I have a requirement where in i want to start pytest from a microservice

So the user will be sending a restAPI request and based on that i should be
able to do the service will start a pytest session.

i have couple of questions on how to achieve this.

1. All pytest invocations i see is from cmd line.. can i invoke the pytest
run from within another piece of code?

2. If yes then can i run it as a seperate thread/process all together from
the service?

3. If yes to that also.. suppose i want to handle rest requests like stop
testrun in between how do i achieve it.. i dont want to kill the thread..
once the ongoing test is completed then i should stop the execution
gracefully. python threading library offers event objects to achieve such
things.. i am not sure if i will be able to do such things in a
