Rollbase Mobile - Can I change the sort when using a related object view?

  • I have a customer object that has a relationship to notes.  When I used the prebuilt service for the notes view, it sorts with the oldest notes first.  i need to display the notes with the newest at the top, but I don't have any control over this view since it is built automatically by Rollbase when the mobile project is created.  If I have a view I've built, it respects the sorting.

    Is this something that I can control in mobile when the data is returned?

  • Hi jsniemi79,
     
    The data shown in mobile emulator is based on the view available in Rollbase environment. By default the sorting is set to ‘Updated At’ attribute and is pointed to ‘descending’ value. Following is the output in the emulator in the default scenario.
     
     
    I have changed the sorting order in Rollbase view and is affected properly in the Mobile emulator as below:
     
     
    Case 2: For normal REST services and the database services we can perform the same sorting using sort attribute in the request parameters as below:
     

    1.       Add the request attribute by the name sort

     
     

    2.       For displaying the records in Ascending Order use the direct field name as the value for the sort attribute

     
     

    3.       For displaying the records in descending order add – before the field name as the value for the sort attribute

     
     
     
    We can also sort the records with multiple fields with comma separated values for the sort attribute.
     
    Hope this helps.
     
    Thanks and Regards,
    Anil Kumar.
