content library item update session: complete

Completes the update session. This indicates that the client has finished making all the changes required to the underlying library item. If the client is pushing the content to the server, the library item will be updated once this call returns. If the server is pulling the content, the call may return before the changes become visible. In that case, the client can track the session to know when the server is done.

This operation requires the session to be in the ACTIVE state.

Depending on the type of the library item associated with this session, a type adapter may be invoked to verify the validity of the files uploaded. The user can explicitly validate the session before completing the session by using the validate operation.

Modifications are not visible to other clients unless the session is completed and all necessary files have been received.
