content library item update session: keep alive

Keeps an update session alive.

If there is no activity for an update session after a period of time, the update session will expire, then be deleted. The update session expiration timeout is configurable in the Content Library Service system configuration. The default is five minutes. Invoking this operation enables a client to specifically extend the lifetime of the update session.
