Jira issue originally created by user ibiryukov:

The sample query (I want to bring a specific item to the top of the list).
mysql> select * from Language order by name='English' desc, name asc limit 5;
| id | name |
| 82 | English |
| 73 | Albanian |
| 74 | Arabic |
| 75 | Armenian |
| 76 | Bengali |
5 rows in set (0.00 sec)

In theory, the code below should generate the same query.
->addOrderBy("'english'", 'desc')
->addOrderBy('', 'asc');

In practice, an exception is thrown.
Doctrine\ORM\Query\QueryException: [Syntax Error] line 0, col 67: Error: Expected end of string, got '=' (uncaught exception) at /vendor/doctrine/orm/lib/Doctrine/ORM/Query/QueryException.php line 44

Attached, SQL dump for the table & data


Comment created by @beberlei:

Its supported by including the condition in the SELECT clause, aliasing it, then using it. You might need to use "AS HIDDEN name" to prevent it from appearing in the result
