The organization UI does not sort the overall result before breaking results into pages. Instead its retrieving a page of results and applying the sort to that, which is misleading and useless.
For example, we have a few hundred projects. One of which is a program/script templates project thats naturally going to have lots of duplication. Its currently at about 70%. If I go to the organization project list and sort by duplication descending, this project does not show up in the list, because the sort is only being applied to the 1st page of results that I’m being shown. There’s no way to reliably see the worst or best for any one stat once you have more projects than the page size.
Not sure if entirely related but this is probably causing a problem for anyone using the project search web api as well. That also should be sorting before breaking the overall result into pages.
