Since upgrading to Foglight version 5.5.8, it is not possible to sort table views in custom reports/dashboards. When changing the box labeled "Order by" on the "Filter" tab of the "Properties" view and clicking on "Apply", nothing happens. When going back to the "Properties" view, nothing has been saved.
STATUS: WCF-9647 is listed as resolved in the 5.6.2 Release Notes. Updating to F5.6.2 or later resolves this issue.
