Outlook Connector: Deleting An Event Out Of A Series In Subscribed Calendar Changes Organizer (Doc ID 2043819.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Connector for Microsoft Outlook - Version 8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When deleting a single event out of a series in a subscribed calendar, it overwrites the correct Organizer.  This leads to a defective event in the Organizer's calendar and even worse, cancels the complete series in the Attendee's calendar.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open Outlook and log in as user A
   a.  Subscribe to calendar B with write access

2.  Right click in calendar B, choose "new event"
    a.  enter a Subject and Location
    b.  open Recurrence, choose daily, end after 10 events.
    c.  open "invite attendees"
    d.  open planning
    e.  choose user A (own calendar) and user C

3.  Click "Send"

If asked "Do you want to synchronize your own calendar" - Click No.

Observation: Correct series has been created.
Organizer is User B (on behalf)

Sample: (user A: "test-test", User B: "test2.test2")

Additionally, in calendar A and calendar B the whole series appears as cancelled.
