[Archivesspace_Users_Group] "Server Error" when trying to edit Digital Objects with inclusive dates

Hi Joanna,

I speculate you may have accidentally created an invalid date type for those DOs with inclusive dates when you created them via the importer. To test this theory, navigate to System > Manage Controlled Value Lists > Date Type (date_type) and see if you have an extra date type there. This is a common issue that I see when using the spreadsheet importers.

Unfortunately, if you do have an invalid date type on those records, I do not believe there is any way to solve this from within the interface; I’ve found solutions through the API and the database directly. You do mention that you can delete the DOs; that’s another solution.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] "Server Error" when trying to edit Digital Objects with inclusive dates

Hi all,

I am experiencing an issue editing digital object records in ASpace that have inclusive dates. They import fine in a CSV file, but when I go in to edit them in ASpace, I get a "Server Error" message and am unable to edit metadata (although the digital objects can be deleted from ASpace). See reference image below for a visual example. I was able to determine that this problem only happens with digital objects that have inclusive dates, but I can't find any reference to this issue by any other users. I am not experiencing this problem with single date digital objects.

Has anyone else encountered this? Any solution ideas? I am a lone arranger, so any input is welcome :)
