What are you trying to achieve? Please describe it in detail.


I have the following documents list: listOfUAs it represents apartments per floor.

R/C represents apartments at ground level.
Cave represents apartments below the ground level.

The correct order to display those in the front end should be something like this:

Cave Direito (right)
Cave Esquerdo (Left)
1º Direito (right)
1º Esquerdo (Left)
2º Direito (right)
2º Esquerdo (Left)

Current Output in JSON format.

“systemStatusCode”: “0”,
“systemStatusMessage”: “Success”,
“listOfUAs”: [
“UADescription”: “1º Direito”,

“UADescription”: “R/C Direito”,
“UAID”: “3656390”
“UADescription”: “R/C Esquerdo”,
“UAID”: “3655809”

There’s any built-in service that can help me to achieve this?
Thank you.

Do you get any error messages? Please provide a full error message screenshot and log file.

Have you installed all the latest fixes for the products and systems you are using?

Take a look at the pub.document:sortDocuments service. It sorts a list of Documents, like your listOfUAs. You’ll need a field to sort on. If the UAID field does not give the order you want, you will have to add a field.
