Bazarr is a companion application to Sonarr and Radarr. It can manage and download subtitles based on your requirements. You define your preferences by TV show or movie and Bazarr takes care of everything for you.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/bazarr should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:










Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.


docker create \
--name=bazarr \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-e UMASK_SET=022 `#optional` \
-p 6767:6767 \
-v </path/to/bazarr/config>:/config \
-v </path/to/movies>:/movies \
-v </path/to/tv>:/tv \
--restart unless-stopped \

You can choose between ,using tags, various branch versions of bazarr, no tag is required to remain on the main branch. Add one of the tags, if required, to the linuxserver/bazarr line of the run/create command in the following format, linuxserver/bazarr:development The development tag will be the latest commit in the development branch of bazarr. HOWEVER , USE THE DEVELOPMENT BRANCH AT YOUR OWN PERIL !!!!!!!!!


Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

version: "2.1"
image: linuxserver/bazarr
container_name: bazarr
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- TZ=Europe/London
- UMASK_SET=022 #optional
- </path/to/bazarr/config>:/config
- </path/to/movies>:/movies
- </path/to/tv>:/tv
- 6767:6767
restart: unless-stopped


Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)




Allows HTTP access to the internal webserver.

Environment Variables (-e)




for UserID - see below for explanation


for GroupID - see below for explanation


Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London


control permissions of files and directories created by Bazarr

Volume Mappings (-v)




Bazarr data


Location of your movies


Location of your TV Shows

Environment variables from files (Docker secrets)

You can set any environment variable from a file by using a special prepend FILE__.

As an example:

-e FILE__PASSWORD=/run/secrets/mysecretpassword

Will set the environment variable PASSWORD based on the contents of the /run/secrets/mysecretpassword file.

Umask for running applications

For all of our images we provide the ability to override the default umask settings for services started within the containers using the optional -e UMASK=022 setting. Keep in mind umask is not chmod it subtracts from permissions based on it's value it does not add. Please read up here before asking for support.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

$ id username
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

  • Once running the URL will be http://<host-ip>:6767.

  • You must complete all the setup parameters in the webui before you can save the config.

Docker Mods

Docker Mods

We publish various Docker Mods to enable additional functionality within the containers. The list of Mods available for this image (if any) can be accessed via the dynamic badge above.

Support Info

  • Shell access whilst the container is running:

    • docker exec -it bazarr /bin/bash

  • To monitor the logs of the container in realtime:

    • docker logs -f bazarr

  • Container version number

    • docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' bazarr
