qiskit.providers.convert_to_target(configuration, properties=None, defaults=None, custom_name_mapping=None, add_delay=False, filter_faulty=False)

Uses configuration, properties and pulse defaults to construct and return Target class.

In order to convert with a defaults.instruction_schedule_map, which has a custom calibration for an operation, the operation name must be in configuration.basis_gates and custom_name_mapping must be supplied for the operation. Otherwise, the operation will be dropped in the resulting Target object.

That suggests it is recommended to add custom calibrations after creating a target with this function instead of adding them to defaults in advance. For example:

target.add_instruction(custom_gate, {(0, 1): InstructionProperties(calibration=custom_sched)})
