[Story] Editing units should show unit label instead of URIs right away.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


[Add] When I add a value with unit it should not be possible to enter non-vocabulary-repo URIs via the UI. It is only possible to select an Item from the vocabulary repo that represents the unit (via the suggester or copy-pasting a valid concept URI).

[Edit] When I edit a value with a unit:

  • Vocabulary repo concept URIs : it should never show the URI instead the label always is shown.
  • Some URI: it should show the URI and it should allow me to edit the value, but it is only possible to change the URI by selecting an item. (old Data/imports/errors)

In essence this means it is only possible to enter non vocabulary repo concept URIs via the API, but there must be a configuration that allows to reject non concept URIs of the vocabulary lookup repository.

Keep in mind:
In the future it should be possible to configure a remote vocabulary lookup repository that has the same behavior as on Wikidata (selecting, label resolving)

Jonas set Security to None.

Note that there are two unrelated (sub) tasks in this tasks description:

  1. The task itself is about blocking non-Wikidata URIs on Wikidata, when editing via the UI.
  2. Non-concept URIs should be blocked via the relevant validator, e.g. should actively be blocked, even if external URIs are allowed. I created a ticket for that but can't find it, see T102840: Disallow URIs to non-Item pages in unit/globe/calendar values.
  3. Introducing the necessary remote-lookups that are needed before a "vocabularyLookupApiUrl" setting (see can be introduced must be tracked in other tickets (probably a bigger Story, if not an Epic).

I created T111058 to split out the part of blocking other URIs.

Patches for review:


@Lydia_Pintscher Didn't see the task you created, so I created T111171: [Task] Restrict URIs for units, calendars, and globes. Sorry for the confusion, I have tried to sort it out now.
