Deploy Wikidata Query Service to production[edit]

Background[edit]

The data contained in Wikidata is vast, and being able to run arbitrary queries on that data is a natural and exciting application. To that end, Magnus Manske created Wikidata Query, which allows one to run queries on Wikidata. However, Wikidata Query is a proof of concept, and in order to deliver a more scalable query system, the Wikidata Query Service was built and is running in beta at https://searchdata.wmflabs.org.

Objective[edit]

Allow users on our cluster to run arbitrary queries on the data contained in Wikidata by deploying the Wikidata Query Service.

Key results[edit]

The key results that will evaluate the success of this work are:

  • Wikidata Query Service is deployed and usable from within our cluster.
  • Metrics for the usage of Wikidata Query Service will appear on the Discovery Department dashboards.
