Detailed Description

Interface for objects representing user identity.

This represents the identity of a user in the context of page revisions and log entries.

Starting MediaWiki 1.37, UserIdentity objects should no longer expose an actor ID. The actor ID is considered a storage layer optimization and should not be exposed to and used by application logic. Storage layer code should use ActorNormalization to get an actor ID for a UserIdentity.

Member Function Documentation

◆ equals()

MediaWiki\User\UserIdentity::equals ( ?UserIdentity  $user)

◆ getId()

◆ getName()

◆ isRegistered()

MediaWiki\User\UserIdentity::isRegistered ( )

This must be equivalent to getId() != 0 and is provided for code readability.

There is no equivalent utility for checking whether a user is temporary, since that would introduce a service dependency. Use UserIdentityUtils::isTemp (or UserNameUtils::isTemp) instead.

bool True if user is registered on this wiki, i.e., has a user ID. False if user is anonymous or has no local account (which can happen when importing).

Implemented in MediaWiki\User\UserRightsProxy, MediaWiki\User\UserIdentityValue, and MediaWiki\User\User.
