Outlook Connector display of calendar permissions not consistent with Communications Express (UWC) and Convergence (Doc ID 1302618.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 11, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Connector for Microsoft Outlook - Version: 7.3u1 and later   [Release: 7.0 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Given a calendar "cal1" that has permissions granted to "all users" for "availability" and "invite".

In Outlook Connector, login as the owner of "cal1", and grant permission to a specific user "test5" for "availability" only (not "invite").

The resulting access control entries (ACEs):

# ./cscal -v list test1@my.sun.com:cal1
...
aces=@@o^a^rsf^g;@@o^p^rw^g;@@o^c^wdeic^g;test5@my.sun.com^a^f^g;test5@my.sun.com^c^^g;test5@my.sun.com^p^r^g;@^a^sf^g;@^c^^g;@^p^r^g
...

The display in Outlook Connector is inconsistent with Communications Express (UWC) and Convergence:

- opening the calendar permissions in Outlook Connector again, it displays "availability" and "invite" access for user "test5".

- Communications Express and Convergence display the calendar permissions as "availability" only (no "invite") for user "test5".
