Order and Top K

Arcadia Instant enables you to adjust the sort order of values by implementing ORDER BY clause on the query. You may also choose to limit the number of records displayed to examine the most significant entries, implemented through LIMIT clause.

Follow these steps:

  1. Click on the field you plan to modify, to open the Field Properties menu.
  2. Under Field Properties, click to expand the Order and Top K menu.

  3. From the Order and Top K menu, select from the following options.

    • Descending sorts [field] in descending order.
    • Ascending sorts [field] in ascending order.
    • Top K displays only the number of values you specify, starting from the top of the specified sort.

      Note that this setting overrides the Limit shelf setting. So, if the value of Limit is 100 and Top K is set to 50, the query returns 50 rows.

    • Bottom K displays only the number of values you specify, starting from the bottom of the specified sort.

      This setting overrides the Limit shelf setting. If the value of Limit is 100 and Bottom K is set to 50, the query returns 50 rows.

    Valid choices are: [ Descending | Ascending | None ] AND [ Top K | Bottom K | None ]

  4. A checkmark precedes the selected option.
