Timer Boundary Event and optional Due Date

Hi,

I have a very simple use case I can't manage to resolve :
I have a validation workflow, with an optional due date. I put a Timer Boundary Event on the validation user task, leading to a reminder notification (service) task when the due date is reached. The problem is this due date is optional, and an error is thrown when it is not specified.

Can I force the timer not to be executed when there is no due date ? AFAIK there is no execution condition on the timer…

Even if I set a dummy due date (like 1/1/1970), the timer is executed. I could set a far away date instead but I find that a bit dirty too…
Is there a solution or another workaround ?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Tony.
