Return false to reject an otherwise usable cached value from the Parser cache.
Define function:
public static function onRejectParserCacheValue( $parserOutput, $wikiPage, $parserOptions ) { ... }
Attach hook: In extension.json:
	"Hooks": {
		"RejectParserCacheValue": "MediaWiki\\Extension\\MyExtension\\Hooks::onRejectParserCacheValue"
Called from: File(s): parser/ParserCache.php
Function(s): get
Interface: RejectParserCacheValueHook.php

For more information about attaching hooks, see Manual:Hooks .
For examples of extensions using this hook, see Category:RejectParserCacheValue extensions.


Warning Warning: Misuse of this hook can effectively disable the parser cache, with serious consequences for high-traffic installations. Use with extreme care.

This hook allows extensions to reject an otherwise-successful parser cache lookup. The intent is to allow extensions to manage the eviction of archaic HTML output from the cache.

Return true or no return value to continue, or false to reject an otherwise usable cached value from the Parser cache.

Use Case[edit]

See patch 587264 in gerrit for an example of the use of this hook in WMF production to mitigate an issue which caused parser cache corruption. Searching for RejectParserCache in the mediawiki-config repository using git log -SRejectParserCache or equivalent will list other examples of use in WMF production. See T296425 for equivalent code to manage stored content stored in RESTBase.
