Processing errors are stored with a special property starting in Semantic MediaWiki 2.4.0Released on 9 July 2016 and compatible with MW 1.19.0 - 1.27.x..1

The rationale for providing information on processing errors via special property "Processing error"Holds a "container" with further information about a problem and allows to explore and rectify it is to make issues more visible and to provide better assistance for rectifying mistakes made. It gets automatically filled with a label for the "container" holding further information about the respective problem, i.e. the description of the error and if applicable further information like improper values or failed queries or the error type. Click on the search icon search icon right next to the label for the processing error "container" to access it.

Special page "ProcessingErrorList"Lists errors that occurred in connection with Semantic MediaWiki provides an easily accessible overview on processing errors and should be checked in regular intervals.


See special page "Processing error list" on this very wiki to see a list of processing errors.

{{#ask: [[Processing error.Has improper value for::Property:Telephone number]]
