Starting the container

docker run --rm \
    --name autoscan \
    -p 3030:3030 \
    -e PUID=1000 \
    -e PGID=1000 \
    -e UMASK=002 \
    -e TZ="Etc/UTC" \
    -e PLEX_LOGIN="" \
    -e PLEX_PASSWORD="" \
    -v /<host_folder_config>:/config \
    hotio/autoscan
version: "3.7"

services:
  autoscan:
    container_name: autoscan
    image: hotio/autoscan
    ports:
      - "3030:3030"
    environment:
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - UMASK=002
      - TZ=Etc/UTC
      - PLEX_LOGIN
      - PLEX_PASSWORD
    volumes:
      - /<host_folder_config>:/config

If PLEX_LOGIN + PLEX_PASSWORD are not empty and the file /config/plex.token does not exist, an attempt is made to get a Plex token for Autoscan.

Using a secure Plex connection

If you want to keep using secure connections within Plex, but don't wanna buy your own domain and keep the connection between Autoscan and Plex inside of their Docker network. Follow the below procedure.

Go to https://plex.tv/pms/resources.xml?includeHttps=1&X-Plex-Token=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx (replace xxxxxxxxxxxxxx with your token) and look for a url that looks like https://10-1-0-100.xxxxxxxxxxxxx.plex.direct:32400. That url can be used in your Autoscan plex target. You should however give the Plex container a static IP if you don't wanna do this every 5 minutes.
