Radarr is an independent fork of Sonarr reworked for automatically downloading movies via Usenet and BitTorrent.


Set radarr_enabled: true in your /inventories/[my inventory]/group_vars/nas.yml file.

The Radarr web interface can be found at http://ansible_nas_host_or_ip:7878 by default

Specific Configuration

First make sure Radarr has permissions to write and read the /download, and /movies folders. Do this by ensuring the radarr_movies_directory: and radarr_download_directory settings are correct.

Radarr will get the file path from the Download client. On default settings with Transmission the path is /storage/downloads/complete. You will need to create a path mapping in the Remote Path Mappings settings under Download Client to point to your internal path that is by default /downloads. If you have difficulties with the path mapping you could also just add a new volume path for the Transmission container and use /downloads as the download directory.

For Radarr to understand that the /movies folder is a folder, you'll need to add a new subfolder into it. You can also do this by adding a random movie to the folder. Keep in mind to have the internal setting Create empty movie folders on yes
