Aklapper renamed this task from mw1.27#wmf13 update breaks GlobalReplace tool to mw1.27#wmf13 update breaks GlobalReplace: "result: WrongToken".Feb 12 2016, 10:37 AM
Aklapper triaged this task as High priority.
Aklapper set Security to None.

This might be due to the new SessionManager introduced with wmf.13 this week ( T123451 ).

Another possibility is the way you authenticate is no more possible and needs to be altered. But honestly I have no idea how the auth token words

Can you give us the login used and some date/time at which errors got reported? That will help investigate in the logs.

The page you linked (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:GlobalReplace#Bugs) suggests reporting bugs at https://github.com/Commonists/GlobalReplace/issues/new, it would be good to forward this report there maybe.

Worked fine when I tried it just now, with version 0.6.3.

Anomie claimed this task.

Kopiersperre confirmed on IRC that GlobalReplace 0.6.3 works for them too, so I'm going to close this since it seems to have been a bug in the tool rather than anything in MediaWiki.
