Configuring Trakt in the config is required for any of these builders.

Trakt List

Finds every item in the Trakt List.

The expected input is a Trakt List URL. Multiple values are supported only as a list.

The sync_mode: sync and collection_order: custom Setting are recommended since the lists are continuously updated and in a specific order.

Trakt Lists cannot be sorted through the API, but the list is always returned to the default list order if you own the list.

Tip

If you have authorized Trakt then you can use private Trakt Lists, this is not possible if you have not authorized Trakt.

Warning

Trakt lists and users come and go, and PMM has no control over this. The list URLs found in this documentation are used here as examples and are available and working at time of writing, but they may disappear at any time. Do not take their use here as a guarantee that they exist or are working when you read this.

Syncing Plex Collections to Trakt Lists

A combination of PMM settings/attributes can be utilized to create a collection via PMM and then sync them to a blank or existing Trakt List.

NOTE: You must either create an empty Trakt list or specify an existing Trakt list which you have write access to.

collections:
  My Favourite Movies:
    sync_to_trakt_list: myfilms
    # trakt_list: https://trakt.tv/users/plexmetamanager/lists/myfilms  OPTIONAL TWO-WAY SYNC
    plex_search:
      any:
        rating.gte: 8
        sort_by: user_rating.desc

In this example, PMM will generate a Plex collection with any films that I have rated 8.0 or above (using the plex_search). The sync_to_trakt_list will take those films and then sync them to my myfilms Trakt list.

I can optionally also enable the trakt_list to create a two-way sync between Plex and Trakt. This allows me to add films to the Trakt list that I want in my Plex collection, and then sync them to Plex.
