We provide Wikibase services and Wikibase hosting via Wikibase.Consulting. Also check out our Managed MediaWiki hosting and MediaWiki services.

Interactive demo

You can create your own items, to see the Rules getting applied.

Basic example

  1. Please note the first rule in the config file at MediaWiki:AutomatedValues
  2. Create an account if necessary, confirm email verification
  3. Create new item
  4. Add statement P1 (instance of) to "Person" (Q1)
  5. Add statements for P2 (First name), P3 (last name).
  6. Reload page (you might need to clear cache by hard-reloading see config above).
  7. Notice that the label in english has changed
  8. Add multiple statement P3 (alternative name)
  9. Reload page (you might need to clear cache by hard-reloading see config above).
  10. Notice that each P3 is added as an alias.

Using qualifiers

It is possible to use qualifier within statements to build your label/alias. See the second rule on the configuration page (that uses P3 as a qualifier to P2 to build the label).

See demo item on Q4

  1. Please note the second rule config file at MediaWiki:AutomatedValues
  2. Create an account if necessary, confirm email verification
  3. Create new item
  4. Add statement P1 (instance of) to "Person, with qualifiers" (Q5)
  5. Add statement for P2 (First name), add qualifier P3 (last name).
  6. Reload page (you might need to clear cache by hard-reloading see config above).
  7. Notice that the label in english has changed
  8. Add multiple statement P3 (alternative name)
  9. Reload page (you might need to clear cache by hard-reloading see config above).
  10. Notice that each P3 is added as an alias.

Multiple 'when' selectors

It is possible to use multiple rule selectors, e.g. to select all Instance of (P1) of person (Q1) AND their 'Profession' (P5) is 'Author' (Q5) to make fine grained rules.

See example on Q9

  1. Please note the third rule config file at MediaWiki:AutomatedValues
  2. Create an account if necessary, confirm email verification
  3. Create new item
  4. Add statement P1 (instance of) to "Person, with qualifiers" (Q5)
  5. Add statements for P2 (First name), P3 (last name).
  6. Reload page (you might need to clear cache by hard-reloading see config above).
  7. Notice that the label in english has changed
  8. Add statement P5 (Profession) and set it to Q5 (Author).
  9. Reload page (you might need to clear cache by hard-reloading see config above).
  10. Notice that each label has an added suffix (WRITER)
  11. Notice that the suffix is hard-coded in the rule config.

Language specific behavior

You build specific labels/aliases for specific languages. Please note the second rule config file at MediaWiki:AutomatedValues. Look at the Dutch (nl) rule for building a label. See demo item on Q4. You can also set the language to * to have the rule apply to all default languages of the wikibase instance.
