Reproducing the Issue

Select Sort in Report Center:

E.G. Sort according to a combination of the criteria e.g 'Name' and 'Descending' can appear not to apply when selected within the instance.


This issue can occur if multiple languages are available within an instance.

When using a certain system language, sorting within report center may not appear to work as some artifact names are not localized in that language.

If there is a mixture of some reports with default company locale report names and some with user locale report names; the reports without locale names will be sorted first as per the sort criteria. After that the default company locale reports will be sorted as per the same criteria.

For example, If you have French selected in a system but the default language is English. When you chose 'Ascending' and 'Name' in French, it will first filter by the reports that only have the original default language names (e.g English) at the top and then be followed by the ones with names set in the chosen user local French language.


Ensure localised report names are applied to all reports in the language you are sorting by.

Steps (Within Report Center):

- Select Take Action

- Selecting Renaming

- Add a localisation name.
