Leap Administration Overview

Leap Admin is an easy-to-use cloud-based administration tool. You use Leap Admin to invite users and manage their access to projects in the Leap quantum cloud service, view the status of problems submitted to solvers, troubleshoot submission issues, and generate solver usage reports.

Users submit problems to solvers, which are quantum processing units (QPUs), classical, or hybrid; hybrid solvers use a combination of quantum and classical resources. Solvers are available by region (for example, North America or Europe). A project is a way of managing a logical or organizational grouping of solvers and users. A customer contract defines each project, including the solvers that are available, the amount of access time that is available each month to run problems on solvers, and the domains and subdomains (or individual email addresses) of the users who can be invited. In addition, users can have an individual amount of time allocated to them.

For information about D-Wave quantum computers, problems, and solvers, go to the Getting Started with D-Wave Solvers guide.

If you have access to Leap Admin, then you have been designated as a project administrator to manage one or more projects that have been created by D-Wave in accordance with your customer contract.

To get started quickly, go to Quick Start.

    • Log Out

      Log out of Leap Admin.

  • Tabs that organize tasks into logical groups as follows:

    • Overview

      Displays information about the project and enables you to change the default solver-access time for project members.

    • Problem Status

      A table summary of the statuses of all submitted problems. In the table, you can click a problem ID to drill down to the problem’s parameters and resulting sample set.

    • Reporting

      Generate CSV or Excel reports on solver usage statistics.

    • Project Members

    View a list of users and information about them. To display more information about specific users, click their user names.

Administration Tasks

  • Manage projects

    You can set the default for any single member’s solver-access time and view project information such as project members, the solvers available in the project, and the project status.

  • Add and manage users

    To add users, you must first invite them to join your project. You can also set per-user limits on solver-access time that override the project default.

  • View and manage problems submitted to solvers in the projects

    You can view and filter a list of problem submissions, access the details of any problem, and cancel pending submissions.

  • Generate and export usage reports

    You can generate usage reports and export them to XLSX and CSV files.


  • Leap user

    Someone who has registered in Leap.

  • Member (also known as a project member)

    A Leap user who has joined a project.

  • Project administrator

    A project member who has the Project Admin role.

  • Role

    A role gives a user privileges to perform specific actions in a project. A role can be either Project Admin or User. The Project Admin role is intended for people who administer a project. Only users with the Project Admin role can access Leap Admin. The User role is intended for people whose main activity is submitting problems. For more information, see User Roles and Privileges.


For sequential steps in the user interface, variables are indicated in italics; for example, Leap Admin > project_name.
