christophbraun added a comment to T174981: Add pageviews total counts to WDQS.

@Nuria WDQS is currently used by the GLAM community to create queries that are beyond the scope of existing tools for a specific purpose as mentioned above. Page views for Wikidata items as well as page views for media files and articles linked to Wikidata items, selectable by time, would enable us to communicate the impact of our projects and efforts to institutional stakeholders. I don't have the technical know-how to debate the pros and cons between a WDQS based and an API based solution. I think @Zache made a great point - in the end what matters most is a decent usability for the non-tech-savvy user. From my perspective the best approach for highly individualised page view queries remains unclear. Are pagepiles a suitable approach for this problem? Can they be churned through the API?

Thanks for your comment @Yurik and @Nuria.
The GLAM use case applies to queries beyond the scope of existing tools like https://tools.wmflabs.org/glamtools/treeviews/ or https://tools.wmflabs.org/glamtools/glamorgan.html
WDQS would allow us to select a specific set of information that would be difficult to get by just intersecting categories (e.g. all paintings by a painter that were painted in a certain timeframe and are now part of the collection of a particular GLAM). Even more so for information that is not reflected in our category system (e.g. the provenance of a painting).
Can we achieve this with an API or is WDQS mandatory for this?

Thanks for your input @Elya, @Yurik and @Tagishsimon.
Do you know who has to greenlight/authorise the upload to the Blazegraph index?
Assuming there is a huge backlog for this kind of requests, where can I find it and how is it prioritised?

Adding page views to WDQS would be highly beneficial to the GLAMwiki community. Exploring the impact of cultural partnerships with galleries, libraries, archives and museums with a tool beyond the capability of treeviews could give us an edge in negotiating with institutional partners. Successful projects and content donations depend on meaningful metrics that are quantifiable and can measure the impact of our efforts.
