Radarr Attributes

Configuring Radarr is optional but will allow you to send movies to a Radarr instance when they're found missing while updating a library's collections.

Warning

Radarr V2 may work, but it is not supported. Please upgrade to V3 if you can.

Items in your List Exclusions will be ignored by PMM.

A radarr mapping can be either in the root of the config file as global mapping for all libraries, or you can specify the radarr mapping individually per library.

At the library level, only those settings which are different to the global settings need to be specified; there is an example of this at the end of the page.

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

radarr:

Tip

The token can be found by going to Radarr > Settings > General > Security > API Key

The quality_profile must be the exact name of the desired quality profile, including all spaces and capitalization.

  • You can set most attributes per collection by using the Radarr Settings in the collection definition.

Specifying different options for specific libraries:

In this example we have two Radarr instances, standard and 4K, and four libraries showing how one can override individual settings at the library level. Also, movies are being added to the "Library05" library outside Radarr via a custom script and I want those new movies added to Radarr for tracking.

libraries:
  Library01:     # this library uses the default radarr config
    collection_files:
      - file: config/Movies.yml

  Library02:     # this library overrides radarr root path and profile
    collection_files:
      - file: config/Movies.yml
    radarr:
      root_folder_path: /data/media/movies/tony
      quality_profile: Better

  Library03:      # this library overrides radarr quality profile
    collection_files:
      - file: config/Movies.yml
    radarr:
      quality_profile: Best

  Library04:      # this library uses the 4K radarr instance
    collection_files:
      - file: config/Movies.yml
    radarr:
      url: https://radarr-4k.bing.bang
      token: SOME_OTHER_TOKEN
      root_folder_path: /data/media/movies/geezer
      quality_profile: Bestest

  Library05:      # movies get added by a custom script so they should get added to radarr-4k
    collection_files:
      - file: config/Movies.yml
