I've seen a couple threads that ask much the same question, and I've tried the solutions for those issues, but I'm still running into a problem.
I'm testing the store method for a controller by posting an array of data to it. I pass it null for a
scheduled_for array key in the test. The store method on the controller accepts a
StoreModelRequest Form Request, and inside that, I have a
rules array that declares
scheduled_for => 'nullable|date|after:now rules.
When I'm testing, this rule is failing with the custom message
You need to schedule this for a future date and time. When I'm submitting this form via the application's UI and pass
scheduled_for a value of null, the
after:now rule passes, as I expect it to.
->nullable() in the model's table schema for the
scheduled_for column. I have tried to use the
sometimes validation rule alongside the
nullable validation rule inside the
StoreModelRequest Form Request, and this doesn't make a difference.
I'm using Laravel 5.6.
What could be causing this?
