"Changes made in edit" field not shown on AbuseFilter designed for flow
Open, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT


List of steps to reproduce (step by step, including full links if applicable):

  • Imagine an abusefilter for flow filter group set, and it match action like edit-header or create-header etc.
  • Try to trigger this filter (an example on mediawikiwiki, this filter will block IP user from editing board description)
  • View abuselog

What happens?:
We know for traditional filter (in "default" filter group), there will be a "Changes made in edit" field at the top of an abuselog, if corresponding is designed for "edit" action

However, for a flow filter, there is no such field in abuselog. Instead, we have to find what is added in edit_diff or added_lines field.

What should have happened instead?:
Flow filter should also show "Changes made in edit" field.

The relevant code checks that the action is "edit", and nothing else. In the past, that code was changed a few times due to corrupted blobs in the database (an issue that is now fixed). Instead, I think we could show the diff iff old_wikitext and new_wikitext are set. It may hide the diff for older rows with missing data, but I assume it's still worthwhile.
