i have a custom field with the multiselect type. I have added some options and some test cases already use one or more of these options.
Now I realised that it would be smarter to have the options of the multiselect sorted alphabetically, but I don’t dare to rearrange them as this might break test cases ?!
Is it safe - or to what degree is it safe to rearrange the options ?
I assume that given the following state
1, something 2, foo 3, bar
I cannot simply leave the numbers as they are - so
1, bar 2, foo 3, something
would probably break things, right
I hope this would be ok
3, bar 2, foo 1, something
so rearrange the options, but keep the indices - is this possible ? is this a non-breaking change ?
Of course its not the optimal solution, as new options will be placed somewhere in the ordering, with numbers completely off any ordering.
But I assume there is no other way to display them sorted, maybe ? So that the customs field sort them when displaying ?
