The EventStreamConfig extension is a utility extension that provides library functions and an API endpoint for exporting event stream configuration, using the variable $wgEventStreams. It does not directly provide any user functionality; rather, it provides code used by other extensions and services. Other software that uses this extension includes:

  • The EventLogging extension - used to load configs for streams used on certain pages to dynamically configure client stream settings, like sampling rate.
  • The EventBus extension - used to figure out which event intake service a given stream should be produced to.
  • The EventGate service - used to ensure that only events of a specific schema title are allowed into a stream.
  • Mobile apps - API endpoint is used to dynamically configure client stream settings like sample rate.
