2552416 - Background information import: Date Validation issue


Customer is trying to import Background information with date prior 01/01/1900

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Import Extended user information and select background information

  2. Select your csv file with a date prior to year 1900

  3. The system is not saving information (give an error invalid StartDate)
  4. NOTE: It is saving correctly on People profile or Employee profile page.




This is an expected behavior, there is no date validation on UI, you could save date like 1897/01/01.

However, there is date validation on importing background. Year before 1900 is not allowed.
