Commit an app submission

Use this method in the Microsoft Store submission API to commit a new or updated app submission to Partner Center. The commit action alerts Partner Center that the submission data has been uploaded (including any related packages and images). In response, Partner Center commits the changes to the submission data for ingestion and publishing. After the commit operation succeeds, the changes to the submission are shown in Partner Center.
