Claim your Plex Server Through Portainer

1. Head over to your Portainer service at http://ipv4:9000/

2. Open the Plex container and press Duplicate/Edit

3. Browse to the bottom and press Env

4. Press add environment variable

5. In a new tab, go here and login using the details of the Plex Account that will own the server: https://plex.tv/claim

6. Press Copy to Clipboard button. If you don't, the code will not be copied properly! Also, notice the code is valid only for 4 minutes! Head back to Portainer and do the following: In "Name" write "PLEX_CLAIM" and in "Value" you can paste the code you copied earlier. Notice that you need to paste the whole thing, including the "claim-" part!

7. Press Deploy Container and wait until the container is Healthy. You can press Replace, don't worry...



8. After the container is healthy, head over to https://app.plex.tv/ and login with the same account as the one for the Plex Token! Then you should see your server under the server list!

I'm on a headless server (Ubuntu) and I'm trying to set up Plex through Portainer. How would I go about that, I see this is how to claim it using Portainer but I can't find anything on how to setup using Portainer

I'm not using GD or anything it's all on a local host and local network
Your server will have an ip address, use it and add :9000 to the end to access Portainer as per the guide/photo's above. As to the wiki link, unless you are on a mobile device that may use the mobile version of the site, the wiki is always accessible from the top menu bar, just click 'WIKI' :)

This is a huge find, Admin! I had a REALLY hard time in the past with getting the claim setup on a remote server the first time (seems like a million years ago but is more like a year) and this makes it much more certain and have more reliable results. Good work!!

It's rarely needed now, but was useful back in the day. The main issue tends to be people not reading the expiry time on the claim code.
