Is there a way to search for tasks that were marked Resolved between a set of dates?

2
MBinder (WMF) (talkcontribs)

"Updated Before" and "Updated After" are not as useful because often closed tasks are touched again (moved, tagged, etc), and this breaks the goal of looking at only the dates that tasks were resolved.

Perhaps the "Query (Prototype)" field?

It would also be ideal to filter on a board, if possible.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Yeah, this is a pain for me too. See https://secure.phabricator.com/T4434 for a long-stalled upstream task about this and wider concerns.

Cannot verify wrong email for new phabricator account

10
Summary by AKlapper (WMF)

Solved by deleting the (unused) Phabricator account so the user can re-register with a valid email address for verification.

Hello,

When trying to sign in to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org for the first time, I typed in the wrong email address, and I don't have access to the one I entered. Hence, I cannot get or answer the "verify email address" email, nor can I change my email address, so I've locked myself out of phabricator.

Would you kindly look into the issue?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I destroyed the unused account https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/gianttrombone/ which was linked to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Gianttrombone . Please try re-registering in Phabricator. Thanks!

NikitaI (talkcontribs)

I have this trouble too.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Please provide your Phabricator user name

NikitaI (talkcontribs)

Nivalis

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

There is no such user: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Nivalis/

NikitaI (talkcontribs)

You must verify your email address to log in. You should have a new email message from Phabricator with verification instructions in your inbox (my_wrong_e-mail).

If you did not receive an email, you can click the button below to try sending another one.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

There is no such user "Nivalis" in the database. Hence there is nothing I could reset.

NikitaI (talkcontribs)

May be NikitaI?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/NikitaI/ existed and had not been used. I've deleted that account. You should be able to re-register.

I would like to create a custom form to make it easier to add tasks to a particular board.  I'm pretty sure I don't have permission to create forms because I can't find any UI for that.  Who do I ask, and where can I find the procedure for, creating new forms?  I looked in

Here's where I looked so far:

* https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator

** nothing about forms

* https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Help

** Forms entry has no details, points to the Forms help page

* https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Forms

** has information about adding forms in the UI, but not creating the forms themselves

Hello! Today I've tried to log into my Phabricator account, but it seems that it is disabled. Could you please tell me the reason of disabling and how can I restore it back?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The "Rendann" user account seems to be a sockpuppet of the user account "NoRandom". Correct?

Rendann (talkcontribs)

Not exactly. That is unused account.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

CC'ing @Jalexander-WMF who might know

Jalexander-WMF (talkcontribs)

@Rendann Sorry for the speed in getting back to you on this it's been a bit busy here and I wanted to have time to double check some things. If you want to appeal the ban I will have to ask you to send an email to me (either personally at jalexander@wikimedia.org or to my larger team at ca@wikimedia.org). That appeal will also cover your accounts (which I'm about to block). While I certainly may be wrong the evidence I have makes it appear that you're likely to be a globally banned user and at this point it's likely enough that I'm going to shut all of the accounts down. I will be happy to discuss an appeal privately if you wish to do so.

This in minor. Anyway, I'm new to Phabricator. Just made my account and linked it to my global, unified login. But the name I was given (not a nick but the main name) is an old username that I have since changed across the projects, on MediaWiki, etc. Anyone know how to make the change on Phabricator to the correct username, not as a nick...?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Could you provide the Phabricator user name that you refer to?

When I try to access to Phabricator (via the website https://phabricator.wikimedia.org), the following message is shown: "Forbidden: You don't have permission to access / on this server". I don't know what's wrong. Help please. Thanks

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi, due to abuse we unfortunately had to block certain IP ranges of (mostly Morrocan) providers a while ago. From where do you try to connect?

カビル (talkcontribs)

@AKlapper (WMF): From Algeria, a country neighboring Morocco.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Yeah, that is very likely the reason. :(

カビル (talkcontribs)

That means that the problem can't be solved for now? Thanks anyway.

I file bugs for the android app and use a common template of the following form. It would be nice to have a form configuration for reporting bugs so that I don't have to copy and paste that template each time a report a bug. Further, you could remove the **Environments observed** and use that in general for any kind of bugs and it might a helpful place to point new users to so that they would give the necessary information.

How to list things I am watching or subscribed to

3
Summary by Dcljr

The UI does actually provide links to this information, they were just overlooked. It also allows for modifying the built-in queries to list all subscribed tasks (as opposed to open-only, as is the default).

Dcljr (talkcontribs)

How do I get a list of all Phabricator projects and/or tasks I am currently subscribed to and/or watching? I can't see this info via the UI and cannot find how to do it in the documentation or via web searches (!). What am I not seeing?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

See Phabricator/Help#Using Maniphest .28Advanced Search.29 - for tasks, see the "Authored" and "Subscribed" queries under https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/query/advanced/ . For projects, see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/query/advanced/ and the "Members" search field.

Dcljr (talkcontribs)

OK, now I see my problem: When I clicked on "Tasks & Bugs" on the homepage, it brought up the "Assigned" query subpage

showing that I have not been assigned any tasks (as I am not a developer or sysadmin).

And when I clicked on "Projects & Tags", it showed a similarly empty (for the same reason) "Joined" page:

(actually, the "query/joined/" part isn't shown in the URL, but that is the page that gets displayed).

What I didn't notice is that "Authored" and "Subscribed" queries

are listed immediately below "Assigned" on the "Tasks & Bugs" page, and a "Watching" query

is listed beneath "Joined" on the "Projects & Tags" page!

And even though the "Subscribed" query only shows open tasks I'm subscribed to, I see now how I can edit the query to make it show all of them, and save it as a new query listed under "QUERIES". Cool.

So, I guess it really couldn't have been much easier! (Well, unless these queries were listed on my profile page, but I guess I have to do more configuring to make that happen…)

Thanks!
