Searching for Projects and Users

To search for a project that you administrator or for a user in a project that you administer, do the following:

  1. Click in the global search field Global search (at the top of the page) and enter the text to search for.

    The text matches any part of a project or user name (including an email address). The matching projects and user names are displayed in a dropdown list.

    Tip

    The global search shortcut key is / (forward slash).

    Limitations

    • The search is case-insensitive.
    • Only the Latin-1 character set is supported.
    • The minimum number of characters required to display matches is 3.
    • The maximum number of characters is 254.
  2. If one of the specific users or projects in the dropdown list is what you are searching for, then select it; otherwise, narrow your search by selecting one of the following options from the dropdown list:

    • Show all results for search_text

      Displays a list of all matching project and user names.

    • Users ( number_of_results ) — Show All

      Displays a list of all matching user names.

    • Projects ( number_of_results ) — Show All

      Displays a list of all matching project names.

Tip

  • Use the Up and Down arrow keys to select an item in the results list and press Enter to go to the selection.
  • To go back to the complete search results, click Search Results.
  • To try a new search, replace the text in the global search field Global search.

Viewing Project Information

You view project information in the following sections on the project’s Overview tab:

Table 61 Current Usage Section
Project Monthly Solver Time Usage The percent of time used for all solvers in the project for the current month.
Table 62 Project Details Section
Project Name The name of the project.
System Project ID Unique identifier for a project. It is used for internal purposes, such as a prefix for the project’s API token.
Customer Reference ID You provide this ID, which can be used for your specific internal processes.
Table 63 Solver Access Time Configuration Section
Solver Access Start Date The date that access is provided to solvers. This date is determined by the customer contract.
Solver Access End Date The date that access to solvers ends. This date is determined by the customer contract.
Renewal Date The beginning and end dates for your project and the date on which solver access time is renewed. For more information, see Setting the Default Solver-Access Time for Each Project Member.
Monthly Solver Access Time The amount of solver access time available for each month.
Project Member Default Solver Access Time Sets the default solver access time for members in the project. For more information, see Setting the Default Solver-Access Time for Each Project Member.
  • Allowed Email Settings

    This section is read-only and was populated with the appropriate email addresses (or patterns) when your project was created. The Permitted Emails field displays the individual email addresses or the patterns—via the wildcard (* (asterisk)) symbol—for the email addresses that you can add to your project. Patterns typically map to domains or subdomains. For example, *@mycompany.com allows all email addresses at mycompany.com. To add other email addresses or patterns, contact D-Wave Customer Support.

Viewing the Available Solvers

You view a list of solvers that are available in the project in the Overview > Solvers Available in Project section. The status of solvers is displayed in the Status column.

The solvers that are available in a project is determined by the customer contract. To make changes to the solvers in your project, contact D-Wave Customer Support.

To view a solver’s properties and parameters, click its name in the Solver Name column. For more information on solver properties and parameters, see the Solver Properties and Parameters Reference guide.

Setting the Default Solver-Access Time for Each Project Member

The amount of solver-access time that is available to project members is renewed every month on the day of the month specified in the Solver Access Start Date field. Solvers have different usage rates. For more information, see the Operation and Timing section of the QPU Solver Datasheet.

Note

If the day of the month for renewal (as specified in the Solver Access Start Date field) is greater than the last day of any subsequent month, then the renewal date is simply the last day of that subsequent month. For example, if August 31 is specified in the Solver Access Start Date field, then the subsequent month’s renewal date is September 30.

You set the default solver access time for all project members in Overview tab > Solver Access Time Configuration section > Project Member Default Solver Access Time field.

By default, the Set Default to Unlimited Access option is selected, which allows any project member to use the full monthly solver access time allocated to the project. If you want to keep project members from using up all of the project’s monthly solver access time allocation, deselect this option and enter a specific amount in the Project Member Default Solver Access Time field. For example, 30 minutes of monthly solver-access time is specified in the Monthly Solver Access Time field. If you want to keep any one of your project members from using up all of this time and limit them to 5 minutes each per month, then you specify 5 minutes in the Project Member Default Solver Access Time field.

To override this default and specify a different amount of solver access time for an individual member, see Modifying a User’s Solver Access Time.

Viewing Project Status

A project’s status is the state of the project in the project life cycle as follows:

Table 65 Project Status
New The project has been created, but its Start Date has not been reached. You can specify the users to be invited, but the invitations themselves are not sent until the Start Date has been reached.
Active

The project has started as determined by its Start Date.

Note: Invitations that have been scheduled are sent on the Start Date.

Suspended

The project cannot be used.

Note: This is an exception state. If you believe your project should not have been suspended, contact D-Wave Customer Support.

Expired The End Date for the project’s solver access time has been reached. Project members can still log in to the project, but cannot run problems on the solvers.

Project status is displayed next to the project name on the project’s page.
