Hi Chip

Pyslurm <https://pyslurm.github.io/23.2/> is a python library that enables
interfacing with slurm from within a python script. I played around with
and older version that  implemened only srun/sbatch but it looks like the
new version also covers the other s* commands take a look at the API here

So I guess you can use Pyslurm as a basis for a web service and in this way
achieve what you want. I wonder how you plan to do the users'
authentication part, though... Would appreciate it if you can share some
ideas on that.
