Assuming we should also track how often deletions fail, maybe in a separate graph.

Needs the grafana panel.

WMDE-Fisch changed the point value for this task from 3 to 1.

I'm concerned that we might not be recording failures, instead the control flow hits the outer exception handling block.

The rough graphs are up, and they show that we have a big problem. Source wiki edits and deletes always fail, we haven't recorded a single success.

What is there left to do for the completion of this ticket?

We should probably try to get more specific information on whey the source edit/deletion fails. - Also, when looking at the numbers, I'm not sure how big the issue really is, since we do not exactly know how the tried/failed ratio is.


  • Show more specific input on why things fail ( if possible )
  • Show numbers on how often source edit/deletion was attempted

Note to team: This is still blocked on T199939: Audit tests/selenium/LocalSettings.php file aiming at possibly deprecating the feature or another means for making $wgEnableUploads = true during browser tests.
