List global group membership on Special:CentralAuth
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I think the title says it all. To make the special page more useful, it would be nice to see a list of groups/flags on each wiki, as well as global rights (see e.g. [[sulutil:PiRSquared17]] to see how useful it can be).

Tentatively adding the "easy" keyword.

Global group membership will be easy since that's stored in the centralauth database, local rights are not however, and will be difficult.

Are edit counts stored in the centralauth database? I think someone may have already solved the challenging part of this, but I have no idea.

Hm, they aren't. So I dug a bit deeper, and CentralAuthUser::localUserData (via CentralAuthUser::queryAttached) already fetches the user's groups, it's just not exposed anywhere. So it is easy ;)

The _ is a bit weird, but that is the proper group name.
