figure out what/how to handle bots/tools with restricted IP Oauth/password stored in the mediawiki databases
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Some bots and tools using https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/OAuth/Owner-only_consumers or https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Bot_passwords security-consciously with a restricted allowed IP range store this information on the mediawiki database.

See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Bot_passwords_table and https://doc.wikimedia.org/mediawiki-core/master/php/classMWRestrictions.html for better understanding of this restriction.

The information stored in the database will need to change to allow for this new IP address and other pubic cloud IPv4 ranges.
