Add support for 'external identifier' data type (top-level and qualifiers)
Open, HighPublic


Add support for the data type 'external identifier' for statements and qualifiers on commons

A external identifier data type is essentially a string with constraints - on wikidata it's entered as a string, but it's validated against the property's constraints (it seems - under constraints)

Users need to be able to add an external id for any property that takes external identifiers as a value, in the File page and in UploadWizard

Acceptance criteria:

  • can select a property with data type 'external identifier' and enter a value for it, on File page and UploadWizard
    • on File page
    • in UploadWizard
  • incorrect values return an error
