scancel : used to signal jobs or job steps that are under the control of Slurm
scancel is used to signal or cancel jobs, job arrays or job steps . A job or job step can only be signaled by the owner of that job or user root. If an attempt is made by an unauthorized user to signal a job or job step, an error message will be printed and the job will not be signaled.
