User:Username@global should be linked to CentralAuth
Open, LowPublic

Description

See T91737: stewardwiki incorrectly links to steward.wikipedia.org, @Glaisher disabled https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-CentralAuthInterlinkFixer.js because mediawiki has this functionality.

However in https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Log/globalauth, User:Username@global no longer links to CentralAuth page.

This should be a function in CentralAuth extension rather than a gadget should do.

Change 240124 had a related patch set uploaded (by Glaisher):
Add log formatter for globalauth/setstatus and suppress/setstatus logs

Maybe we should also remove the @global thing. Global logs such as the global rename log do not contain the @global suffix.

Maybe we should also remove the @global thing. Global logs such as the global rename log do not contain the @global suffix.

The above patch wouldn't remove it as it requires much more work to get it removed. We should try to get it done when we migrate globalauth log to the new logging system.

Change 240124 abandoned by Glaisher:
Add log formatter for globalauth/setstatus and suppress/setstatus logs

Reason:
Per Siebrand. I will try to migrate it to the new system when I have time to do it.

Only in case you do not plan to work on this issue anymore, should you be removed as assignee (via 'Assign / Claim' in the 'Actions' dropdown menu) to avoid cookie-licking?

The above now-abandoned patch actually does implement this but we do not want to do it without migrating to the current log formatter system, it cannot be done easily.

Is this still an issue?

Is this still an issue?

Yes, it is. As an alternative, it may be linked to Metawiki user page, since it is user global page. Currently, the red link is unexpected and lets think the user does not exist (at least their user page).
