Run a job

Invoke a Qiskit Runtime primitive. Note the returned job ID. You will use it to check the job's status and review results.

Body Parameters (application/json)

Name, TypeDescription
program_id
Required
string

ID of the primitive to be executed

hub
Required
string

The hub of the instance

group
Required
string

The group of the instance

project
Required
string

The project of the instance

backend
Required
string

Name that identifies the system on which to run the job

params

Parameters to inject into the primitive as key-value pairs

runtime
string

Name and tag of the image to use when running a program. Should follow the pattern "name:tag".

log_level
string

Logging level of the job

Possible Values: criticalerrorwarninginfodebug
session_id
string

Identifier of the session that the job is a part of

tags
string[]

List of job tags

cost
number

Cost of the job as the estimated time it should take to complete (in seconds). Should not exceed the cost of the primitive

session_time
number

Parameter to specify length of a session in seconds. A session allows to group a collection of iterative calls to the quantum computer. Session length cannot exceed user device limit and should be greater than job cost.
