[Story] Marking external mismatches as exceptions
Closed, InvalidPublic


As an editor, I want to be able to mark external mismatches as exceptions to indicate that the Wikidata value is correct.

Entry points to toggle exceptions:

  • API
  • Special Page External Validation
  • Common Special Page (when implemented, see T110039)
  • Make feature accessible only for limited users (e.g., autoconfirmed group)

Exception table:

  • Statement GUID of statement that caused the external mismatch as key
  • [Maybe] additional information like the date it was introduced, ...

Displaying violations:

  • Mismatches that were marked as exceptions should be displayed as one
  • Need to check if a mismatch has an exception in the table
  • Show exceptions in API result

[Maybe] renaming:

  • "Exception" indicates that a rule was violated (like for constraints)
  • Here, it indicates that the Wikidata value is correct
  • If not internal, maybe rename it in the user interface for more clarity

For further information, marking mismatches as exceptions is implemented on the abandoned branch (old master branch):
