Issue with field sorting using Table Transformer and Pivot Table in Confluence

Issue with field sorting using Table Transformer and Pivot Table in Confluence.

I am using Table Transformer macro and have come-up with a sort order of a column.

Column Name: Approval Category

Values: Req, QA, BSA, UAT

 

However, when I am using a Pivot on top of Table Transformer, my column Sort Order is changing.

I am getting the sorting in this form (which I do NOT want).

Values: BSA, QA, Req, UAT

 

Is there a way to retain my sort order in Pivot, either using SQL or on JIRA?

Values: Req, QA, BSA, UAT

Hi @Santanu Roy ,

You have two options to solve the problem.

The first one is to choose the Preserve original sorting type of sorting for your Pivot macro. If the default sorting or the sequence of mentioned items in the original table suit you, it will be a perfect workaround:

Wed 1-4.pngSELECT * FROM T*
ORDER BY
CASE WHEN T1.'Approval Category' LIKE "Req" THEN "1"
WHEN T1.'Approval Category' LIKE "QA" THEN "2"
WHEN T1.'Approval Category' LIKE "BSA" THEN "3"
WHEN T1.'Approval Category' LIKE "UAT" THEN "4"
ELSE T1.'Approval Category' END ASC
