PO08903, WorkItem:266729 - User cannot edit the placement start or end dates to any overlapping value due to a validation message


Issue Description:


When a user edits the start or end date of an existing placement with a provider that has multiple places configured to accommodate the placement of multiple clients, the following validation message may be displayed: 'This place is not available for the placement period specified. Placement cannot be done'. This can happen despite there being places available for the update period of time specified.


User Interface Impact: No




  1. Configure a Child Welfare foster care provider with two or more available places.


Steps to Reproduce:


  1. Login as a Child Welfare Structured Decision-Making caseworker.
  2. Register two children, Child1 and Child2.
  3. Create Ongoing Cases for both children.
  4. On Child1's Ongoing Case, navigate to Removals and Placements and select the New Removal page action.
  5. Create a home removal record from 1/1/2020. Click Save and Place.
  6. Specify the placement details for foster care for the period 1/1/2020 - 1/15/2020.
  7. On the provider search page, select the provider configured earlier.
  8. Repeat steps 4-8 for Child2, creating a removal and placement in the same provider for the period 1/16/2020 onwards rather than 1/1/2020-1/15/2020.
  9. Go to the Placement record for Child2. Modify the start date of the placement from 1/16/2020 to 1/10/2020 and click Save.
  10. Issue: The modify fails with the message 'This place is not available for the placement period specified. Placement cannot be done'.




The placement modification logic was incorrectly attempting to place both children in the same place within the foster care provider, rather than one child in each available place. This issue has been corrected so that a modification of this type will result in Child2 being moved to the other available place in the foster care provider.
