For sorting the data in the GetItems action of SharePoint you have to specify the column name followed by the sortorder type.


Example : I want to sort column called ID in descending order then I can specify the Odata query as "ID desc


Columnname sortordertype (Ex: asc for ascending, desc for descending)



If the information shared helps you please consider giving a thumbs up 👍 and mark solution as resolved
