Can I use ORDER BY in my IQL (advanced search)


I need to expand my sortering in my Insight search and include two or more attributes.

I have tried this in Basic search but clicking the column heads seems to only allow one sorting key

I the tried the advanced search and appended: ORDER BY Status,Date to my IQL

This gave me nothing back. It seems that ORDER BY is not supported. Couldn't find anything in the docu either saying the opposite.

Is it possible to sort on more than one attribute?

HI Svante,

I'm glad to say that ORDER BY is supported in the upcoming 5.1 version. This version will only support sorting on one attribute, but this is something that we will look into improve later on.

Best Regards
