Mediaviewer views should be reworked to be an eventlogging event
Open, MediumPublic

Description

At this time mediaviewer views of images (as opposed to preloads) are being sent to a specific beacon. Those requests look like this:

en.wikipedia.org /beacon/media ?duration=7063&uri=https%3A%2F%2Fupload.wikimedia.org%2Fwikipedia%2Fcommons%2Fthumb%2Fa%2Fa3%2FCannon_Beach_At_Dusk.jpg%2F1920px-Cannon_Beach_At_Du

These requests should be reworked to be eventloging/eventgate ones so they can benefit from the event pipeline. To my knowledge at this time after being sent those requests are not stored/agreggated anywhere.

Event Timeline

Assigning this to @dr0ptp4kt so he can assign to the pertinent team cc @Tgr that used to work on this

mforns added a subscriber: mforns.

This looks like a good candidate for an EventGate first implementation.

mforns moved this task from Incoming to Event Platform on the Analytics board.
dr0ptp4kt added subscribers: jlinehan, mpopov, Ottomata and 2 others.

Kicking over to Mark as manager of the Structured Data engineering team, where maintenance of FKA Multimedia team projects is performed.

@MarkTraceur I think you can connect engineers in your team with @jlinehan (Product Infrastructure) + @mpopov (Product Analytics) and @Ottomata (Analytics Engineering) for details.

I'll add Joaquin and Kate to this task as well for visibility.

Talked with @jlinehan that (once our phase 1 of client was merged , which just was!) this work would be the next step, so we have some client code using the new client and also get valuable data after the vertical is deployed.

See client code just merged: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/mediawiki/extensions/EventLogging/+/573677/

::gasps:: Amazing. So much awesome will come from this incremental change.

We had a meeting on Wednesday where we decided we want to work on session length metrics via a session ping event first.
