[Request] Pause based on priority

Post by lexguy2007 » 04 Jan 2019, 02:55

I am looking for a script that will pause downloads added by Sonarr and Radarr for low priority as set in each of those respective programs yet will allow high priority downloads to run. Anyone have or know of a script like that and can assist me it getting it set up?

This should be achievable via a scan-script. In the script you can check priority of the item and then instruct nzbget to pause the item.

If you need to pause only items coming from certain programs you need a way to detect where the files come from. For that you could use special categories (which you use only in that programs).

For details on scan-scripts see https://nzbget.net/scan-scripts. If you have troubles with your script then post your script and we'll improve it together.

Here two examples of scan-scripts: https://forum.nzbget.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2999 and https://forum.nzbget.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2178

I am having trouble getting it to work though. My need is to have Sonarr set the priority for older shows at Very Low and for the script to therefor PAUSE the download. If it is a newly aired show, I have Sonarr set up to make the priority Normal and therefor I want the download to run.

I added the script in the Extensions and it is first in ScriptOrder and it is set up for the TV2 Category to which Sonarr sends the downloads. Have I overlooked something?
