Custom OAK index to index the data by Latin alphabet to retrieve correctly sorted data has no effect.

I already asked this question in Stack Overflow but it has not been solved yet.

I paste the question here.

 

I have a set of assets which had a property "name". I want to get a dynamic number of those assets and I should get it alphabetically sorted by that "name" property. I query that with this query:

type=dam:Asset
path=/content/dam/en/foobar/contacts/
orderby=@jcr:content/data/master/@name
orderby.sort=asc
p.limit=3

and this is working, so in a set of names:

[Paloma, Abel, José, Eduardo]

it retrieves:

Abel, Eduardo, José.

The problem is with spanish alphabet, in which Á is the same letter as A. So in a set of:

[Paloma, Abel, José, Álvaro, Eduardo]

it retrieves:

Abel, Eduardo, José.

Being Álvaro excluded because its not part of the first 3 elements after ordeby it, when in should be the second, it should retrieve:

Abel, Álvaro, Eduardo.

So, to fix that, I've created a custom oak lucene index like below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Where in the synonyms.txt I had:

á, a

Á, A

and so on. Also tried with a charFilter with Mapping equivalent chars. I have made sure that my custom oak index is the one my query is using with Query Performance Diagnosis tool. But nothing works, after reindex the query results are the same.

It seems that the custom index has no effect. What could be wrong?

Hi @pmasvidal 

Could you check if your query is using your your custom index.
You can check this in Explain query section of the query performance tool.

here is the json with the result of the Explain Query tool:

It seems that is using my foobarCFIndexFilter.
