Leap Administration Overview

Leap Admin is an easy-to-use cloud-based administration tool. You use Leap Admin to invite people 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.

Project members submit problems to quantum or quantum-classical hybrid solvers. 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 project members. A customer contract defines each project, including the project type, the solvers that are available, and the email domains and subdomains (or individual email addresses) of the people who can be invited.

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.

Administration Tasks

  • Manage projects

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

  • Add and manage project members

    To add members, you must first invite them to join your project. You can also set a per-member limit on solver-access time that overrides 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.


  • Application

    A program that submits problems to solvers.

  • Leap user

    A person who has registered in Leap.

  • Project administrator

    A project member who has the Project Admin role.

  • Project member

    A Leap user who has joined a project, also known as a member.

  • Role

    A role gives a member the 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 members 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 Member Roles and Privileges.

  • Seat

    A seat represents access to a project’s solvers for a single member or application. A customer contract specifies the number of seats that are available for each seat type.

  • Seat type

    A seat type specifies the capabilities and limitations of a seat; for example, a User seat is intended for members whose main activity is submitting problems.

    For more information, see Seat Types.


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