Reject Batch Change

Manually rejects a batch change in pending review status given the batch change ID, resulting in immediate failure. Only system administrators (i.e., support or super user) can manually review a batch change.

Note: If manual review is disabled in the VinylDNS instance, users trying to access this endpoint will encounter a 404 Not Found response since it will not exist.
