This ER is to allow Array NoCase functions to search for any object case-insensitively.

History: CF-3316776 was fixed incorrectly, IMO. Searching for complex objects should've been fixed instead of removed.

Suggestion: If the 2nd parameter to the Array NoCase functions isn't a callback, then they should do JSON comparisons.

Pseudo code, using ArrayFindNoCase() as an example:

numeric function ArrayFindNoCase(required array array, required any value) {
	var result = 0;
	for(var i=1; i<=ARGUMENTS.array.len(); i++) {
		if(serializeJSON(ARGUMENTS.array[i]) == serializeJSON(value)) {
			result = i;
	return result;

This would fix Array's NoCase functions to behave as always expected, b/c searching case-insensitively for a non-simple value is just as useful as searching for it case-sensitively.

Hi Aaron , We removed searching of complex objects back in Cf 2016 and have not got any request to get it back . Also , for searches like these we introduced the support of callbacks with all ArrayFind* , ArrayContains* & ArrayDelete* functions. Developers could use these callbacks for searching objects in an array. Please let us know if there is any strong usecase for supportingĀ  this. Thanks & Regards, Suchika
