Steps to reproduce:

  1. Add any three options to the existing color attribute.

  2. Create six simple products with options (Example: Option 1: 1 product, Option 2: 2 products, Option 3: 3 products).

  3. Create a category and assign all the products created above.

  4. Now make the following GraphQL request with your category id:

    code language-graphql
         filter: { category_id: { eq: "3" } }
         pageSize: 200
         currentPage: 1
         sort: { name: ASC }
       ) {
         aggregations {
           options {
         items {
  5. Now alter the sort order of attribute options from the attribute edit page in the Admin.

  6. Make the above GraphQL request again, and observe the color attribute options.

Expected results:

The attribute options are sorted according to the order set from the Admin.

Actual results:

The attribute options are always sorted according to the associated number of products.
