Add support for change tags to MessagePoster
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


At the moment, MediaWiki core's Javascipt module for posting messages (mediawiki.messagePoster) only supports a message subject and body. It would be nice to be able to add change tags to the message as well, at least for the WikitextMessagePoster.

This will be used in T226789: Add a #pagetriage revision tag to every edit made by the PageTriage extension

Change 522019 merged by jenkins-bot:
[mediawiki/core@master] Add change-tags to MessagePoster

dom_walden added a subscriber: dom_walden.

Using MessagePoster I was allowed to add a tags parameter to api.php?action=edit, which tags the edit (like so). The other POST parameters were the same as before. The parameter is optional; without it the POST is the same as before.

Example code:

msgProm = mw.messagePoster.factory.create(
					new mw.Title(
msgProm.then(function ( messagePoster ) {
                                                {"tags": "pagetriage"}
