Trakt Attributes

Configuring Trakt.tv is optional but is required for Trakt based collections to function.

A trakt mapping is in the root of the config file.

Below is a trakt mapping example and the full set of attributes:

trakt:
  client_id: ################################################################
  client_secret: ################################################################
  pin:
  authorization:
    access_token:
    token_type:
    expires_in:
    refresh_token:
    scope:
    created_at:

Attribute Allowed Values Default Required
client_id Trakt Application Client ID N/A
client_secret Trakt Application Client Secret N/A
pin Trakt Pin None
  • All other attributes will be filled in by Plex Meta Manager.

To connect to Trakt.tv you must create a Trakt application and supply Plex Meta Manager the client_id, client_secret, and pin provided, please do the following:

  1. Click here to create a Trakt API application.
  2. Enter a Name for the application.
  3. Enter urn:ietf:wg:oauth:2.0:oob for Redirect uri.
  4. Click the SAVE APP button.
  5. Record the Client ID and Client Secret as client_id and client_secret in your Configuration File.
  6. Click the Green Authorize Button next to the Redirect URI

    Trakt Authorize

  7. Record the PIN as pin in your Configuration File.

Warning

Run Plex Meta Manager shortly after obtaining your PIN; the PIN may expire at some point.

Online Authorization Script

Plex Meta Manager requires interactive mode to be able to enter the Client ID and Client Secret. Some systems (namely NAS) make this difficult to accomplish. Chazlarson has developed an online script that can be run to generate the MAL and Trakt authentication outside of Plex Meta Manager and then paste the end-result directly into the configuration file.

The Online Auth tool can be found here.

Simply press the play button, wait a little bit, and then follow the on-screen prompts.
