Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&prop=mapdata&titles=User:Smalyshev_(WMF)/Govmap&format=json returns invalid data - instead of giving ExternalData as service+url object, it returns original ExternalData. Need to fix asap. It's for this page.

It seems this is a difference between purge/null edit and doing a real edit. The null edit does not update page properties to the new data. This might be the same as T133495

Yurik lowered the priority of this task from High to Low.

Purging with &forcelinkupdate=1 seems to have done the trick. Lowering priority and unassigning, no need to figure it right away, but it would be great to solve it in the longer term (e.g. with T119043)

closing it as inactionable at this point, this is a fundamental problem with the pageprops refresh
