Description
With the firewall policy rule setting 'set schedule-timeout disabled', a FortiGate immediately forces the session to end when the 'Stop Time' of a recurring 'schedule' object is reached.

Additional configuration steps are required in order to keep the session active until is finished or expired.

Solution
Through the CLI, follow the steps given below:

1) Edit the firewall policy rule
# config firewall policy
# edit <ID of the policy>
# set schedule-timeout disabled
# set firewall-session-dirty check-new
# end

2) Edit system settings
# config system settings
# set firewall-session-dirty check-policy-option
# end

The status of the session will change to 'persistent' once the end time of the schedule is reached and the traffic continues flowing.
