Core Controller filtering and sorting without any code modifications

System Information
  • Strapi Version: v4.13.4
  • Node Version: v16.16.0

Hey there,
I want to use the power of Strapi as much. as I can. I want to understand what I am allowed to do with the out-of-the-box Controllers in relation with filtering and sorting.

I have a Content-Type Post and another Content Type related to it called Like.
I see that in my swagger, I visit my Post Collection, I navigate to the Get ( Many items) action and then I can pass the populate ‘likes’ in the Post, and all likes of the post are returned.

I want to populate the likes relationship as count, and then return all posts with like count descending.
Is this something that can be done without the use of creating custom controllers + services to accommodate this functionality?

Thank you in advance
