Samtar added a comment to T158198: What query would return similar deleted page names?.

@Aklapper Hi Andre, this was more of a personal note to myself to look into it :-P hence why it's in the User-Samtar project... I'm guessing there will be some sort of database query which could be run on (hopefully) a replica of the enwp db which will return similar deleted titles.

Samtar added a comment to T158175: Debug EventLogging ExternalLinksChange.

Looking closer at the beta cluster (this section in particular) it appears it may not be suitable for development. I think we should still enable the schema there and use the above "how to verify events" section for some further testing. I'll see if there's somewhere we can use as a "development playground"

Samtar added a comment to T158175: Debug EventLogging ExternalLinksChange.

I'll take a look at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Analytics/EventLogging/TestingOnBetaCluster - looks like we'll need to be assigned root. How to verify events looks very useful!

@Samwalton9 any thoughts? The beta cluster is apparently designed for this kinda stuff but we'd need to be a little more considerate - if we did have our own instance it would (hopefully!) be short lived and wouldn't take up too many resources and we could focus less on being considerate and more on getting to the root of the problem.

[fingers crossed this is the last time I reopen this!] Completely my fault, I didn't realise I would need access to /etc/mysql/conf.d/research-client.cnf which is granted by researchers. I only need access to stat1003 and research-client.cnf and by the principle of least privilege researchers is the only appropriate user group. I've confirmed with @Samwalton9 that this would be allow access to the EventLogging data
