Description of issue:
Hey guys. I am an IT administrator… and I am having issues with the “terminology” used in the “Host” line of the Remote Path Mappings box. What is meant by host? What is hosting the data (connection to the host itself, like IP or DNS name?), HOW to reach the data ON the host? (I.E. UNC or HTTP formatting?)?
Is it the download clients’ interpretation of the “Host” that the data is stored on (in this case, it’s NZBGet running on Linux, and there is no “host” in the category, only folder locations)?
To me, this is WAY overcomplicating a simple matter… why not have Sonarr just look for a string match in the “destination” property for the download client (NZBGet)? Why have a “host” line at all?
Example: Since Sonarr can access the API for NZBGet, it can access the “Destination” field, and since that could be a “remote path” match in the Remote Path Mappings for Sonarr, you could simply replace that path with the “Local Path” and voila, Sonarr, as long as the execution permissions of the account running it can access the local path, would import as needed.
I’m sure there is good reason to have the “Host” field, but I am frustrated and don’t see it’s necessity, and coming from IT, the word “Host” being used in an array of connections to and from places between applications and storage is an oversimplified word that clarification on is not to be found, no examples of the feature, etc. in Sonarr documentation. Please help.
