Users are unable to create new schedules or edit existing ones for products if the “End Date” has been previously removed.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a product with the Status set to disable.
  2. Add a scheduled update to enable this product.
    • Add future start and end dates.
  3. Edit the scheduled update by removing the End Date.
  4. Edit the schedule again and try to add an End Date. An error will occur.
  5. Refresh the page and again go to Edit Scheduled Update.
  6. Click Remove from update > Delete the update.
  7. Now you should not see the scheduled update on top of the product edit page.
  8. Try to create a new scheduled update overlapping the previous duration.

Expected results:

  • There is no error in step 4. The admin is able to update the scheduled update without any error as the schedule is not yet active.
  • The admin user is able to delete the previous update and create a new one.

Actual results:

Users get the following error message:

error: Future Update already exists in this time range. Set a different range and try again.
