=== What's requested: ===
The Editing team to instrument image search in VE , which it is not currently (see T259308), or mentor SD team to instrument it.
=== Why it's requested: ===
The SD team will be integrating its new MediaSearch API into Visual Editor (see T259896). We need to measure the success of this change, and to do so we need image search in VE to be instrumented, which it is not currently (see T259308).
=== Deadline for request: ===
We're hoping to integrate with VE by the end of this quarter (Q2 2020-2021, so realistically that's by the end of November 2020). Not sure if that's at all possible on your end - I know it's very short notice, but we didn't realize there wasn't already instrumentation.
=== Other helpful information: ===
As per T259308, we want to be able to answer the following:
-What percentage of image searches in VE lead to the subsequent addition of an image to the article?
-The location in the image grid of the image that is chosen
-How often image search in VE is used
If location in the image grid of the image that is chosen is more difficult to measure, that could wait. We'd love to be able to measure this both before and after the change to using the new MediaSearch API.
This request is for the instrumentation, not the analysis. @nettrom_WMF will be doing the analysis.
Also - let us know if the editing team wants to do any review of the MediaSearch API or anything like that before we make the switch in VE (and if I should file a separate request for that).
