Fully automate ImportDump after ensuring security
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The current system works fairly well so this task is by all means not urgent but eventually it would probably be better to be able to fully automate this for efficiency reasons.

By full automation I just mean that it would no longer be necessary to have to copy/paste the command on a server. It's probably not a good idea to allow fully automatic imports though, so having to approve would still be a thing but when it's approved it would run automatically just like wiki creations.

The reason why full automation wasn't chosen at the beginning was due to security concerns. Therefore, what this task mainly is for is so that there is a full and confident security review of the current method and if it is confirmed that it's safe and that nothing else can be inserted into commands full automation can be done.

Noting that this would be done in a similar way to https://github.com/miraheze/DataDump/blob/master/includes/jobs/DataDumpGenerateJob.php but would require additional security

Due to the large number of tasks in this area and the particular use that automation can provide, moving this task to normal priority. Assigning to @Universal_Omega as they are almost done with a version of this.
