Your tenant has the role code as a Test Tenant.

As per system design, the test tenant is to be used to test functionality and features before finally moving to the Production tenant. This allows the development team and the end users to review configurations and behaviour before moving the changes / PDI solutions.

If the tenant where you are scheduling is a Test Tenant, there is a check in the application process which will limit the amount of time you can schedule an MDR to recur. The limit is a maximum End Date of 60 days greater than the Start Date. This is to avoid unnecessary execution fo MDR's for a prolonged period of time.


To resolve this issue, you should apply an End Date that is within the specified time frame.
