Patrolling log events mark revisions as patrolled.

DatabaseEdit

Configuration settingsEdit

Every user with the "patrol" permission is able to review article changes. By default, only the "sysop" (admin) group has this permission. You can optionally add "patrol" to an additional group:

$wgGroupPermissions['team']['patrol'] = true;

Users with the "autopatrol" permission have their changes automatically marked as patrolled. The below configuration means that changes made by users in the "sysop", "bot", and "team" groups are automatically reviewed:

$wgGroupPermissions['bot']['autopatrol'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['autopatrol'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['team']['autopatrol'] = true;

You can also let a certain group of users only see the unpatrolled edit marks, by giving them the "patrolmarks" permission. Configuration in the example below means that everyone (even unregistered users) will be able to see the unpatrolled edit marks.

$wgGroupPermissions['*']['patrolmarks'] = true;


If you change your configuration or permissions, and you don't see what you expect in RecentChanges, you probably need to run the 'Rebuildrecentchanges.php ' maintenance script.

APIEdit

Patrol log events have a patrol child element, e.g. <patrol cur="12" prev="0" auto="1" />
