Open, HighPublic5 Estimated Story Points


As a user of WDQS, I want to have an easy way to submit additional federation endpoints.

As an operator of WDQS, I want to have a simple process that provides flexibility but also protects the service from abuses. has been marked as inactive. Some dicussion around this topic:

We need community input on the process, the Search Platform team should not be in charge of deciding which request make sense and which does not.

We don't have a good understanding of the cost of federation from the WDQS perspective, we want to make sure there are no negative impact.

  • Data in the endpoint needs to be openly licensed (CC-BY, CC0, CC-BY-SA, ODbL ... )
  • create a phabricator ticket for enabling the endpoint for federation
