As the Title says, qbittorrent not saving the torrent file when adding through WebUI when the "Start Torrent" settings is turned off. But adding the same torrent through Desktop UI and unchecking the "Start Torrent" saves the torrent in Torrents folder.

Do you really add .torrent file or just Magnet link?

qBittorrent can't save torrent file since there is no metadata until you start torrent. But "Add new torrent" dialog from Desktop UI preloads metadata for magnet links (unless you close it earlier).

Yes should it follow the same method and either show a similar dialog/ call in Web UI or download the meta data without starting the torrent?

I don't think it's that easy to implement. It seems that the cost-benefit ratio will be very low. @Piccirello?

If showing the dialog is costly, at least save/ download the metadata/ torrent file automatically without starting the torrent?

Why do you really need it?
It's not as easy as it seems at first glance...
In addition, the only reason qBittorrent preloads metadata for magnet links is only to show a list of files (and other info) in the "Add new torrent" dialog.

Thats the reason I need it. when you add though the WebUI there is no way to see the files or sizes in that magnet file till it starts downloading. it would be really great if the same functionality is available in API and downloads the torrent or at least lets you know the list of files and sizes.
