Phabricator/Help/Task Creation URL

From MediaWiki.org
Jump to: navigation, search

Project wikipages which offer a "Report a bug in Phabricator" link can pass numerous values via URL parameters appended to the generic task creation link such as:

  • projects=project-name1,project-name2
  • assign=username
  • title=Title%20of%20task
  • description=Description%20of%20task
  • template=XXXX
  • priority=[100, 90, 80, 50, 25, 10]
  • parent=[######] (without a 'T')

Prefix your properties with "?" and use "&" to chain properties together.

Example: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/task/edit/form/1/?projects=Beta-Feature&title=Hovercards would create a new task with the tag "Beta-Feature" and prefix the title with "Hovercards".

Parameters which are not exposed in the default task creation form are ignored. Some users with specific permissions could use the advanced form under https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/task/edit/form/3/ instead.

See also upstream documentation on prefilling fields and the list of available HTTP parameters when creating a task.

The Phabulous tool hosted on Toolforge can be used to make generating complex prefill links easier. It provides an HTML form much like the Phabricator task creation form itself and outputs a well formed and properly encoded URL suitable for pasting.
