[PASSED QA] Bug 15607: batch patron mod - do not update dates if not given

Description Mason James 2016-01-19 19:59:42 UTC
The 'batch parton modification' tool seems to overwrite 'dateenrolled' and 'expirydate' fields with $todaysdate, if any of these fields are left unpopulated when updating

confirmed on master 8db6b0f5330f16d4e3f100987597d0ce72645d07

to test...

1/ Set 'dateenrolled' and/or 'expirydate' fields of a test user

2/ Use 'batch parton modification' tool to update any other field (eg: 'State')

3/ Confirm that user's 'dateenrolled' and/or 'expirydate' fields have been incorrectly updated to $todays date :(

[PASSED QA] Bug 15607: batch patron mod - do not update dates if not given

Bug 15332 fixed a bug but introduced a bigger one. Even if dateenrolled and
dateexpiry are not modified, they will be updated to today.
Indeed, dt_from_string returns today without parameters.

Test plan:
- Set dateenrolled and expirydate for a patron
- Using the batch patron mod tool, update any field but dateenrolled and
expirydate.
=> Without this patch, the 2 date fields should be set to today
=> With this patch applied, the 2 date fields should not have been
modified.
