up notifications from startup until the connection is established.
