Page properties report doesn't sort by date properly

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      NOTE: This bug report is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      Summary

      Page properties report macro is not sorting DD/MM/YYYY in the proper order; that is, going by month year first, then month, then day. Instead, it is sorting in alpha-numeric order.

      Environment

      • Confluence
      • Page Properties Macros 4.3.1

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Create a few pages with a table including a date in one column with typing //
      2. Add a common label to those pages.
      3. Create a new page with Page Properties Report Macro and include the date column

      Expected Results

      • With date format MM/DD/YYYY attempt to sort; should sort in logical order.

      Actual Results

      • In some cases, will sort alpha-numeric order instead.
      • In the original example, it was the simple DD MMM YYYY, however, I have also seen the issue only when switching browser language to German and allowing confluence to switch to German
