With this API, you can cancel or recall previously submitted bulk approval requests. This API accepts the object type and the object ID of the context object as input parameters. You can also add comments to your cancel requests. 

If you submit previously submitted or approved approvals as part of bulk cancel requests, all the approvals are canceled. 

This API is useful when you need to recall a large number of approval requests for various context objects. For example, you are the approvals admin for a data service organization and you need to recall all the approval records for 5 agreements. Using cancelApprovalsBulk API, you can recall all the approval records in one go by calling this API and providing the type and IDs of the five agreements as request parameters.
