Watchlist should filter out logged actions from Wikidata marked as bot when told to exclude bot
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

It seems like logged actions from Wikidata that are marked as bot are treated as non-bot actions when I see my watchlist on English Wikipedia. It appears that the problem happens with logged actions only, not edits.

With [Latest revision][Page creations][Logged actions][Wikidata edits][Human (not bot)] turned on, my watchlist has this line (which is not an expected behavior):

2021-03-05

(diff | hist) . . Dm Early modern human (Q15978631); 17:55:07 . . MsynABot (talk | contribs) (Protected "Q15978631": Highly used item: to be indefinitely semi-protected per Wikidata:Page protection policy#Highly used items; please use Template:Edit request on the item talk page if you cannot edit this item ([Edit=Allow only autoconfirmed users] (indefinite)))

For comparison, with [Latest revision][Page creations][Logged actions][Wikidata edits][Bot] turned on, my watchlist has this line (which *is* an expected behavior):

2021-03-09
(diff | hist) . . Dmb Versailles, Yvelines (Q621); 10:55:35 . . AVMbot (talk | contribs) (‎Changed claim: Property:P1082: 85,862, Add France 2018 population; ‎Changed an entity: Add France 2018 population)

Ideally, both should be shown only when [Bot] is turned on as a watchlist filter.

On my Wikidata watchlist, both are treated as a bot edit/action.

There might be a common cause, but I think the old task was about edits. My problem here is about bot actions, not bot edits.

The other ticket is also about actions not edits. I think this is partly a duplicate, but partly different - since the other ticket is about all protections, and this one is about bot protections.

Ah no, sorry, that was about overlap with T276613 - I didn't notice you were talking about T246746.
