[NzbProcess] Pause based on priority

Post by Arsenal » 14 Apr 2014, 02:38

So i've set NZBDrone to pass older files (14+ days) to NZBGet with very low Priority, and would like NZBGet to set these ones as Paused so i don't run the risk of inadvertently downloading gigs worth of archive files. From looking around it sounds as if i should be able to do this with NZBProcess or NZBAddedProcess, but i'm not really sure how?

Any tips would be much appreciated.

Yes, that's possible with NzbProcess:
Pause-Priority.py
(1.77 KiB) Downloaded 394 times
I also suggest you to ask NzbDrone dev to add an option to send files in paused state (that should be easy for him, just a parameter in the "append" call).

Thank you for this. Interesting that there is a flag that can be passed for things to be passed as Paused. I notice that Couchpotato doesn't give me the option to pause either, so i'd best suggest it to both of them.

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but im interested in implementing the script you made here. I've gotten it to fire off when the NZBs are added to the queue, but every NZB that gets added throws the error below:

Code: Select all

Pause-Priority: Traceback (most recent call last):
INFO    Pause-Priority:   File "/home/jfeeser/nzbget/Pause-Priority.py", line 47, in <module>
INFO    Pause-Priority:     priority = int(os.environ['NZBNP_PRIORITY'])
INFO    Pause-Priority:   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/UserDict.py", line 23, in __getitem__
INFO    Pause-Priority:     raise KeyError(key)
INFO    Pause-Priority: KeyError: 'NZBNP_PRIORITY'
Any thoughts?

The script is for use in option NzbProcess, not NzbAddedProcess.

Ha! Completely read the original directions wrong. Dropped it in the right spot and it worked like a charm. Thanks!
