Can we pass parameters/arguments to reusable step


We have steps that we are using for testing our python services.

The steps called 9 times and the only change inside the steps is the argument passed to our script

- parallel:
- <<: *python-service-...1
- <<: *python-service-...2
- <<: *python-service-...3
- <<: *python-service-...4

 Can we pass an argument to one reusable step ??

Something like this:

- parallel:
- <<: *python-test {...1}
- <<: *python-test {...2}
- <<: *python-test {...3}
- <<: *python-test {...4}
python-test: &python-test
image: ...
name: Python Test - $SERVICE
- source scripts/ $SERVICE
- "**/$SERVICE-coverage.xml"

You can definitely call a script from a step, and have it call the script with each of the arguments. But as for getting the pipeline to pass the argument and to perform the steps in parallel....not that I know of.

It won't help me to parallelize the flow, I will need to handle threads/processes inside the script.

In the case of pytest/pip, I don't want to handle threads.

Also need the current functionality
