Flow should be able to enumerate all flow enabled pages on a wiki
Open, HighPublic

Description

I want to see a list of all Flow boards, similar to how LQT provides https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:PagesWithProp?propname=use-liquid-threads&propname-other=

This will probably use a page_content_model query, with an exclude for NS_TOPIC.

Let's figure this out once we've figured out how we'll enable flow on pages (other than the current hardcoded config): https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70073

Due to an important amount of requests and the future activation of Flow as a beta feature on zh.wp, we really need to be able to have an overview concerning Flow pages on a wiki, at least with an automated category.

I agree we should expose this in the software, probably with a tracking category, but in the meantime you can get a list from Quarry pretty easily: https://quarry.wmflabs.org/query/6903 (to get results for a different wiki, just change zhwiki to something else).

Quarry does the job, but it is not a general-public tool: as many users, I don't know how to create SQL requests :)
A category would allow people from a wiki to see all pages with a Flow board. It also can be useful for us if we want to send messages to these boards.

I'm currently working on T125632: Plan, write and submit a satisfaction survey concerning Flow to communities
Having an hidden category on each wiki would be very helpful to post messages on al Flow boards by using MassMessage.

Having an hidden category on each wiki would be very helpful to post messages on al Flow boards by using MassMessage.

That could be pretty noisy. Posting to the village pump or equivalent would be less so. But it might be okay (in order to get broad participation) as long as it's not a regular thing.

I plan to do that for the survey only, and have an exclusion list ("please add your name here") for an hypothetical second round.

Concerning Flow satisfaction survey, I'll need to send a message to all Flow users. For this, I need to have an (hidden) category on each wiki. Is it doable shortly?
@Catrope?

Thanks!

For the purposes of the survey I recommend using Quarry or having me run a query on stat1003.

@Catrope Can run that query? I need all pages where Flow is enabled. Thanks!
