So I build my own Daily, Weekly, Hourly scripts?

I think it's more that you create and schedule one script, and that script calls all the others one after another.

 

Or you could apply a custom schedule to your scripts and have them run - say - 30 minutes apart.

Hi can I get some help with what is probably an easy fix please.  

 

I've started using this python utility https://github.com/adamgot/python-plexlibrary where I've saved the files to /mnt/user/appdata/other/python-plexlibrary-master.  When I run the python utility via command line from the folder e.g.

 


python plexlibrary movies_recommended

everything works fine, but when I try to do via script e.g:

 


#!/bin/bash

cd /mnt/user/appdata/other/python-plexlibrary-master 

python plexlibrary movies_recommended

exit

I get this error:

 


Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/runpy.py", line 174, in _run_module_as_main

matching_total, item['title'], item['year']))
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\u2013' in position 23: ordinal not in range(128)

I've also tried:

 


#!/usr/bin/env python

cd /mnt/user/appdata/other/python-plexlibrary-master

plexlibrary movies_recommended
plexlibrary movies_imdb_top_250

exit

Help please

Help please

Me again.  Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong to run a python script please.  When I run the commands:

 

cd /mnt/user/appdata/other/python-plexlibrary-master

python plexlibrary movies_recommended

via putty all is well, but when I try to run a script:

 

#!/bin/bash

cd /mnt/user/appdata/other/python-plexlibrary-master

python plexlibrary movies_recommended

exit

I get errors.

Unraid Newb here. I recently setup a fully automated experience with Plex, Sonarr, Radarr, qbittorrent, and Jackett. I have qbittorrent set to automatically remove torrents after either a 1:1 ratio or after 7 days (to fulfill all tracker seeding requirements). However, I noticed its removing the torrent from qbitt but not removing it from /mnt/user/downloads. So I downloaded CA User Scripts and wrote a one liner to handle this:

sudo find /mnt/user/downloads/ -mtime +7 -exec rm -rf {} \;

Is there a better way to do this? Its preferable to remove the file in /mnt/user/downloads by the downloader. Does anyone know if rtorrent does this?

I'am using a script for snapshotting VMs on BTRFS formatted drive which informs me via telegram when finished. Switching to 6.8.RC4 and adjusting some paths in the script I've noticed some german letters (ä ö ü) getting removed by the script when saving. Never happened in earlier builds. The affected line is the following:

/usr/local/emhttp/webGui/scripts/notify -i normal -s "BTRFS Send/Receive beendet" -d "Script ausgefhrt" -m "$(date '+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M') Information: BTRFS VM Offline Snapshot auf HDD erfolgreich abgeschlossen"

It should be "Script ausgeführt" not "ausgefhrt". Is this an issue from the plugin itself or caused by unraid. I think there was an update for user scripts since I am on 6.8RC but not 100% sure. Any idea how to fix this?

 

full script:

#!/bin/bash
#backgroundOnly=false
#arrayStarted=true
cd /mnt/cache/VMs_backup
sd=$(echo VMs_backup_off* | awk '{print $1}')
ps=$(echo VMs_backup_off* | awk '{print $2}')

if [ "$ps" == "VMs_backup_offline_$(date '+%Y%m%d')" ]
then
    echo "There's already a snapshot from today"
else
	for i in `virsh list | grep running | awk '{print $2}'`; do virsh shutdown $i; done
	
		# Wait until all domains are shut down or timeout has reached.
		END_TIME=$(date -d "300 seconds" +%s)

		while [ $(date +%s) -lt $END_TIME ]; do
			# Break while loop when no domains are left.
			test -z "`virsh list | grep running | awk '{print $2}'`" && break
			# Wait a little, we don't want to DoS libvirt.
			sleep 1
		done
	echo "shutdown completed"
	virsh list | grep running | awk '{print $2}'
    btrfs sub snap -r /mnt/cache/VMs /mnt/cache/VMs_backup_offline_$(date '+%Y%m%d')
	for i in `virsh list --all --autostart|awk '{print $2}'|grep -v Name`; do virsh start $i; done
	sync
    btrfs send -p /mnt/cache/VMs_backup/$ps /mnt/cache/VMs_backup_offline_$(date '+%Y%m%d') | btrfs receive /mnt/disks/VMs_backup_hdd
        if [[ $? -eq 0 ]]; then
        /usr/local/emhttp/webGui/scripts/notify -i normal -s "BTRFS Send/Receive beendet" -d "Script ausgefhrt" -m "$(date '+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M') Information: BTRFS VM Offline Snapshot auf HDD erfolgreich abgeschlossen"
        btrfs sub del /mnt/cache/$sd
        #btrfs sub del /mnt/disks/VMs_backup_HDD/VMs_backup/$sd
        else
        /usr/local/emhttp/webGui/scripts/notify -i warning -s "BTRFS Send/Receive gescheitert" -d "Script abgebrochen" -m "$(date '+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M') Information: Es wurde heute bereits ein Offline Snapshot erstellt"
        fi

@Squid If I change it inside the Unraid ui, you say this is how it is? I never changed the script file itself only via ui and it always worked. 😂 No external editor involved.

There was a change introduced to strip out non-ascii characters to allow for those who did a copy/paste from forum posts as that was inserting hidden characters.

I believe it is the editor built into the plugin.    Thus the suggestion to use an alternative editor.

All in all it's not a big deal. If I edit the script file itself with an external editor the notification comes through correctly. As long as not all german words are filtered out, I'am fine with it 😂

Can i run user scripts remotely? even from different computer or phone inside network?

 

I want to move items from one folder to another. but i want to control when it happens.

You can always run a User Script manually from the Unraid GUI.    Therefore if you can get to the GUI you can run the script whenever you want.

Using the plugin I can't save any schedule options.  When I select something such as Scheduled Daily I click apply but nothing happens.  When I click done and look again the schedule is disabled.  It  won't save for some reason.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  I'll attach diagnostics here.

post the contents of /config/plugins/user.scripts/schedule.json on the flash drive

In the 6.8 RC5 release notes, it says this:

 



In another step toward better security, the USB flash boot device is configured so that programs and scripts residing there cannot be directly executed (this is because the 'x' bit is set now only for directories).  Commands placed in the 'go' file still execute because during startup, that file is copied to /tmp first and then executed from there.  If you have created custom scripts you may need to take a similar approach.

 

I have some custom scripts running with user scripts plugin on boot up. Do we have to change anything?
