Order graphql results by calendar metadata value

Avatar

Level 2

Hi all,

I've the need to query a set of fragments and order the results by the value of a specific calendar metadata with name "cq:lastModified" or "cq:lastModified".

I found a way to extract the metadata values with this query:

 

query {
  myFragmentList {
    items {
      _metadata {
        calendarMetadata {
          name
          value
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

 

 

that gives me this result

 

...
"items": [
        {
          "_metadata": {
            "calendarMetadata": [
              {
                "name": "jcr:created",
                "value": "2023-10-19T15:24:21.482Z"
              },
              {
                "name": "cq:lastPublished",
                "value": "2024-01-11T21:45:00.668Z"
              },
              {
                "name": "cq:lastModified",
                "value": "2023-10-19T15:26:16.483Z"
              }
            ]
          }
        },
...

 

 

What I want to do is to find a way to write the correct sort dotted expression to use the value of a calendarMetadata array element as sort field, for example:

 

 

query {
  myFragmentList (sort: "_metadata.calendarMetadata[name='cq:lastModified'].value") {
    ...
  }
}

 

 

but I cannot find a way to do that.

 

Any help is really appreciated.

 

Thank you.

@costyfax : Have you tried by replacing single quotes with a double quote-

sort: '_metadata.calendarMetadata[name="cq:lastModified"].value'

@Kamal_Kishor yes I tried some options but I cannot find any syntax to access to a specified field inside _metadata.

The problem is that there is no a specific field under _metadata/calendarMetadata that extract a specific data (for ex. lastModified) but the calendar metadata is an array of key/value objects and I need (I think) a specific syntax to order by a value of an object inside this array.

The sort parameter for a graphql query is a string so the only option that I have is to use a dotted syntax to select a field but I cannot find any example that is using a field under _metadata.

 

Thank you again!

@kautuk_sahni we managed the order adding an editorial field into the content model. I couldn't find any solution to order by a specific metadata.

I am also facing a similar issue where I want to sort via cq:lastPublished. I have done it via comparator method. But is there any efficient way to do it via querying? @costyfax @Kamal_Kishor
