When list=allusers is used with auactiveusers, a property 'recenteditcount'
is returned in the result. In bug 67301 it was pointed out that this
property is including various other logged actions, and so should really be
named something like "recentactions".
Gerrit change 130093, merged today, adds the "recentactions" result
property. "recenteditcount" is also returned for backwards compatability,
but will be removed at some point during the MediaWiki 1.25 development
Any clients using this property should be updated to use the new property
name. The new property will be available on WMF wikis with 1.24wmf12, see
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.24/Roadmap for the schedule.

I'm working on a webservice that use the Mediawiki API and I'd like to have some stats about the traffic of my api calls to the commons.wikipedia.org domain.
In particular, I'd like to have the number of GET Requests by Api-User-Agent, the number of views/edit by Api-User-Agent and the stats of the Wikipedia traffic from inbound links by a specif domain or url.
Is this possible somehow?
Thank you in advance,
The Wikimedia REST API's /page/summary response contains content_urls and
api_urls keys that provide convenience lists of various URLs of potential
interest to the consumer. These lists appear in other endpoint responses
as well, as the page summary response is transcluded in various places
throughout the REST API.
Currently, these URL strings are constructed erroneously using unencoded
page title strings. A proposed patch (
applies encodeURIComponent to encode these before including them in URLs.
Since this endpoint is advertised as stable, I'm announcing the change
here in advance. Barring any objections, the change will be deployed late
