content library item download session: keep alive

Keeps a download session alive. This operation is allowed only if the session is in the ACTIVE state.

If there is no activity for a download session for a certain period of time, the download session will expire. The download 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 an active download session.
