I am looking for a way to sort GraphQL results by custom metadata field. There is a way how to filter by custom metadata field that is described in documentation, however, I cannot find how to sort. Is it possible?

The GraphQL result sorting currently supported the following fields only, It's possible to extend GraphQL extension in sites 9.1.

  • CREATION_DATE
  • INITIAL_PUBLISH_DATE
  • ITEM_ID ITEM_TYPE
  • LAST_PUBLISH_DATE
  • NAMESPACE_ID
  • OWNING_PUBLICATION_ID
  • PUBLICATION_ID
  • TITLE
  • UPDATED_DATE

Example:

{
  items(
    filter: {
      customMeta: {scope: Item, key: "mykey", value: "42"},
      sort:{sortBy:LAST_PUBLISH_DATE, order:Descending}
    }
  ) {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        publicationId
        namespaceId
        itemId
        itemType
        title
        customMetas {
          edges {
            node {
              key
              value
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Indeed!. Refer to the SDL Documentation for GraphQL query result sorting more details.

I hope it helps.

  • Good question, @Stan. It's probably worth starting a new TRex question so others can find it along with the eventual answer. :-) – Alvin Reyes Sep 19 at 0:52
