Delete Phabricator account
Hi, we do not delete Phabricator accounts, and we don't know which is exact account is meant.
Edit form configuration in Phab
I want to be able to edit an old form that belongs to the CRS team, as this is going to be canceled for requests, and I'd like to add a message with the redirect email. This is the form: ⚓ CommRel Support Request (wikimedia.org)
And while I tried, I noticed I didn't have the right to do so; is it possible to have the rights to be able to edit it?
Please reset EMagallanes
Hi, I also have lost my phabricator 2FA access, particularly my security access. Can you please assist/let me know if I need to add anything to my request. :)
@EMagallanes (WMF) Hi, we don't have a great process in place for this situation. Safest would be to set up a video call with another person that we both know how they look like. Though I'm not sure in this case who that could be. Maybe ths should move to a private internal Slack conversation before this becomes a thread discussing names?
For the records, the underlying problem is https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T306708
List Automation Rules and Bots for a board
I'd like to try and find a way to list all automation rules and bots relying on a specific work board for various actions, but I don't know where to start. Any advice, tips or tricks?
Hi @ItamarWMDE, when it comes to boards (means: columns) themselves there can be workboard triggers. The easiest way is probably to visit the workboard in the web browser and check for each column if its icon with three cogs in the column header is "active" (black color instead of grey) which means that there is a trigger defined.
If you refer to adding/removing project tags to/from tasks (one project tag has one workboard), there might be Herald rules in place. The UI does not offer any way to get a list of Herald rules related to a certain project tag (either rule conditions or rule actions) but I might be able to run a SQL query on the database if you provide a link to a certain project tag. Also, as running Herald rules can be expensive, at some point some activity was outsourced into https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Maintenance_bot/ which has its code public (see that bot account's profile page in Phabricator for more info).
Bots interact via the Phabricator Conduit API and their source code is located outside of Phabricator so there's no "central" way to check what exactly they are doing. Going to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/feed/ and selecting "Edit Query" and setting the corresponding project tag in the "Include Projects" field provides you a list of latest interactions in a project but I am not aware of any way to filter those interactions for bot accounts only.
If you need more specific info (or want me to look into a specific project tag), please tell! Happy to help. :)
Thank you for the prompt reply and of the tips! I'll look into column triggers and potentially maintenance bot rules. But might need further assistance for Herlad rules. The project is https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/3532/ (wdwb-tech).
Hi @AKlapper (WMF), any news on herald rules that involve the `wdwb-tech` board?
Ah perfect! Thank you for all your assistance!
Hello Again 👋 I actually have a followup to this thread. I'd like to make some changes to H380, but I don't have sufficient rights, any advice on how to proceed?
100% Thank you @AKlapper (WMF)!
Use the calender app to schedule task creation
I know this is a long-shot, but thought it might be worthwhile asking anyhow. Is there a clever way to use the Calendar and potentially triggers or Herald so that when an event time arrives, it creates a task?
Some context: I'm trying to schedule recurring task creation for some common chores we have to do in our team, and so far the only way I can think of is to use the API and create a bot, but that seems like potentially too much overhead for now.
Thank you in advance!
@ItamarWMDE Hi, this isn't possible currently. The Calendar application never received enough development (e.g. also to show due dates of tasks assigned to someone or such).
The only unresolved task I'm aware of was https://secure.phabricator.com/T6491 in previous upstream about filter rules to run at certain points. Feel free to file a feature request tagged with "Phabricator (Upstream)" but it's unlikely that this will get attention soon.
Cool, thank you so much :) I'll create a bot request in the coming days
Please, kindly help change my username from "199005" to "RukayatIssa" Thank you so much.

Please reset DannyS712 phab 2FA
I lost my access. T&S will be along shortly to confirm that this is a legitimate request
I can confirm the legitimacy of this request. Thanks.
Archiving the MediaWiki-Containers project
Thanks for catching that! Done.
Could my username be renamed from "Wei4Green" to "Wei4Earth", please? Thank you.
Can my Phabricator account Samwalton9 be renamed to Samwalton9-WMF? I'd like to create a new one from my volunteer account to continue drawing a clearer line between WMF and personal activities!
