Sorting Search Results by Asset Record IDs


While displaying Search results in Telescope, there is an option to sort the results by Asset Record IDs. The behavior of that selection may not seem to be in line with expectations but it works as designed.



The Asset Record ID field is represented in the database as a string, and as such the if the IDs are numeric values, even that gets represented as a text string. This implies that according to this sorting 11 is lesser than 2 and appears before the asset whose Record ID is 2. This behavior cannot be modified.
