With this command can I add a "normal" user to SLURM with "scancel" privileges over jobs in the same group?

     sacctmgr add coordinator account=<accountname> names=<username>

At official SLURM documentation (https://slurm.schedmd.com/sacctmgr.html), I have read this:


         A bank account, typically specified at job submit time using the --account= option. These may be arranged in a hierarchical fashion, for example accounts chemistry and physics may be children of the account science. The hierarchy may have an arbitrary depth.


         A special privileged user usually an account manager or such that can add users or sub accounts to the account they are coordinator over. This should be a trusted person since they can change limits on account and user associations inside their realm.


So I understand a "coordinator" role assigned to a user allows that user to do some other tasks... but not to cancel jobs with "scancel" (jobs, of course, of others users in the same group)
