Perspective Alarm Status Table activeSortOrder - What is this for?

The user manual description doesn’t make sense in describing what exactly this does and how to use it:

I want to sort alarms by state (ActiveUnack, ActiveAcked, ClearUnacked, ClearAcked), time (latest to oldest), then by priority (highest to lowest) in this order.

activeSortOrder is a user-defined list of Alarm Status Table column names, where the lowest index within the list will be driving value to sort on, and then equal values will be sorted by the next index.

So for your use-case of sorting by state, time, and then priority, you should have something like this:

and you should make sure that the sort property for each of these columns is “descending”.
