This is planned to be added with more tight client integration.

I'm thinking of adding a few options:

1) remove torrent immediately after postproc 2) remove torrent after seedratio is me 3) in two cases above, only pause torrent, do not remove it

| gborri commented about 6 years ago

Hello WebSpider, the seeding time or seeding ratio is guaranteed by the client in fact postprocess can handle the file after that time. The request is to remove the item from torrent cliente not to pause it. The purpose is to not remove it manually.

I handle this now using a plugin for deluge called 'AutoRemovePlus' which removes the torrent immediately after it finishes downloading (per my configuration). But I can see this being useful. Sickrage knows more about what is going on with a download and therefore it makes sense for it to be in control of its state. However the number of clients out there, and API support, might make people feel pressured to use a client they don't generally prefer. Though it would be nice to get a foundation framework started to support client api calls and tracking

Hello @WebSpider, Please also add option: 4) remove torrent after seedratio only if provider contains [list of strings], This will differentiate between free trackers and ratio trackers, allowing to remove immediately from free, and keep sharing until seedratio for the ratio ones.

I think important for the ratio site's is to have an option to remove after X period (days / hours). Perhaps we can connect this feature to the tracker. So f.e. for TPB we remove immediate, for BTN we remove after 4 days.

I think the way CouchPotato works is the same desired functionality here wanted. Every torrent has a specific ratio and/or time. If not defaults are used, but still set in the torrent. This can be checked by API. At least for Transmission

For full automation also download file needs to be deleted. I often also find myself checking and rechecking both download and root dir before manually deleting torrent. I suggest to be able to use the processing method "move" WHILE seeding by updating the location and name afterwards via the torrent clients api. Seems possible with at least Transmission. This way a basic functionality works independently of whether you choose to continue to seed or not in your client.

Personally would find being able to manage how long things are seeding for based on whether they're from a ratio based tracker or not very useful. For example, if something is downloaded from ratio site then i want to seed it for as long as possible and symlink those files, if not then don't seed and move files to media folders instead. Also would be more useful for large season packs as well.
