The sorting of legend is not applied as in the report settings for characteristic in HTML5 dashboard.
Reproducing the Issue
1. Goto Analysis Workcenter.
2. Select any Dashboard which has report view with charcateristic in Columns.
3. In report view under charcateristic settings choose Sort Order either Ascending or Descending for that characteristic.
4. Select option to show Legend in report view from report, it will sort in Ascending order as chosen in setting.
5. Show legend for the same view in Dashboard.
It will not be sorted as per the characteristic setting in report.
This is expected system behavior in HTML5 Dashboards since the Characteristic is added to Columns.
This is expected behavior for HTML5 Dashboards.
However, you can swtich to Responsive UI and see the dashboard as it considers the settings of the characteristics though it is column.
