AEM 6.3 -> SSort assets in alphabatical order in assets.html for coloumn view (if possible all views)

Avatar

Level 2

I have a requirement to sort the assets folders/assets in alphabetical order

eg: /content/dam/a (a folder)

      /content/dam/b

     /content/dam/c

also /content/dam/a/a.jpg

        /content/dam/a/b.jpg    

    /content/dam/a/c.jpg

Tried the following:

1) overriding  /libs/wcm/core/content/sites/jcr:content/views/column/datasource and adding properties

sortName = modified (Type is String)

sortDir = asc (Type is String)

2) creating sling:oderableFolder
But the same affect.

Appreciate the help. Thank you

Hi Sunil,

Can you try to overlay columns [1] to switch 'sortable' to 'true' and make columns sortable in List view. In your case if you need to sort by name - update sortable property to true for [2] node.

[1]

/libs/dam/gui/content/commons/availablecolumns

[2]

/libs/dam/gui/content/commons/availablecolumns/name

Can you overlay

/libs/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/views/column/datasource

and add below properties to overlaid node

/apps/dam/gui/content/assets/jcr:content/views/column/datasource

sortName = name (Type is String)

sortDir = asc (Type is String)

Thank you anubhas68994354

I am able to sort on list view- as well  they want it like default (to avoid user/author action to sort). Aswell column view is the one the    authors use the most here.

Thank you @Arun Patidar,

Hi Sunil,

Per my understanding sorting only works for List view as of now. The column and card views are not sortable.

Overriding above paths and adding those properties will only impact list view.

Hi Sunil,

I did not try this I just point out you to assets datatsource instead of site datasource, I'll check and come back to you

Hi Sunil,

As per me sorting works only for List view. The fix given by me is only for List view.

Hi,

I think OOTB there is no way to do sorting for assets for column view like sites.
