Open view for term_full_entity_id in wb_terms table in labs
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Today, I wasn't able to see the term_full_entity_id column in labs even though it's there. It would be great if you let labs have it as it will replace two other columns. The data is 100% public.

I'm dubious about exposing this column to labs tools before it is fully populated. This at least needs a warning somewhere...

We need to time this with our deployment schedule, running the migration script, and announcing changes.

This file isn't really used atm.

The place to configure the view would be

I would say to expose this we would need:

  1. @daniel to say yeah let's do this
  1. A sign off (just a comment really) from Security saying cool this really doesn't expose anything extra or untoward
  1. A DBA to ensure the data is good to go on the labsdb's
  1. A mod to the above maintain-views.yaml file
  1. An Opsen to run maintain-views update on the labsdb hosts :)

That seems like a lot but is pretty doable I swear! I'm going to stall this atm though until @daniel says it's ready to kick off the process.

92% of the populating the table has been done now and it will finish by Thursday, I think we should pick this task up.

Okay, the population is done and we can pick this up now. One thing to note that, in the file you mentioned above wb_terms is already in full_view mode so I guess there is nothing needs to be done except a round of maintain-view on labsdbs. The data is very public and we don't store any private data in it. I think I can ask Security to take a look though.

It's blocking our work

@bd808 can you have a quick look at this, please? We need to have wb_terms.term_full_entity_id added to the public view on labs. According to what @Ladsgroup said above, this should be trivial.

bd808 reassigned this task from Ladsgroup to Andrew.

wb_terms is listed as a "full view" table in maintain-views.yaml, so I think we just need to run maintain-views on the lbasdb hosts (labsdb10{01,03,09,10,11}) to make sure that the view is up to date with the underlying table structure. @Andrew can do this during his on-call rotation this week.

I've run maintain-views, but the wb_terms table isn't getting replicated at all. I don't see any evidence of filtering in the sanitarium files but I may be looking in the wrong place... @Marostegui, any ideas?

@Andrew I do see the table and the view for wikidata on labsdb1001 and labsdb1009 for instance on both, the normal db and the _p db:

Not sure if we are looking at the same thing.

ok -- I was expecting this table to be present in enwiki. If it's wikidata-specific then we're probably done. @Ladsgroup can you confirm?

I just logged in and it works as expected, we should close this now. Thank you :)

Ladsgroup closed this task as Resolved.Oct 10 2017, 8:30 PM

Thank you all for sorting this out!

@Andrew For the record: yes, wb_terms is wikidata only (and wikidata test). Generally, tables with the wb_ prefix are only for wikibase repos, while the wbc_ prefix is used for tables on wikibase clients. Note that with the SDC project, commons will become a wikibase repo, and get the respective tables.

Whitelist term_full_entity_id in wb_terms table

if we ever go back to using this it needs a complete overhaul so let's not give the illusion of up to dateness
