Paperless-ngx App


Paperless-ngx is an application that manages your personal documents. With the help of a document scanner (see Scanner recommendations), paperless transforms your wieldy physical document binders into a searchable archive and provides many utilities for finding and managing your documents.

Custom config

Custom configuration can be set in /app/data/paperless.conf using the File manager. See upstream docs for various options.


Files should be uploaded to /app/data/consume using the File manager. Once uploaded, a background task scans the documents automatically.

Document retagger

To run the document retagger, open a Web Terminal and execute:

# cd /app/code/src
# python3 document_retagger -T
