IssueGlobal Values List (GVL) do not keep their custom sort when packaged in RSA Archer 5.5.3 and earlier.
Steps to reproduce:
  1. Create a new GVL in an Application in one Instance. Set a custom sort. Do not add to Layout.
  2. Package the Application and install Package in another Instance. By doing this, we simulated having the same GVL in both environments.
  3. Move the GVL to Layout in second Instance.
  4. Package from second Instance and install in first Instance.
  5. Open the Application in the first Instance. Notice that the custom sort order has been changed even though it was the same in both.
CauseThe issue is caused by processing the target Values List Values in the order of Id rather than the sort order. It is fixed in and newer.
ResolutionUpgrade to Archer or newer.
If using affected versions of RSA Archer:
  1. Upgrade to non-affected version of RSA Archer
  2. Re-order GVLs of affected imported application Packages post-import.
