Sorting results
How to request a specific sort for the results of a collection of resources
When you fetch a collection of resources, you can request a specific sort for the results, using the sort query parameter.
The value of the sort parameter must be a comma-separated list of fields. Pay attention to avoid whitespaces before or after each comma.
The sort order for each field is ascending unless prefixed with a - (minus) in which case it's descending.
