Plex SSO

Plex Single Sign On


If you are using Plex as the main driving factor for your Organizr instance, you will want to enable Plex as backend choice to login via Plex credentials.

Settings / System Settings / Main / Authentication

Change the Authentication type to Organizr DB + Backend. Choose Plex as the Authentication Backend. Use the Retrieve button to fill in the Plex Token and Plex Machine.

The other two toggles are optional:



Enable Plex oAuth

This will bring up a Plex login screen that will flow credentials through

Strict Plex Friends

Enabling this option will only allow people from your friends list that have access to the server that you selected for Plex Machine

Now that Plex is setup to be the backend for Organizr, you can head over to the SSO section for Plex

Settings / System Settings / Single Sign-On / Plex

If Plex account was made using Facebook/Google - YOU HAVE TO USE OAUTH to sign in

Plex SSO will only work with Plex reverse proxied as a subdirectory and not as a subdomain. Fill out the Plex Token and Plex Machine (They should already be filled in if you did the above step). You can use the retrieve buttons to fill these out. Toggle the enabled switch to turn it on.



Plex Token

Token to authenticate with Plex Servers

Plex Machine

Plex Machine ID for your specific server

Admin Username

Username or Email for Organizr and Plex Admin account


Enable Plex SSO

If not using Plex OAuth - For Admin Account - Make sure passwords match in Organizr and Plex

Plex SSO doesn't work if Plex Reverse Proxy is a subdomain - It must be on the same domain as Organizr

Plex Reverse Proxy (Sub-Directory)

location /plex/ {
  proxy_pass http://ip-of-plex:32400/;
  include /path/to/proxy.conf;
if ($http_referer ~ /plex/) {
  rewrite ^/web/(.*) /plex/web/$1? redirect;
