work around:

when submitting add a user defined variable


+KillMe = "True"


+KillMe = "False"

for those jobs which you wish to skip/run respectively

submit the cluster on hold ("hold = true")

then run the following command

condor_rm -constraint "KillMe=="True""

release the remaining jobs....

A less hacky alternate is to redefine the requirements for the non
runnable jobs but then negotiate all jobs in cluster would need to be
switched on which isn't great so the former way is far less error
