Jackett works as a proxy server: it translates queries from apps (Sonarr, Radarr, SickRage, CouchPotato, Mylar3, Lidarr, DuckieTV, qBittorrent, Nefarious etc.) into tracker-site-specific http queries, parses the html or json response, and then sends results back to the requesting software. This allows for getting recent uploads (like RSS) and performing searches. Jackett is a single repository of maintained indexer scraping & translation logic - removing the burden from other apps.

Developer note: The software implements the Torznab (with hybrid nZEDb/Newznab category numbering) and TorrentPotato APIs.

A third-party Golang SDK for Jackett is available from webtor-io/go-jackett

Jackett Torznab query syntax

Jackett accepts Torznab queries following the specifications described in the Torznab document. For example, .../api/v2.0/indexers/<aJackettIndexerName>/results/torznab/api?apikey=<yourJackettApiKey>&t=caps would return the capabilities of the indexer, and .../api/v2.0/indexers/<aJackettIndexerName>/results/torznab/api?apikey=<yourJackettApiKey>&t=search&q=keywords would perform a free text search on that indexer.

Search modes and parameters

A list of supported API search modes and parameters:

t=search:
   params  : q
t=tvsearch:
   params  : q, season, ep, imdbid, tvdbid, rid, tmdbid, tvmazeid, traktid, doubanid, year, genre
t=movie:
   params  : q, imdbid, tmdbid, traktid, doubanid, year, genre
t=music:
   params  : q, album, artist, label, track, year, genre
t=book:
   params  : q, title, author, publisher, year, genre

Examples:

.../api?apikey=APIKEY&t=search&cat=1,3&q=Show+Title+S01E02

.../api?apikey=APIKEY&t=tvsearch&cat=1,3&q=Show+Title&season=1&ep=2
.../api?apikey=APIKEY&t=tvsearch&cat=1,3&genre=comedy&season=2023&ep=02/13

.../api?apikey=APIKEY&t=movie&cat=2&q=Movie+Title&year=2023
.../api?apikey=APIKEY&t=movie&cat=2&imdbid=tt1234567

.../api?apikey=APIKEY&t=music&cat=4&album=Title&artist=Name

.../api?apikey=APIKEY&t=book&cat=5,6&genre=horror&publisher=Stuff

Filter indexers

A special "filter" indexer is available at .../api/v2.0/indexers/<filter>/results/torznab It will query the configured indexers that match the <filter> expression criteria and return the combined results as "all".

Supported filters

Filter Condition
type:<type> where the indexer type is equal to <type>
tag:<tag> where the indexer tags contain <tag>
lang:<tag> where the indexer language start with <lang>
test:{passed|failed} where the last indexer test performed passed or failed
status:{healthy|failing|unknown} where the indexer state is healthy (successfully operates in the last minutes), failing (generates errors in the recent call) or unknown (unused for a while)

Supported operators

Operator Condition
!<expr> where not <expr>
<expr1>+<expr2>[+<expr3>...] where <expr1> and <expr2> [and <expr3>...]
<expr1>,<expr2>[,<expr3>...] where <expr1> or <expr2> [or <expr3>...]

Example 1: The "filter" indexer at .../api/v2.0/indexers/tag:group1,!type:private+lang:en/results/torznab will query all the configured indexers tagged with group1 or all the indexers not private and with en language (en-en,en-us,...)

Example 2: The "filter" indexer at /api/v2.0/indexers/!status:failing,test:passed will query all the configured indexers not failing or which passed its last test.

Aggregate indexers

A special "all" indexer is available at /api/v2.0/indexers/all/results/torznab. It will query all configured indexers and return the combined results.

If your client supports multiple feeds it's recommended to add each indexer directly instead of using the "all" indexer. Using the "all" indexer has no advantages (besides reduced management overhead), the only disadvantages:

  • you lose control over indexer specific settings (categories, search modes, etc.)
  • mixing search modes (IMDB, query, etc.) might cause low-quality results
  • indexer specific categories (>= 100000) can't be used.
  • slow indexers will slow down the overall result
  • total results are limited to 1000

To get all Jackett indexers including their capabilities you can use t=indexers on the "all" indexer. To get only configured/unconfigured indexers you can also add configured=true/false as a query parameter.

Installation on Windows

We recommend you install Jackett as a Windows service using the supplied installer. You may also download the zipped version if you would like to configure everything manually.

To get started with using the installer for Jackett, follow the steps below:

  1. Check if you need any .NET prerequisites installed, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/install/windows?tabs=net80#dependencies
  2. Download the latest version of the Windows installer, "Jackett.Installer.Windows.exe" from the releases page.
  3. When prompted if you would like this app to make changes to your computer, select "yes".
  4. If you would like to install Jackett as a Windows Service, make sure the "Install as Windows Service" checkbox is filled.
  5. Once the installation has finished, check the "Launch Jackett" box to get started.
  6. Navigate your web browser to http://127.0.0.1:9117
  7. You're now ready to begin adding your trackers and using Jackett.

When installed as a service the tray icon acts as a way to open/start/stop Jackett. If you opted to not install it as a service then Jackett will run its web server from the tray tool.

Jackett can also be run from the command line if you would like to see log messages (Ensure the server isn't already running from the tray/service). This can be done by using "JackettConsole.exe" (for Command Prompt), found in the Jackett data folder: "%ProgramData%\Jackett".

Installation on Linux (AMDx64)

On most operating systems all the required dependencies will already be present. In case they are not, you can refer to this page https://github.com/dotnet/core/blob/master/Documentation/linux-prereqs.md

Install as service

A) Command to download and install the latest package and run the Jackett service:

cd /opt && f=Jackett.Binaries.LinuxAMDx64.tar.gz && sudo wget -Nc https://github.com/Jackett/Jackett/releases/latest/download/"$f" && sudo tar -xzf "$f" && sudo rm -f "$f" && cd Jackett* && sudo ./install_service_systemd.sh && systemctl status jackett.service && cd - && echo -e "\nVisit http://127.0.0.1:9117"

B) Or manually:

  1. Download and extract the latest Jackett.Binaries.LinuxAMDx64.tar.gz release from the releases page
  2. To install Jackett as a service, open a Terminal, cd to the jackett folder, and run sudo ./install_service_systemd.sh You need root permissions to install the service. The service will start on each logon. You can always stop it by running systemctl stop jackett.service from Terminal. You can start it again using systemctl start jackett.service. Logs are stored as usual under ~/.config/Jackett/log.txt and also in journalctl -u jackett.service.

  4. (Optional) To install Jackett as a service, open the Terminal and run sudo ./install_service_systemd_mono.sh You need root permissions to install the service. The service will start on each logon. You can always stop it by running systemctl stop jackett.service from Terminal. You can start it again it using systemctl start jackett.service. Logs are stored as usual under ~/.config/Jackett/log.txt and also in journalctl -u jackett.service.

If you want to run it with a user without a /home directory you need to add Environment=XDG_CONFIG_HOME=/path/to/folder to your systemd file, this folder will be used to store your config files.

Mono must be compiled with the Roslyn compiler (default), using MCS will cause "An error has occurred." errors (See #2704).

Running Jackett behind a reverse proxy

When running jackett behind a reverse proxy make sure that the original hostname of the request is passed to Jackett. If HTTPS is used also set the X-Forwarded-Proto header to "https". Don't forget to adjust the "Base path override" Jackett option accordingly.

Example config for apache:

<Location /jackett>
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    RequestHeader set X-Forwarded-Proto expr=%{REQUEST_SCHEME}
    ProxyPass http://127.0.0.1:9117
    ProxyPassReverse http://127.0.0.1:9117
</Location>

Example config for Nginx:

location /jackett {
	proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:9117;
	proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
	proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
	proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
	proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $http_host;
	proxy_redirect off;
}

Search Cache

Jackett has an internal cache to increase search speed and reduce the number of requests to torrent sites. The default values should be good for most users. If you have problems, you can reduce the TTL value in the configuration or even disable the cache. Keep in mind that you can be banned by the sites if you make a lot of requests.

  • Cache TTL (seconds): (default 2100 / 35 minutes) It indicates how long the results can remain in the cache.
  • Cache max results per indexer: (default 1000) How many results are kept in the cache for each indexer? This limit is used to limit the use of RAM. If you make many requests and you have enough memory, increase this number.

Torznab cache

If you have enabled the Jackett internal cache, but have an indexer for which you would prefer to fetch fresh results (thus ignoring the internal cache) then add the &cache=false parameter to your torznab query.

Configuring FlareSolverr

Some indexers are protected by Cloudflare or similar services and Jackett is not able to solve the challenges. For these cases, FlareSolverr has been integrated into Jackett. This service is in charge of solving the challenges and configuring Jackett with the necessary cookies. Setting up this service is optional; most indexers don't need it.

  • Install FlareSolverr service (following their instructions)
  • Configure FlareSolverr API URL in Jackett. For example: http://172.17.0.2:8191
  • It is recommended to keep the default value in FlareSolverr Max Timeout (ms)

Configuring OMDb

This feature is used as a fallback (when using the aggregate Indexer) to get the movie/series title if only the IMDB ID is provided in the request. To use it, please just request a free API key on OMDb (1,000 daily requests limit) and paste the key in Jackett
