Testing a search

Radarr

Just like the indexer/tracker test above, when you trigger a search while at Debug or Trace level logging, you can get the URL used from the log files. While testing, it is best to use as narrow a search as possible. A manual search is good because it is specific and you can see the results in the UI while examining the logs.

In this test, you’ll be looking for obvious errors and running some simple tests. You can see the search used the url "https://api.nzbgeek.info/api?t=movie&cat=2000&apikey=(removed)&q=O+Brother+Where+Art+Thou, which you can try yourself in a browser after replacing (removed) with your apikey for that indexer. Does it work? Do you see the expected results? In that URL, you can see that it set specific categories with 2000, so if you’re not seeing expected results, this is one likely reason. If the movie isn’t properly categorized on the indexer, it will need to be fixed. Look at Manual Search XML Output below to see an example of a working query’s output. {{#spoiler:show=Manual Search XML Output|hide=Click here to Close|

You can see the search used the url https://api.nzbgeek.info/api?t=tvsearch&cat=5030,5040,5045,5080&extended=1&apikey=(removed)&offset=0&limit=100&tvdbid=354629&season=1&ep=1, which you can try yourself in a browser after replacing (removed) with your apikey for that indexer. Does it work? Do you see the expected results? Does this FAQ entry apply? In that URL, you can see that it set specific categories with cat=5030,5040,5045,5080, so if you’re not seeing expected results, this is one likely reason. You can also see that it searched by tvdbid with tvdbid=354629, so if the episode isn’t properly categorized on the indexer, it will need to be fixed. You can also see that it searches by specific season and episode with season=1 and ep=1, so if that isn’t correct on the indexer, you won’t see those results. Look at Manual Search XML Output below to see an example of a working query’s output.

Wrong show type

The show type is another cause of poor search results. Most shows should be Standard. For daily shows which are typically released with a date, Daily should be used. Finally, there is anime where using Anime is usually right, but sometimes Standard can work better, so try the other one if you’re having issues.

Please note that if the series type is set to anime and none of your enabled indexers have any anime categories configured then it effectively skips the indexer and may appear that it is not searching.
