    4. (Optional) Select a Sort By option to set the attribute to use to aggregate the report details. If you do not select an attribute to sort by, the report will return the first N number of results without any aggregation. Select a Group By attribute to use as an anchor for grouping data. The following example shows a report with Group By set to App Category and Sort By set to a Count of Top 5.
