The AccountAudit extension helps to determine account activity for the final SUL migration and account unification. It will also be used by the Editor Engagement teams to determine whether an account has been abandoned.

The extensions does not create any new SpecialPages nor change any output to users. Currently only most recent login by a user on a wiki is recorded using the UserLoginComplete hook.


The extension can be retrieved directly from Git [?]:

  • Browse code
  • Some extensions have tags for stable releases.
  • Each branch is associated with a past MediaWiki release. There is also a "master" branch containing the latest alpha version (might require an alpha version of MediaWiki).

Extract the snapshot and place it in the extensions/AccountAudit/ directory of your MediaWiki installation.

If you are familiar with git and have shell access to your server, you can also obtain the extension as follows:

cd extensions/
git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/p/mediawiki/extensions/AccountAudit.git


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called AccountAudit in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'AccountAudit' );
  • YesY Done - Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

To users running MediaWiki 1.24 or earlier:

The instructions above describe the new way of installing extensions using wfLoadExtension(), since MediaWiki 1.25. If you need to install this extension in earlier versions, instead of wfLoadExtension( 'AccountAudit' );, you need to use:

require_once "$IP/extensions/AccountAudit/AccountAudit.php";
