Using structs in Find item in Array node in BP should return index of single connected split pin

Kind of a long thread title I guess, but I think there should be a way to get values from a struct array when you know one of the values without using a for loop. For example you’ve got a scalar parameter struct array from a constant material instance (forgot the real name), but it has Name and a Float values. Let’s say I know that the Name is Metallic. I then want to find out what index this has in the array so I can replace it by using Set Scalar Parameter.

Right now I need to use a for loop to do this because if I try to use Find and Get it doesn’t work because both values in the structs don’t match. Or maybe it doesn’t work if you split the struct pin, no idea.
