Event Classes in Outlook Connector Do Not Correspond with Event Classes in UWC/Convergence

Oracle Communications Connector for Microsoft Outlook - Version 7.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Event Classes in Outlook Connector do not appear to correspond with the Event Classes in UWC/Convergence
When using UWC (and Convergence), the user has 3 possibilities to mark an event:
Time and date only
When choosing one of the 3 options, the event is stored in the calendar server (6.3) with the following CLASS: parameters:
Public event => CLASS:PUBLIC
Private event => CLASS:PRIVATE
Time and date only => CLASS:CONFIDENTIAL
So far, so good.
In Outlook Connector you only have the option to mark the event as Private (button Private when creating the event). So, you can create 2 types of events, normal/public events and private events. But, when checking how these events are stored in the calendar server, you get this:
Normal/public event => CLASS:PUBLIC
Private event => CLASS:CONFIDENTIAL
So, a private event in UWC/Convergence is not the same as a private event in Outlook Connector. It is not possible in Outlook Connector to create an event from the class private.
