one-of constraint (Q21510859) specifies that only certain values are allowed for a property. Its opposite is none of constraint (Q52558054).

For example, the only valid values for driving side (P1622) are left (Q13196750) and right (Q14565199).

If no constraint scope (P4680) is specified, this constraint is checked everywhere.

Possible actions[edit]

There are several possible ways to address a violation of this constraint:

  • It is possible that the value is erroneous, and one of the allowed values should be used instead, e. g. left (Q13196750) (direction) instead of left-wing (Q164597) (political term, has the same label in some languages).
  • It is possible that the statement is incorrect and should be removed.
  • It is possible that the item is a rare, but legitimate exception to the constraint, and nothing should be done.


This constraint has one mandatory parameter:

item of property constraint (P2305)
Contains the allowed values. no value Help and unknown value Help are interpreted literally, like any normal value (statements with no value Help or unknown value Help are only allowed if these special values are also given in the allowed values).

When the constraint is set to the property, the following template is automatically displayed in the property talk page. The template is created by Module:Constraints using Template:Constraint, invoked from Template:Property documentation. Translations are defined at Module:i18n/constraints.

One of left (Q13196750), right (Q14565199): value must be one of the specified items. Please expand list if needed. (Help)
