Mobile friendly OAuth permission screen when logging in to Phabricator
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Originally reported by @Jaredzimmerman-WMF in Bug 73062:

when OAuth is triggered on mobile browsers, it still overlays the desktop site, and the dialog is not formatted for mobile screen.

The app owner can fix this by setting the redirect url to a clean mediawiki url (, instead of a /w/index.php?title=Special:OAuth/authorize&whatever url.
This is because mobile frontend's varnish config doesn't attempt to detect mobile devices for non-clean urls.
Resolution: --- → INVALID

Therefore, it looks like the fix needs to be done in the Phabricator side.

Is this an easy task? I'm asking to add the "Easy" tag or not.

@Qgil probably? I honestly don't know, perhaps Chris S. would want to weigh in.

It depends on what is desired here. If it's a single app that can update the url they're sending the users to, that's easy. If we want to MobileFrontend to handle this for everyone, that's a more difficult change.

I'm just talking about the MediaWiki login button at linking to a mobile friendly Oauth dialog when a mobile device is detected.

As most users will likely remain logged in on their mobile phones this seems to be an inconvenience that's not exposed very often (and I also hope that most mobile browsers allow zooming in nowadays). Hence lowering priority.
