Setting the Default Search Order to Other Than None

Setting the Default Search Order to Other Than None


Cb Response Version 5.x


The default search order in the UI is None for binary and process pages. The UI gives the users the ability to sort by other criteria, but the selection is not persisted and reverts to None again when the pages are reloaded. This default setting can be changed in cb.conf:

# Parameterization of search page default sort order and page size (default are
# as shown below)




If the chosen setting isn't valid, there will be a broken API call visible in solr/debug.log:
