Streamline the deployment process of Growth features, by automatically prefill the Community configuration page
Open, HighPublic

Description

The Growth team recently released a community configuration system. The idea here is to help more wikis to get the tools by streamlining the deployment.

A first step is to check if it is feasible to prefill the Community configuration page using a script. The idea would be to

  1. populate the Configuration page,
  2. let the communities to update them
  3. let them turn the features on when ready.

Questions

  • How communities can turn the features on? And off? Under which conditions?
  • Is it possible to check if minimum of links is not reached, so that the features (or a given module) aren't deployed? The idea is to avoid communities where the tools would be empty.

Assuming this is on the roadmap since it has an assignee.

Yup! Working on this was mentioned in this week's planning mail. Moving to sprint. The (technical) goal here is to make initWikiConfig.php to generate config via the WD items and fallbacks mentioned here.

T284149: Deploy Growth features on Slovak Wikipedia will be used as a first test for this script. No rush though: no deployment date has been set for this wiki.

Change 697827 had a related patch set uploaded (by Urbanecm; author: Urbanecm):

Looking forward for that! As of now, there are two things that needs to happen:

  • the three patches above need to be merged
  • I need to write a fourth patch that will add suggested edit configuration-related QIDs to that script

This needs to happen before Slovak Wikipedia deployment (which will be used to try this process out).
