Managing Problem Submissions

You manage problem submissions by viewing the status and details of problem submissions and cancelling problem submissions.

Viewing the Status of Problem Submissions

To view the status of problems submitted to a project’s solvers, go to the Problem Status tab.

The following information is displayed:

Table 74 Problem Status Tab
Problem ID/Problem Label The problem’s ID or label. The ID is system-generated.
User The member name and email address of the person who submitted the problem.
Submitted On (UTC) When the problem was submitted. Includes the date and time in UTC.
Ended (UTC) When processing of the problem ended. Includes the date and time in UTC.
Solver The name of the solver to which the problem was submitted.
Problem Status The status of the submitted problem. For more information, see Problem Submission Statuses.


Every time you open the Problem Status tab, it is refreshed.


  • To display the most up-to-date status, click Refresh Table.
  • To copy a problem ID to the clipboard, hover over the problem ID and click the copy icon that is displayed.

Problem Submission Statuses

In the Problem Status column, the status of each problem submission can be one of the following:

Table 75 Problem Status Column
Pending The problem was submitted, but the solver has not started working on a solution.
In-Progress The problem was submitted and the solver is working on a solution.
Completed The solver has successfully completed its work on the problem.
Cancelled Work on the problem has been cancelled. Cancelled problems do not use any solver access time.
Failed Work on the problem did not successfully complete. Failed problems do not use any solver access time.

Filtering and Sorting the Columns

Clicking the icons in the table headings or selecting the fields above the table performs the following actions:

Table 76 Columns: Filtering and Sorting
filter_single Filters the rows by matching a part of the problem ID or label.
filter_combo Filters the rows by a combination of a part of a member name or email address, problem status, solver, and submission beginning and ending dates and times.
sort_col Sorts in ascending or descending order.
filter_col Filters on the status in the Problem Status column.
gear_col Displays either problem IDs or problem labels in the column.

Viewing Problem Submission Details

To view a problem’s details, click a problem ID or problem label on the Problem Status tab. The following information is displayed:

Table 77 Problem Status Tab
Problem Parameters Displays the problem’s parameters, ID, solver, problem type, status, and embedded problem data. For more information, see the Solver Properties and Parameters Reference guide.
Solution Displays the resulting sample set, which you can export along with a sample set visualization.
Timing Displays timing parameters for the problem. For more information, see the QPU Solver Datasheet guide.

Cancelling Problem Submissions

To cancel a pending or in-progress problem, click the X in the problem’s Problem Status column.

To cancel multiple pending or in-progress problems, select the checkbox for each problem and click Cancel Problems > Cancel Selected. Cancelled problems do not use any solver access time.

  • If you run scripts to continuously submit problems, refresh the table after cancelling problem submissions to confirm that the cancellation attempts succeeded.
