How to cancel a server fetch call to a remote endpoint?

Hey guys, I need a way to cancel a request made from nitro to multiple external dotnet core apis - and I didn't find a way to "forward" the cancellation from the the nuxt frontend to the nuxt/nitro backend. Can anyone help me? Is this even possible? Background: The endpoints do some complex longer running tasks and it would be awesome if the get cancelled (as they normally would if the calling end closes/ends the connection)

thanks @L422Y for your reply! I already tried the abortController, which works to a certain way, BUT The problem I am facing is that I don't want to cancel every previous request if a new one comes in (because this would led to issues between different instances calling the nuxt api) - just the cancellation from the current fetch should be aborted if it is cancelled from outside. I tried event.node.req.on handler,but these are also coming after the request finished and not when it got cancelled already Found an issue, but closed: https://github.com/nuxt/nuxt/issues/22684 which leds to https://github.com/unjs/unenv/issues/153 which is still open
