In this page we want to demonstrate how you can track entity usage in clients.

On Wikimedia projectsEdit

GUIEdit

Special:EntityUsage

You can find pages subscribed to any given entities using Special:EntityUsage. For example w:fr:Special:EntityUsage/Q30 gives list of pages (with the aspect they are using) that use United States of America (Q30).

action=edit

At the bottom of pages in clients you can find wikibase entities that are being used in that page. For example in action=edit on "Alan Turing" article in English Wikipedia you can find "Wikidata entities used in this page".

action=info

When you check out information of a page in clients you can find entities being used in that page. For example in action=info of "Barack Obama" in English Wikipedia you can find "Wikidata entities used in this page".

APIEdit

Getting entity usage data is possible using action=query&prop=wbentityusage and action=query&list=wblistentityusage.

On WikidataEdit

You can find client wikis subscribed to any given entity by checking out their information page. For example you can find wikis subscribed to left-handedness (Q789447) in here.

It exposes wikis subscribed to the given entity.
