I want to clear the indicator for messages
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: Gerard.meijssen

Description:
I have no way of clearing the red indicator for number of messages. As the number is too high I will not click them one at a time. This makes the indicator stop being useful as it shows the maximum of 99+


Temporary instructions on how to do this manually, for a single wiki, are at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:T5k8lyl00mxrfrnk

Hi, which "red indicator for number of messages" on which website?
Do you refer to [[mw:Echo]] notifications (see screenshot on that page) or is there something in "WikibaseDatabase" (component of this ticket)?
In general, exact steps to reproduce (or a screenshot) are welcome.

We will push out an improved version "mark all read" in the coming weeks, hopefully this will resolve the issue for you

Echo has a hard limit on the number of notifications it will mark as read, if you have more than that the mark as read button stops working. We should fix this.

Are there plans to do so, and is "high priority" realistic here?

hard to say, i even wrote the code for this at one point in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/64858/ but it was abandoned after 6 months of no movement

Merged task description:

A user reports that he tries to mark all notifications as read, but can't. He can clear batches of 25, but it still shows 99+...

(Explanatory note: because the flyout only shows 25 messages at a time maximum, the "Mark all as read" button will only clear batches of 25. This could possibly be clarified, with a tooltip?)

This is possible via the "Mark all as read" button on the panel, and the "Mark all as read in selected wiki" button (in cog menu) on the Special:Notifications page.
Marking as resolved.
