Removed Category On An Event In Outlook Connector Calendar Remains Visible For Subscribed User (Doc ID 1441064.1)

Removed category on event in OC calendar remains visible for subscribed user.

In Outlook Connector, you have the possibility to add colour categories to events. When a user is subscribed to another user's calendar, this user can also see the categories being added to the event.
But when the owner removes all categories, this is not picked up correctly in the view of the subscribed user.

The following shows an example of where this goes wrong :

UserA and UserB are 2 Outlook Connector users. The calendar of UserA is shared, and UserB is subscribed to UserA calendar.

It seems that the update of the colour categories is not working properly when the last colour category has been removed.

Also, when UserA would have removed the Yellow and Red Category at the same time, these 2 colour categories would have remained in the view of UserB.

However, when UserB has full rights on the calendar of UserA, UserB could remove the colour categories. If this is done, then UserA would see the correct removal of the colour categories in his calendar.

This issue only appears in the view of the subscribed user and when
all categories have been removed.
