Add helpful links to constraint reports
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When the user is presented with a constraint report from the gadget, we should try to show them a path forward if they don’t understand the constraint, or if they think the constraint is incorrect.

Story1: I am wondering what this is and want to know more in order to use it and/or not to violate workflows around it.
Story2: I don’t understand the error message fully and I want to know more about it, possibly with an examples
Story3: I can safely assume that the modeling and values are right but I still get the constraint. I want to (help to) change this.

Possible links:

  • link to the constraint statement (once imported from there – T160505)
  • link to the property talk page
  • link to the constraint item (once imported from statements)
  • link to the constraint item’s talk page (once imported from statements)
    • convert them to Flow, and add a link to create a new topic?
  • link to the constraint template (until imported from statements)

We should link to the talk page of the property as that is where issues with the constraint need to be discussed.

Lydia_Pintscher triaged this task as Normal priority.

Yes; we should give it some framing in the link text, like "Discuss this constraint" or so, in order to make it clear why the link is there.

The “discuss” link is now deployed. Should we close this task?
