Validation rules behavior incorrect while running a test case



A case type is present on an application with a validation rule. This validation rule verifies with the DOBYear text property's value is in between 1900 and the current year. If the condition is satisfied, then the validation passes and the case is created correctly. This works fine while running a case. No validation error occurs on providing correct values in the case. However, while running a recorded test case, validation errors occur for the same set of recorded values.
