[slurm-users] Aborting a job from inside the prolog

We are doing some checking on the users Job inside the prolog script and 
upon failure of those checks the job should be canceled.

Our first approach with `scancel $SLURM_JOB_ID; exit 1` doesn't seem to 
work as the (sbatch) job still gets re-queued.

Is this possible at all (i.e. prevent jobs from running if some check 
fails) and what would be correct?
