# qiskit.providers.Options¶

class Options[source]

Base options object

This class is the abstract class that all backend options are based on. The properties of the class are intended to be all dynamically adjustable so that a user can reconfigure the backend on demand. If a property is immutable to the user (eg something like number of qubits) that should be a configuration of the backend class itself instead of the options.

__init__(*args, **kwargs)

Initialize self. See help(type(self)) for accurate signature.
