Description

Hi,

I have a couple of requests which will help with off-boardings. Please let me know if this is possible.

  1. For Office, Collab, and Foundation once "Reason" is selected to "no longer employed by WMF" can it auto select all items under Actions to block: Editing, Account creation, Sending email, Editing their own talk page auto checked once the reason is selected to
  1. No longer have auto selection for "Additional options: Automatically block the last IP address used by this user, and any subsequent IP addresses they try to edit from"

This will help speed up the off-boarding process and ensure less of security holes for IT.

Best,
Emerauld

@eross tagging with Office-IT based on the description. The second request is a duplicate of T231943: Uncheck "Automatically block the last IP address" by default on Special:Block on officewiki, and the first should be possible to do via a user script

Please let me know if this is possible.

@eross: For clarity, who are you addressing, as no team or code project is tagged on this task (apart from Office-IT themselves now)?

@Aklapper I'm thinking it should be Wikimedia-Site-requests and @Mooeypoo

Ah, thanks. Wikimedia-Site-requests would apply if the software (MediaWiki) already offered such configuration options. I assume this task is about the page Special:Block. I don't see an option about autoblock in https://noc.wikimedia.org/conf/InitialiseSettings.php.txt so I guess it is not possible to set this in MediaWiki itself. It sounds like something that could potentially be implemented via local JavaScript (gadget; user script).
