In this video, learn how to model sort options for collections in a REST API.
- [Instructor] The navigation properties on the paged collection resource give clients a way to move through the collection, but what if the client wants to sort the collection by a particular field. Let's look at how we could design a simple sort syntax that feels natural in our RESTful API. If a client gets a collection without any extra parameters, a default or natural sort is implied. If the request includes an orderBy parameter, that field is used to sort the collection. The sort order can be reversed by including a token that indicates descending order.
This means that ascending order will be implied unless otherwise specified. Finally the client should be able to send multiple orderBy parameters to sort on multiple fields. All right, let's go ahead and build this functionality into the Landon Hotel API.
