Quarry suggests invalid database names, and doesn't suggest some valid database names
Open, Needs TriagePublic


While the recent implementation of database name suggestion in T287471 is helpful, it has numerous invalid entries. As mentioned in T287471#7300959, this doesn't do much validation, and so it suggests things like "commonwiki_p" instead of "commonswiki_p". Additionally, it won't suggest e.g. iuwiki_p, even though that's a perfectly valid database name.

With the new database structure, there's no obvious way of finding all of the valid database names. Running SELECT dbname from wiki; on meta_p gives all the wiki databases, but leaves out those such as meta_p itself. In addition to the wikis themselves, there are at least:

  • meta_p
  • centralauth_p
  • information_schema
  • information_schema_p
  • heartbeat_p

though I don't believe this is exhaustive.
