Can you order an advanced search by something other than "date"

I'm currently trying to return unique files, counting how many times the file changed. However, I want to order by the file changes decending (Most changes to a particular file at the "top" of the report). This query will give us greater insight on problem areas/code within our code base.

The current query looks something like this, but it fails to parse anything other than "order by date." Would love to be able to order by count(revisions). Is it possible?


Sample Query:

select revisions from dir "<some dir path>"

order by date desc

group by file

return path,

count(revisions) as "Total Fixes",

sum(linesAdded) as "Lines Added",

sum(linesRemoved) as "Lines Removed"

Hi John,

In EyeQL, "order by date" is a defined query. You cannot change it to "order by revisions" or anything else.

So the answer to your question would be No you cannot.

Thanks for the quick response.

Do you know if any other integrated way (i.e. REST sdk or "report builder") that would allow my to customize the queries a little futher to suit what I'm trying to do?

Can you tell me more about what exactly you are trying to do? Yes you have a lot of options.

1. Work directly on the database and generate reports

2. Use Report Builder to connect to the database

3. Write your own plugin refer
