The Processing error message property is a special property in Semantic MediaWiki with a built-in meaning: it contains a description of an error. The rationale for this special property is to make issues more visible and to provide better assistance for rectifying the problem.

It was introduced starting with Semantic MediaWiki 2.4.0Released on 9 July 2016 and compatible with MW 1.19.0 - 1.27.x..1 and is enabled by default. It gets automatically filled with a text describing the error, e.g. an improper annotation, exceeded query limits, issues with the query syntax, etc. as soon as it occurs.

This special property was renamed in Semantic MediaWiki 3.1.0Released on 23 September 2019 and compatible with MW 1.31.0 - 1.33.x. from "Has processing error text" which is now an alias for it.2
