Is there a way to query for tasks which moved on the workboard over the last X hours (1 day, one week, whatever)? I am currently triaging tasks that are in the Growth Team inbox (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/1114/) and I move them to other states (Triaged but Future, Revisit, Blocked, etc). It would be nice to have a query that could show the tasks which I've moved, so that others on my team can see which tasks have been triaged.

Query for tasks which moved on workboard
Not that I am aware of, at least not in the UI. Maybe via the API at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/conduit/method/transaction.search/. If I remember correctly, @JAufrecht (WMF) as the maintainer of Phlogiston once also ran into a similar problem.
The underlying data to support this query is in there, but there's no such report in Phabricator, as far as I know, and I never implemented exactly such a search in Phlogiston.
Invalid e-mail address provided
I recently signed up for a Phabricator account but accidentally provided an invalid address for verification. Is it possible my account could be deleted so I can restart?
Sure, done! Please try again now. :)
I don't get an email for authentification. (tried several times). Regards Partynia
Maybe you entered a wrong email address?
For sure not.
Then there's only spam filtering left, I guess.
I already looked at my spammed files - but there isn't any. Maybe it has been filtered by the providers spam filter. So what can I do? Is there any admin wo can verify my email address? I'm sysop in deWP - there it is verified.
I've triggered another welcome email. If you do not receive it then I could delete your account and you could re-register.
Yes please, let's try it that way. Delete my account and I will reregister. We will see, if it will work. Thanks
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/partynia/ deleted; feel free to re-register.
Also reregistering failed. I don't get an email for verification. :-(
The email was blocked by the providers spam blocker. I don't know why. Now its done.
Impossible to login in Phabricator
Now it is impossible to login in Phabricator. In any time a failure message is given:
Unhandled Exception ("PhutilMissingSymbolException")
Failed to load class or interface "PhabricatorPartialLoginUserLogType".
The class or interface "PhabricatorPartialLoginUserLogType" is not defined in the library map of any loaded library.
If you are not a developer, this almost always means that a library is out of date. For example, you may have upgraded "phabricator/" without upgrading "libphutil/", or vice versa. It might also mean that you need to restart Apache or PHP-FPM. Make sure all libraries are up to date and all services have been restarted.
If you are a developer and this symbol was recently added or moved, your library map may need to be rebuilt. You can rebuild the map by running "arc liberate".

Thanks for reporting this! This should be resolved, see phab:T230969
Permission to edit global herald rules
Why is power to edit global herald rules assigned to #repository admins? Seems pretty random to me.
"Can manage global rules" is set to "Phabricator admins" and to members of #Repository-Admins and #acl*phabricator.
The question is why, through. Why should be repo admins able to do that?
It's used quite often when adjusting project hierarchies (and updating related Herald rules).
Phab account deleted so the Phab account can be re-registered with a different email address
After an annoyance caused by the fact that it is necessary to indicate an e-mail address for Phabricator, I mistakenly typed a false e-mail address and confirmed the creation of the account. Can you delete my account ? My user name is AirSThib.
Thanks & Sincerely.
Hi @AirSThib, I've deleted your account. Feel free to re-register! Thanks :)
You mustn't thanks me. Is me that thanks you.
Since WP0 is gone are there any reasons that this task kept private?
Good question...thanks! :) While I don't see IP addresses in that task, the task includes other personal information (for example users who were members of non-public venues where such download links were shared), so personally I'm very reluctant to "unmask" these users by making that task public.
Do you have some specific information that you're looking for?
Getting notifications for restricted tasks
I follow the Phabricator task T228574. That task was rather promptly declined and closed since it in part involves the ongoing task T227416 which is already being dealt with. The latter is related to a security issue and therefore restricted, and I currently haven't got the necessary user permissions needed to view it. Question: even though I can't view the task itself or the data it involves, I wonder if there's any possibility for me to get an automatic notification when the task is resolved (at which point the first, non-security- but otherwise related task T228574 would also be resolved)?
The intention of a non-public task is that it's non-public, so leaking status information of a non-public task would defeat the purpose.
I'm fairly big on security myself (VPN, 2FA, PGP etc.) so I can appreciate that. However in this (and I guess all similar) cases the only information I can see about the task is the task ID and that it's restricted, and a text string saying that the task owner can view and edit the data. That's it. A search for the task ID won't reveal anything more either (and of course it shouldn't).
As far as I can tell leaking status information in these particular cases wouldn't pose a problem, since regardless of status I can't see any information regarding when the task was first issued, nor any data about what problem the task is supposed to deal with, or the task owner's user ID. As you said that information is supposed to be non-public so that's of course fine.
However, as a bureaucrat on Wikispecies I would like to be able to tell our users in the autoconfirmed user group when they no longer need to (temporarily..?) use CAPTCHA in order to add external links to reference templates and citations, per the public but closed T228574 task mentioned above. (Odd as it may seem, apparently the bug doesn't pertain to any other user group, including confirmed users.)
See https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T187051 for more discussion on this topic, and https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T187051#5191464 for an explanation of the current behavior. I don't see good reasons to change the current general behavior.
However, regarding your situation I see a problem that there is no good way to "apply" for access to a specific non-public task... Maybe you should just get subscribed to the non-public task? I've asked on that task.
Hello @Tommy Kronkvist, https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T228574 is technically resolved right now, because as you can see on https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:ListGroupRights, autoconfirmed users now again has skipcaptcha permission, and as such, the problem the task describes no longer exists.
This comment should not be deemed to be a decision if you should have access to the task, Ï just wanted to comment on the specific issue you mentioned as a reason for getting access.
@AKlapper (WMF), Martin Urbanec: Hello again and thank you both for the updates! Andre: I haven't poked around in all the pages about this, but from a quick glance I can't see how I would be able to subscribe to the non-public task. The information I get is really limited – please see the included screenshot. Is there any other way/page from where I would be able to subscribe to non-public tasks while still keeping the non-public restrictions intact?
As written, there is no good way to "apply" for access to a specific non-public task. It is intentional that you cannot subscribe to a non-public task because the task is non-public. :)
The access policy most of restricted tasks have is "members of (some acl project, such as Security) and subscribed accounts". Since you can't subscribe to a non-public task, list of subscribers is used as an ACL to let in people who should have access to this (and only this) restricted task. The sentence "Maybe you should just get subscribed to the non-public task?" just meant "Maybe we should just let you in [by subscribing you to the task]".
Thanks for explaining. The "Maybe you should just get subscribed..." sentence from AKlapper (WMF) is a bit ambiguous, suggesting that I could perhaps subscribe in some odd way, after all.
Anyway, I consider this matter resolved (-ish... :) and will settle with that. I'm one of the Wikimania 2019 volunteers so right now there's definitely more urgent tasks to handle than trying to resolve already resolved issues... :)
Nice! Please do let me know if you have any other questions in this matter. See you during Wikimania!

It might not be clear for most people that being subscribed actually allows you to access the task. Tried to clarify in my above comment.
I was just notified that my subscription had been removed from a Task on Phabricator [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T155290] and when I went to look at what was going on, I discovered that an account only created today [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Nforcer7/] has been setting Tasks to "invalid" and modifying subscriber lists left, right and centre.
What's up with that?
It was a vandal. @AKlapper (WMF) has fixed.
