Herald: How to see what tags have been most impacted by a rule?

2
MBinder (WMF) (talkcontribs)
AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hmm, I don't think the database saves which exact condition of a single Herald rule triggered the action, but I'd need to dig more into the DB scheme to know for sure. According to SELECT COUNT(*) FROM herald_ruleapplied WHERE ruleID = 26; that rule has been triggered 3278 times so far.

Entered wrong email, can someone delete my account so I can relink?

Creating a user's board and username change request

5
TheReadOnly (talkcontribs)

Hello Team/SRE

I have two requests.

  1. Can a user/community volunteer create their own board without creating a project / team? For example, https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/5586/ or https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/5584/ Because, Tracking actions with just my username tags would be a lot helpful on phab rather than tracking this on my page as the page will get cumbersome sooner than later when I add tasks further.
  2. As I mostly see the username change requests on this discussions page, can you please change my username from "TheReadOnly" to "SDineshKumar" or "SDK" on MW.org? I think reflects in Phab automagically.

Thank you

SDK

@TheReadOnly Hi, one Phabricator workboard is always bound to one Phabricator project tag, and vice versa. The username change requests on this Phabricator Help talk page refer to changing usernames in Phabricator itself.

TheReadOnly (talkcontribs)

Thanks AKlapper. So, Do you mean the following ?

  1. So I need to create a project with my own name to have a board for myself. Am I right with this? If so, Can I create a board with my username? Hopefully, that wouldn't collide with the work and board of existing users and their tags and other than just adding tags to them.
  2. On username stuff, So to change my user name on Phab, Can I remove my MediaWiki Account and add a new account(needs creation) that says "SDineshKumar" as my username and would that make Phab to use it as my username rather than "TheReadOnly". This change is not priority for me. But, I feel the need to understand the systems better and unify the username so as to create confusion.

"Click the sunflower button that says "Login or Register - MediaWiki". There is no such button, and no indication what a "sunflower" button is anyway. ~~~~

Pppery (talkcontribs)

Where are you seeing this? The text "sunflower button" does not appear on the current page, and was removed in a series of edits in January 2021.

BeenAroundAWhile (talkcontribs)

I can't find it. This was the Talk page for wherever I was before. I'm just trying to sign up for Phabricator. Thanks. ~~~~

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

If something is blocking you from creating your Phabricator account, then please provide information what exactly is blocking you and where and after which steps. Thanks!

BeenAroundAWhile (talkcontribs)

OK. No problem. I created a page. Thanks so much. ~~~~

VisbyStar (talkcontribs)

Hi! Is it possible to change user name from SwedishMuseum to VisbyStar? I think it would be better and less confusing if I use the same name as in the other Wiki platforms! Best regards VisbyStar

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@VisbyStar Hi, this is not possible as another user already has the username "VisbyStar" on Phabricator.

VisbyStar (talkcontribs)

Aha O.K! Yes I'am the same "Tore Danielsson" that created "VisbyStar". Seems that I did not understood how things worked then (having changed my username back to VisbyStar)! I will see if I find my password. Thanks for checking up! Best regards Tore

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
VisbyStar (talkcontribs)

Yes, I started with VisbyStar and then created "Tore Danielsson (RU)" when working in a governmental organisation and then changed to "Tore Danielsson" at the end of that employment. But went back to the more "freely" not so obvious VisbyStar. Sorry for the confusion!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

No problem! I have deleted the unused account and renamed your used account.

VisbyStar (talkcontribs)

Great! and Thank you very much!

Sojol Rana (talkcontribs)

My WP username was renamed SojolRana to Sojol Rana, but my Phabricator username remain same. Kindly rename my Phabricator username SojolRana to Sojol Rana please.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
Sojol Rana (talkcontribs)

Correction: I mean change the username from SojolRana to Sojol_Rana


I found this on the link you provided,

  • To change your Phabricator username, please add a note on Talk:Phabricator/Help and include a link to your Phabricator profile.

How to filter tasks by user who appears in either "Assigned to" or "Other Assignee"?

4
KZimmerman (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I want to create a filter that shows all open tasks for a team member who is either “Assigned to” the task OR is tagged as “Other Assignee”. I would like to be able to filter tasks on our team's board the board by team member with just a quick click (for checking during board refinement or when reviewing work together). I previously created a list of links to open tasks filtered by team member here: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/3313/ (but those links only query the "Assigned to" field).

Is it possible to create a single filter in Phabricator that queries whether a user is in EITHER "Assigned to" OR "Other Assignee"?

Thanks!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I don't know who created the "Other Assignee" custom field or where it was discussed (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T283746#7118003). WMF Release Engineering might know more, as I think it started as a "fallback train conductor" custom field. Generally speaking, custom fields are not as supported as the standard "Assigned To" field, plus I'm afraid that querying two separate fields (as an "OR") on a value in general is not supported. :-/

KZimmerman (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thanks @AKlapper (WMF) - so it sounds like I'm asking for the (currently) impossible. Also, I'll keep in mind that "Other Assignee" is not fully supported.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

(Just for the records though this wasn't asked: One can also "Group by Owner" in the workboard filter dropdown ("Natural", "Group by Priority", etc) itself, to still see all tasks on the board at once.)

Return to "Phabricator/Help" page.
