ClientError: Project options for this project do not exist.

Hi All,

I am new to DataRobot and I try to use API to train the model.

I am using this document. I was able to upload the dataset but it gives me error when I want to train the model. In the UI I see that the project is already successfully created and the dataset is uploaded. Any help would be appreciated.






# Use training data to build models
from datarobot import AUTOPILOT_MODE

# Set the project's target and initiate Autopilot (runs in Quick mode unless a different mode is specified)
project.analyze_and_model(target='mpg', worker_count=-1, mode=AUTOPILOT_MODE.QUICK)

# Open the project's Leaderboard to monitor the progress in UI.

# Wait for the model creation to finish

model = project.get_top_model()

Hi @KnowledgeExplorer , thanks for reaching out to the community and for your patience as we looked into this. I circulated your issue internally to see if we could provide some assistance - the team went through example steps and everything worked as expected in DR Notebooks.


Can you let us know if you are a Self-Managed AI Platform customer or if you use cloud so we can help you find the best solution?

Hi, Thanks for the answer. I tried again and got the same error. Maybe you are using a different code.I am not sure which one aplies to me but I got access throught the company. Thanks.

Hi @KnowledgeExplorer,

It's possible that the version you are using is incompatible your SDK version. Here are a few steps you can take to help us narrow down the issue:


After the client has been initialized, check the API version of your install





We can also learn more about the instance you are using by reading the output of





Let us know what these come back with!

Thanks for the answer. I got this output:

{'major': 2, 'minor': 28, 'versionString': '2.28'}

Hi @melissa, thanks for the post.


Can you please confirm your version? If your output for:




returns 2.28, you might be using a newer version of the client that doesn't support your version. For v2.28, please try installing version 2.28 of the SDK with:

pip install "datarobot>=2.28,<3"

You can see the full list of available versions at Let us know if that works!

As additional guidance, the equivalent of project.analyze_and_model() in Python clients prior to version 3 is project.set_target().
