1. Intro

Plex Requests is a simple automated way for users to request new content for Plex.

2. URL

  • To access Plex Requests, visit https://plexrequests.yourdomain.com

3. Initial Setup

i. Domain

  • See Adding a Subdomain on how to add the subdomain plexrequests to your DNS provider.

  • Note: You can skip this step if you are using Cloudflare with Cloudbox.

ii. Install

  • Run the following commands:

    cd ~/cloudbox/
    sudo ansible-playbook cloudbox.yml --tags plexrequests  

4. Setup Wizard

  1. First time you go to the Plex Requests page, you will be presented with the "Welcome to Plex Requests" screen. Click the orange-colored admin page link to be taken to the "Admin" page, then click the Close button.

  2. You will see the "Sign in" prompt. Click the Register link at the bottom.

  3. You will now see "Create an Account" prompt. Fill in your preferred Email and Password and click the Register button. This will be the Admin account for Plex Requests.

5. Settings

  1. You will now be taken to the "General" settings page. You may select whatever options you like here. Click Update Settings to save changes.

  2. On the "Authentication" settings page

    • It is advised to have both Enable user authentication and Require users to login with their passwords enabled (at the very least Enable user authentication enabled).

    • To have your Plex Authorization token automatically retrieved, fill in your Plex Username and Plex Password and click the Get Token button. When this is successful, you will get the "Successfully got token!" message and the Plex authorization token textbox will be filled in.

    • Click Update Settings to save changes.

  3. On the "Radarr" settings page:

    Note: There are some slight differences in the settings for Feeder / Plex setups. See notes below.

    • Check "Enable Radarr"

    • "Radarr server IP or Hostname": radarr

      • For a Feeder / Plex setup, use radarr.yourdomain.com (or the IP address of your Feeder box) instead.

      • For a Feeder / Plex setup, use 443 instead.
    • "Radarr API key": Your Radarr API Key

    • "Enable Radarr SSL": disabled.

      • For Feeder / Plex setup, set it to enabled.
    • Click Update Settings.

    • Click Test Radarr server. The button will update to show "Success!".

    Note: There are some slight differences in the settings for Feeder / Plex setups. See notes below.

    • Check "Enable Sonarr"

    • "Sonarr server IP or Hostname": sonarr

      • For Feeder / Plex setup, use sonarr.yourdomain.com (or the IP address of your Feeder box) instead.
    • "Sonarr server port":8989

      • For Feeder / Plex setup, use 443 instead.
    • "Sonarr API key": Your Sonarr API Key
