Environment

 Report Center

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Change the display language (to English-UK, for example);
  2. Go to Sort;
  3. Select "Ascending" or "Descending" as "Sort Order";
  4. Select "Name" in "Sort Column";
  5. Note that the reports will not show in the correct alphabetic order.

Cause

The engineering team confirmed that it is not the expected behavior. They are working to find a root cause for this issue.

Resolution

The engineering team is working to solve this issue in an upcoming release with no target date defined. We will update this KBA when it is fixed. 

They also provided a workaround, as follows:

  • Rename the report and have only one language so that it will sort the reports properly until the engineering team fixes the problem in the code.
