Update Platform Engineering-owned products that may be affected by IP Masking
Closed, ResolvedPublic


IP Masking will affect lots of our products, features, tools, gadgets, etc. This task is for tracking work to update those that are owned by #Platform-Engineering, ahead of IP Masking being enabled on WMF sites.

See T326816: Update features for temporary accounts, particularly What will be affected.

A preliminary investigation (T326759) has found that the following may be affected:

  • TorBlock
  • TrustedXFF
  • WikimediaApiPortal

Event Timeline

Went over this with Tim. The WikimediaApiPortal Skin seems to be the only thing that needs adjustment. Specifically, for temp users, UserMenuComponent should show a "login" and a "create account" link, but no logout link.

Change 895223 had a related patch set uploaded (by Daniel Kinzler; author: Daniel Kinzler):

Nothing more to do here as far as I can tell.
