Plex Integration - Why are all folders visible through the media player card no matter what permissions I have set in Plex?


I use Plex for all my media at home. I have 3 levels of access: Admin, Adult & Kids.

After I installed the Plex Media Server integration I was surprised to find that no mater what settings I use everybody who clicks the media icon on the UI card can browse every single folder not matter what the permission level.

I’ve searched the forum to see if anyone else has mentioned this but could not find anything related. Am I just missing something? I’m new to HA so maybe…


I click the browse icon in the UI:

“Kids Movies” is not password protected in Plex so should always show but “Movies” is actually behind a password and is also owned by the Administrator.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug or just not a feature?

edit: The DLNA server is not enabled on the Plex Server
