Missing parameter 'badge' of api.php?action=querylist=querypage&qppage=PagesWithBadges
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In the web interface of Special:PagesWithBadges, it will send a parameter 'badge' to find what page is it.

But it does not show it on the Special:ApiSandbox.

And it is useless with a error msg '<error code="internal_api_error_BadMethodCallException" info="[WDfVdgpAIEAAABr-n20AAAAM] Exception Caught: Call to a member function getSerialization() on a non-object (null)"/>',even though I send the parameter in the request of api.php.

ApiQueryQueryPage doesn't support random special pages' parameters. Since it looks like this query page is useless without this parameter, Wikibase should add it to $wgAPIUselessQueryPages.

Ok. Does it mean that ApiQueryQueryPage doesn't support querying's special pages with parameters?
Maybe two solution we can use.

  1. make api.php?action=querylist=querypage support parameters. Not easy but solve it thoroughly.
  2. remove qppage=PagesWithBadges from api.php?action=querylist=querypage. Easy, Fastest, and at lease I have two other way find the it.(To find FA and GA, I can do it with action=query&list=categorymembers, and action=query&list=pageswithprop&pwppropname=wikibase-badge-Q17437796)

Which one?
