Add ability to configure the web service endpoint in the IDS extension
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Right now the service endpoint "https://tools.wmflabs.org/idsgen/" is hard-coded into the IDS extension.

It should instead be configurable, via an entry in LocalSettings.php.

Or maybe Google-Code-In-2016 (who would mentor this)?

Hi , about IDS extension,I think that it can be changed to render-server-path set-able in Localsetting.php. I am a poor php guy,but I guess it might be a easy task?

@Aklapper: Yes, this is an easy task. @Samwilson could potentially be a mentor on it if a volunteer wanted to pick it up.

Well, we will only find out "if a volunteer wanted to pick it up" by actually making it available, not the other way round. :)
@Samwilson?

Removing GCI-Tag, as the task was finished outside of GCI :) Thanks a lot for the fix!

@Florian well, it was actually done for GCI :)

Ha! Interesting :P I deleted a task that mentioned this phab task, but it seems, that this was just a duplicate :) Sorry for the confusion! :)
