Access: $wgBotPasswordsCluster
Cluster name for the bot_passwords table
Introduced in version:1.27.0
Removed in version:still in use
Allowed values:(string/boolean)
Default value:false

Details[edit]

Define the cluster name for the bot_passwords table for use with the new bot authentication system. If set to "false", the regular cluster will be used. Note that $wgEnableBotPasswords must be set to "true" (which is the default) for this to work.

The goal of this variable is to support cross-wiki sharing of bot passwords: the bot_passwords table references users by their central IDs so only one instance of the table should exist in the whole wikifarm.

This configuration parameter was introduced in Gerrit change 259066 (task T121113).
