Manual:Contents MediaWiki database layout external user table


The external_user table tracked external user accounts, if ExternalAuth was used.

The table has been removed in MediaWiki 1.22 [1] along with the ExternalAuth functionality. AuthPlugin should be used instead.

FieldsEdit

eu_local_idEdit

Foreign key to user_id

eu_external_idEdit

Some opaque identifier provided by the external database
