Short Description
Requests platform for plex and modified with FreeNAS Corral tags
Full Description

The team brings you another container release featuring easy user mapping and community support. Find us for support at:

  • IRC on freenode at
  • Podcast covers everything to do with getting the most from your Linux Server plus a focus on all things Docker and containerisation!


So what is Ombi you ask!?

Ombi allows you to host your own Plex Request and user management system.

If you are sharing your Plex server with other users, allow them to request new content using an easy to manage interface!

Manage all your requests for Movies and TV with ease, leave notes for the user and get notification when a user requests something.

Allow your users to post issues against their requests so you know there is a problem with the audio etc.

Even automatically sent them weekly newsletters of new content that has been added to your Plex server!


docker create \
    --name=ombi \
    -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \
    -v <path to data>:/config \
    -e PGID=<gid> -e PUID=<uid>  \
    -p 3579:3579 \


The parameters are split into two halves, separated by a colon, the left hand side representing the host and the right the container side. For example with a port -p external:internal - what this shows is the port mapping from internal to external of the container. So -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 http://192.168.x.x:8080 would show you what's running INSIDE the container on port 80.

  • -p 3579 - the port(s)
  • -v /etc/localtime for timesync - optional
  • -v /config - where ombi should store its config files
  • -e PGID for GroupID - see below for explanation
  • -e PUID for UserID - see below for explanation

It is based on ubuntu xenial with s6 overlay, for shell access whilst the container is running do docker exec -it ombi /bin/bash.

User / Group Identifiers

Sometimes when using data volumes (-v flags) permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container. We avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID. Ensure the data volume directory on the host is owned by the same user you specify and it will "just work" ™.

In this instance PUID=1001 and PGID=1001. To find yours use id user as below:

  $ id <dockeruser>
      uid=1001(dockeruser) gid=1001(dockergroup) groups=1001(dockergroup)

Setting up the application

Webui is at <your-ip>:3579, Follow the setup wizard on initial install. Then configure the required services.


  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime docker logs -f ombi.
  • Shell access whilst the container is running: docker exec -it ombi /bin/bash

  • container version number

docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' ombi

  • image version number

docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' linuxserver/ombi
