API: allow listing of deleted files by user who deleted them
Open, LowPublic


In addition to bug 29138: Allow listing of deleted files by sysop, to find all files deleted by a sysop.


tracking to bug 22744, maybe someone has time to look at the indices.

Version: 1.20.x
Severity: enhancement


bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Low.
bzimport set Reference to bz29139.

Log type by user is allready possibile.

For example, Deleted items by any sysop on commons:

or for one particular sysop:

What you want is an additional filter/dropdown menu for namespace (to only see deleted *files*). That is already requested as bug 14711 (Implement namespace filter for logging information)

As such, marking as duplicate of that. Please re-open if you meant something else.

  • This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 14711 ***

There is a different between a list of all pages deleted in the file namespace and a list of all deleted files.

The log is a continuous writen database, so that does not handle restoring of files. And you have to do a second query to get more information about the images, because list=logevents cannot used as a generator.

See bug 27202 for a similar discussion over using the logging table or the image table.

(updating summary to clarify it's to sort by the deleting user)
