In Drop down options need to move "Other" to be the first select



User configured a drop-down with Datapage as a source. But in drop-down options need to move "Other" to be the first selection rather than Govt. Govt  should come as  the second position. Issue is in Prod only its working fine in Dev & stage.

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Add pxDrodown control with datapage as source in section.
2. Data page source is set as activity.
3. Run the case and observe the order in the drop-down values.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error.

Activity used to populate datapage has Obj-Browse as one of the steps, which fetched data from datatable. As per Obj-Browse, in the order records got entered in DB it fetches in same order,if no ordering/sorting defined at column level in that step. Due to this in different environment order of records were different and in one environment option1 comes as first value but in other option2 is coming as first value.


Perform the following local-change: 

Adding sort order as descending in Obj-Browse step for the column resolves the issue.
