"Wildcards" for Herald?

4
MBinder (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Is it possible to set a criteria in Herald that says "look for X project, and all Milestones thereof"?

For instance, a team wants to have weekly Milestones on their backlog, and they use a separate board for their Kanban. In a process in which all Kanban tasks need to be reflected on the backlog (in case, say, someone added a brand new task to the Kanban, but skipped the backlog triage process) for one-source-of-truth, Herald can look for those stragglers. Example: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/H269

With Milestones, I'm under the impression that Phabricator treats each as its own project, so Herald has to be updated for each Milestone.

Example: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/H246

Updating Herald for weekly Milestones isn't hard, but it's a little tedious, and it adds weakness to the process (e.g. the changes have to be requested; or, each change to the Herald is a risk in and of itself should a mistake occur). It would be useful to be able to tell Herald to look for subprojects of a project, to automate this.

Naturally, I have already commented on, subscribed to, and flagged that ticket! I suppose it's just tradition at this point to forget and ask on a talk page, too... :)

Hi, done!

Ostrzyciel (talkcontribs)

Can you change my Phabricator username from Magwac to Ostrzyciel (the same as on mediawiki.org)? Ostrzyciel is the username I use everywhere and Magwac was an old nick that I changed on Wikimedia some time ago.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Sure! Done now.

Something not right with process?

Hello, I believe that a ticket of mine somehow was forgotten, because after two months it wasn't even triaged: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T241530

Either there is a problem in the process itself, or triagers lacking. In the latter case, how do I apply for that job?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@SCIdude Hi, thanks for the comment! As far as I know QuickStatements has one volunteer developer, and it is up to each person how they spend their time. Indeed that can sometimes mean that nobody looks at tickets for a while, which I'd consider normal in free software projects. Also see Bug management/Development prioritization for more background.

I changed from Bazj (via for (;;) ) to Cabayi in 2016. I'd like the same username across the wikisphere. Please rename. Thanks, Cabayi (talk) 13:33, 29 February 2020 (UTC)

Sure! Done. :)

For a few weeks now (10 - 12) I have not been able to upload pictures to Wikimedia Commons. I tried to find a solution to the problem in the forum for questions, but I also didn't find anything. It is increasingly suspected that the error is due to the Upload Wizard, which has now become very unstable. If nothing changes in the incorrect upload in the foreseeable future, many users will surely leave Wikimedia Commons.

Greetings in the hope that the upload error will be fixed soon

By asking. :) Done!

Awkwafaba (talkcontribs)

I recently changed my global username on the wikis, how do I update my phabricator username to match? I only seem to be able to update the AKA.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

How to rollback "vandalism" on Phabricator?

2
Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

If I wanted to revert recent actions of a certain user to a task, how I can do it? A newbie blanked a whole task when closing it. I was fixing their actions manually. But my internet connection was not good at that time, thankfully another user readded the description and fixed the rest. Is there any way to do it in one click? Members of #Triagers can perform batch edits on Phabricator, can this permission be used?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Apart from phab:D1145 there is no "single-click" UI way to revert a user's actions.

How to not get notifications from bots

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

I want to ignore notifications from user accounts flagged with bot status. I don't find notifications from ReleaseTaggerBot, Maintenance_bot interesting. How can I do that?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

I was talking about web notifications. Looks like I can't do it. Is this tracked somewhere or should I create a task?

Video tutorials on page

Zoranzoki21 (talkcontribs)

I looked at some video tutorials on this page, and looks like they're very old and shows old Phabricator interface. Maybe we should make new, fresh up-to-date videos?

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

Good idea. I unfortunately don't have enough time because of real life. But I appreciate the idea of making helpful videos. You have my full Support.

Zoranzoki21 (talkcontribs)

I also don't have enough time because of real life, so I can't record videos :)


It's reason why I asked here. Thanks!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Sure. It's a wiki, so anyone can edit anything.
