Disable Drone Factory Folder Scanning

DEPRECATED: Drone Factory is deprecated and should be disabled, use "Wanted" -> "Manual Import" to manually import arbitrary directories. See the Wiki for more information.

You can disable Drone Factory folder scanning via the advanced setting "Drone Factory Interval" on the download client settings page, by setting it to zero.

Post Processing Script

You can configure your download client to run a script to send a command to Sonarr's API instructing it to run a scan on the Drone Factory folder.

The script will need to send a POST with a JSON body as described here: Command

Example Scripts


curl http://localhost:8989/api/command -X POST -d '{"name": "downloadedepisodesscan"}' --header "X-Api-Key:YOUR_API_KEY_GOES_HERE"


$url = "http://8989/api/command"
$json = "{ ""name"": ""downloadedepisodesscan"" }"

Write-Host "Publishing update $version ($branch) to: $url"
Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $url -Method Post -Body $json -Headers @{"X-Api-Key"="YOUR_API_KEY_GOES_HERE"}
