Hi all,
Anyone got a clue how to format the 'custom_order' parameter of a dataset search query to sort by sub-fields of a compound field?

i.e. - running a search over the 'user' dataset and I want to sort the results by name_family then name_given of the compound 'name' field.

Currently running (based on the search method from http://wiki.eprints.org/w/API:EPrints/DataSet#Object_Methods ):

$list = $ds->search( {"custom_order" => "name_given/name_family" };

But it doesn't seem to be sorting the list at all
