1) Create new authority record, define type as "Person"
2) Navigate to Browse > Authority records. Ensure that sort is by "Most recent"
New authority record does not appear on first (or last) page of results. In fact, without a dedicated search bar for authority records, I couldn't find my new record anywhere in the Browse page, as there are over a thousand pages.
The newest authority record is shown as the first result when browsing authority records and sorting by "Most recent"
Also we really need that dedicated search bar back.

This should be fixed now. But we still have the same limitations that we have in the alphabetic sort for information objects (#5173).
Maybe we can close both and create a new one to tweak/improve how ElasticSearch alphabetic order works, and add it to the 2.1 target.

- Status changed from In progress to Verified
Any remaining issues with the sort have to do with the default alphabetic sorting in ElasticSearch - i.e., how accented letters are handled, how quotations are handled etc. Will open a new issue to consider revising ElasticSearch's defaults in another issue as this can be improved to better match user expectations for a "natural sort" order - but marking this verified, as the sort order now works.
Any record recently edited and saved will now show up at the top of the "Most recent" sort order. Users can change to alphabetic sort and back.
