Is it possible to sort search scope results by field of reference type? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a few modifications to FIM:

    • custom object type - Department
    • a reference to the Department object in Person object (named departmentRef)
    • additional search scope with departmentRef field

    I can sort users' search scope by any field but not by departmentRef. Is it possible to sort search scope by field of reference type?

  • Old question but still relevant. This one can only be solved by cheating:

    Have a workflow or a sync rule that puts (and maintains) the denormalized data (department name as a string) on the person object. Then you can sort by that.
