[VERY_UNLIKELY] Graphql OrderBy: Random

Hi Sebastian,

It would be nice to bring the random feature to the graphql side.

E.g:

queryProductContents(take: 5, orderby: RANDOM) {flatData{bla bla…}

So when I want to get 5 random product items, I can achieve this.

I think no database supports it. The only option in your case would to pick 100 items or so and then select 5 of these.

In fact, the use of fetching random data from the requested database does not have to be with ‘orderby’. (take:5, random:true) can be added as feature.

sorry i can’t see “no database support.” :pray:

What do you mean with that?

Ok. I will do as you suggest. Thank you.
