Implement an accurate and easy to understand status page for all wikis
Open, MediumPublic


In T199816 we deprecated, and replaced it with a static HTML page that points users to a grafana dashboard. This is a reasonable intermediate step, but is not a particularly user-friendly way to indicate when a particular wiki, group of wikis, or partial functionality is unavailable.

We should implement a status page that gives users information about when some/all functionality is impacted; and displays that information in a user-friendly and easy to understand way. Ease of use and accuracy are very important and should be taken into account by any implementation. (These were the biggest issues with the prior Watchmouse implementation, and resulted in that implementation being removed.)

I think a good example we could build off of would be as it has the basics and explains why an issue happens. We could easily expand something like this to fit the needs of Wikimedia. Discord uses an external provider, however the look of the page itself is quite easy to understand.
