Configure the Order of Parametric Fields

You can change the order in which parametric fields appear in the sidebar.

To configure the order of parametric fields

  1. Go to the Find home directory.
  2. Open config.json in a text editor.
  3. In the parametricOrder section, list the fields in the order in which you want them to appear. For example:

    parametricOrder: [company, author, category]


    The names of the parametric fields need to match the IDOL field name.

  4. Save the file, and then restart Find to apply your configuration changes.

Any parametric fields that you list in the parametricOrder section appear at the top of the list.

If you do not specify a parametric order, by default the fields are listed alphabetically.

If there are parametric fields that you did not list in the parametricOrder section, these appear after the ordered fields, in the default sort order (that is, alphabetical). For example:

Date Identified

Any fields that you add to the parametric never show list do not appear in the user interface. Similarly, if you have a parametric always show list, the interface does not display any fields that you specify in the parametric order that do not appear in the always show list. See Configure Parametric Filters to Never Show or Always Show.
