[Archivesspace_Users_Group] PUI Ordering and Sorting Issue

Are you using the built-in Solr search engine that comes with 
ArchivesSpace 3.0.1? If so, your sorting problems could be because it 
uses a very old version, because newer ones aren't compatible with the 
method of embedding it in a bigger application. But there is the option 
to configure ArchivesSpace to use an external Solr service:


That allows you to run a more up-to-date version, which would enable use 
of the solr.ICUCollationField class for sort fields. That can be 
adjusted to sort different languages according to their own sorting 
rules, as described here:


ArchivesSpace 3.2.0 removes the built-in Solr, so running an external 
Solr service will be necessary if you upgrade in the future.

As for adding the option to sort on identifiers, I don't think there is 
a configuration option or simple interface for adding them. But it would 
probably be possible to develop a plug-in to override certain Ruby 
methods in the core code to do it.
