It seems the new ccm application advanced properties for "Planning" in version 4.0.7 and 5.0:
    com.ibm.team.apt.internal.service.rest.PlanRestService
    com.ibm.team.apt.internal.service.rest.stable.VSClientPlanRestService
Which says " enables the sort order for plan search result in ascending order".

planning propeties

Q1) One of our customers is testing upgrade from 4.0.4 to 5.0, we would like to make sure which functions does this properties affect to?
I have verified so far:
  Plan Result in Plan dashboard widget.
  Result in quick search by plan.

Q2) What is "VSClientPlanRestService" for?

Q3) If I change the value for "PlanRestService", the value "VSClientPlanRestService" also is changed automatically to the same value. Is this worked as expected?

Q4) Any work item record or documentations for these properties? 
(I searched but could not found.)

Accepted answer

By default the plan search result is in descending order and this property is to make the result in ascending order. this is the result of the below workitem:

The feature seems to be available from v4.0.6.

In v5.0, this search feature has been improved a lot:

It's mentioned in the RTC 4.0.6 release note.

Sort order change of iterations when browsing plans

To make it easier to find the most relevant plans, the All Plans, Current Plans, and My Current Plans pages now display iterations from newest to oldest.

I believe the options there allow you to revert the behavior back to the old way.

With my limited knowledge, PlanRestService should be the one to convert the data into REST Data feed so you can access Plan date using associated REST API. In the similar manner VSClientPlanRestService should provide the similar feature.

The option is to display sorted output in ascending but never tried myself :)

Typo - Plan date -> Plan data
