Don't compute a nonsensical assigned task count for logged-out users

Authored by epriestley on Nov 19 2014, 9:00 PM.



When a logged-out user views the home page, we currently compute a meaningless "assigned tasks" count which just counts every open task. Don't do this.

Ideally ManiphestTaskQuery should get some tightening up too (that is, withOwners(array(null)) should not select every task), but that might affect other stuff and the performance implications of counting every open task are affecting WMF, so just fix the immediate issue for now.

Test Plan
  • Viewed homepage as a logged out user, no assigned task count.
  • Viewed homepage as a logged-in user, still saw assigned task count.

I guess withOwners(array(null)) is internal shorthand for "unowned", so this is actually just counting unassigned tasks. Still broken and junky but the API which allowed the error is at least somewhat defensible.

chasemp edited edge metadata.

Thank you for your expediciousness :)
