Components: General Server

Versions: 2016

Failure Type: Incorrectly functioning

Found In Build/Fixed In Build: ColdFusion (2016 release) Update 4 (release date April 25, 2017) /

Problem Description:
Functionality change from Updater 3 to Updater 4 caused JavaScript load with parameters to stop sending argumentcollection

Steps to Reproduce:
The following JavaScript code was working properly prior to updater 4.
args = JSON.stringify(data);
panel.load('/com/cms/admin.cfc?method=displaySlideOut', {argumentcollection:args}, function() {

Actual Result: Arguments struct does not contain any of the parameters defined in the passed argumentcollection  (Attachment: CF2016-update4-broken.jpg)

Expected Result: Parameters passed to argumentcollection appear as arguments in the called function. (Attachment: CF2016-update3-working.jpg)

You can see in the attached screenshots that the arguments struct is not being populated. 
Note: arguments.a and arguments.action are defined in the application.cfc

Any Workarounds: If I change my code and list each item as an individual parameter it works. I rolled back to updater 3 and everything works properly again.

panel.load('/com/cms/admin.cfc?method=displaySlideOut', {test:1}, function() {

This properly passes argument Test = 1

Hi Eric, Can you please share reproducible code and if possible admin.cfc file and panel.load functionality? Thanks, Manas

I have uploaded an index.cfm and admin.cfc file that work on Update 3, but not after the update 4. Thanks, Eric
