How to update Custom Formats

Here I will try to explain how you can manually update Custom Formats for Sonarr v3+, With any changes from the guide or changes provided to you from other sources, without losing the scoring in your Quality Profile.

Keep in mind Custom Formats are made to fine tune your Quality Profile.
Generally, quality trumps all

How to Copy/Paste the JSON

The manual way is almost the same as the Import Custom Format way found HERE

In Sonarr

Settings => Custom Formats


Open the Custom Format you want to update

!Import To Update

Paste the Custom Format

In the empty Custom Format JSON box (1) you just paste the JSON that you got from the Custom Format Collection or provided to you from other sources followed by the Import button (2).


Save the Custom Format

After selecting the Import button you will get a screen that has all the Custom Format variables filled in correctly, all you need to do now is click on the Save button and you're done.


The Import to update existing Custom Formats replaces the existing Custom Format, so all manual changes you did to it will be lost ⚠

TRaSH Sync

This can be done also automatically with one of the TRaSH Sync Applications,
