Sorting on pyID is incorrect



When a column is sorted on pyID, the sort is incorrect. For example, ID-100 is sorted as if it were smaller than ID-99.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Sort a column by pyID.

Root Cause

Work IDs are generally built as a combination of Text and Number with '-' separator and as a whole treated as a Text String. As a result, the numeric part of the ID does not determine the sort order.


Perform the following local-changes:
  • Refer to the PDN article using the link given below.

  • Create another property in Assign- class in a custom rule set and update this property value with the value of pxRefObjectInsName by iterating through the list. This property can be configured in the grid for the sortable row. Specify a custom sort function, which can be used for sorting.
