What is it?

Kometa can update many metadata fields for movies, shows, collections, seasons, and episodes and can act as a backup if your plex DB goes down. It can even update metadata the plex UI can't like Season Names. If the time is put into the metadata configuration file you can have a way to recreate your library and all its metadata changes with the click of a button.


Kometa is the replacement for Plex Meta Manager. A simple migration for your appdata is available by running sb install sandbox-pmm-kometa-migration.

1. Installation

You will need to create a config file prior to running the tag:


There is a Docker-based walkthrough on the Kometa wiki here that you can use to learn how to create this file. Once you've created it, move the file into /opt/kometa/ and then run the tag.

sb install sandbox-kometa

2. Setup

To configure the time that Kometa should run, you may override the kometa_time variable via the inventory system. The default is "03:00" or 3:00 AM in the server's time zone.
