I'm using Kibana 7.5.0.
I'm working on a TSVB Table, where my Group by field is a date field (with mapping "type" : "date"). That date field is displaying in the TSVB Table with format like "Apr 9, 2020 @ 00:00:00.000".
When in the Visualize editor, when I click on the date field column header (and see the up and down arrow), the column does successfully sort (both ascending or descending).
If I then Save, and reload the Visualize editor, that date field is no longer sorted properly (seems to be in random order).
I found the following open tickets in Github, but none are resolved yet:
- https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/49626 (slightly different issue that is also affecting me)
Can anyone confirm they are seeing this issue?
Are there any known workarounds?
These sorting issues in the TSVB Table make it almost unusable for end users (if they don't know that they have to manually sort the column, they could misinterpret the results).
