Sorting of Vendor view in OVSD 5.1

Hi!

When I, inside a Configuration Item, select the Vendor list, the objects in the view are sorted in some strange way. Of course, by clicking the first column, the names are sorted alphabetically. I haven´t found though, were to change the default sorting. Does anyone know were to change this view (Vendor (table))?

Hi there,

When you get the list up, does it give the name of the view being used? It does on my 4.5 system. If it does, then just configure that view to be ordered as you wish.

Hope this helps, Ruth

Sorry - just realised you are 5.1; however, that too shows which view is being used to display the vendors.

So make a note of the view name, go to OV Configuration>Presentation>Views>Organization and select the view you noted. Alter the sorting to be as you want.

Hope this helps, Ruth

Well, that is actually the problem. The view that I get is called "Vendor (Table)" and I just cannot find it under Presentation -> Views. I just had a look under Organization and it definitely not there.

Hi there,

Is it a local view? Try sleceting Organization shortcut and then View>Current views>Define views; can you see this Vendor view there?

Nope, it´s not a local view. I don´t think it has anything to do with the Organization object. The Vendor field is a default Code field under the Configuration Item object.

Re: Sorting of Vendor view in OVSD 5.1

Hi there,

If you are using version 5 and a code field, as far as I know there is nothing you can do about this because it does not let you set up or modify views which show codes (unlike 4.5 where you can).

It is yet another "feature" of version 5!

Sorry that this not the answer you want, Ruth
