    calendar problem with lightning in 7.0.0

    Hi,

    i found a strange behaviour in zarafa-ical 7.0.0 with mozilla-thunderbird 5.0 / lightning 1.0b4
    - User A has granted User B any rights or for his Calendar.
    - User A creates a Calendar Entry without Privacy-Flag
    - User B sees this entry as "Private Appointment"
    - User A reopens/saves this entry again
    - User B now sees the entry as expected

    Also all old Calendar-Entries (after Upgrade from 6.40 to 7.0) are displayed as
    "Private Appointment" to allowed Users until re-open/re-save.

    Regards
    Chris

    Hi Chris,

    I have tested your issue and could reproduce it with the following steps:

    1. UserA has granted UserB secretary rights for his calendar.
    2. UserB creates an appointment in the calendar of userA
    result: The appointment subject is shown as 'private appointment'.
    3. UserA opens the appointment and change some details.
    4. UserB reloads the calendar
    result: The changes that were made by userA in step 3 are now also shown by userB

    I could not reproduce the issue if userA created the appointment in step 2.

    Regards,

    Re: calendar problem with lightning in 7.0.0

    I have exactly the same problem with Sunbird (v0.9) and with iCal (v4.0.4) too.
    Is there any awareness or hint regarding this issue?

    'Grüezi' to everybody

    The scenery:
    -ZCP v7.0.0 on CentOS v5.6, User Authentication by OpenLDAP, iCal (CalDAV) service on port 8443.
    -2 Users 'UserA' and 'UserB'
    -Both users have their own and the other users calendar configured in Apple iCal as CalDAV accounts
    ( and )
    -UserA gives UserB 'Secretary' rights on his calendar (and vice versa)

    And now the show begins:
    -UserA adds an event to his own calendar
    -UserB sees a 'Private Appointment' in UserA's calendar
    -As soon as UserA updates the very same event once, it gets fully visible (title, place, notes, …) for other users.

    Even if UserB enters an event to UserA's calendar, the entry will change to a 'Private Appointment' after a 'Refresh' on UserB's view to UserA's calendar.

    There is no problem if the event is entered in WebAccess and also the events always show up there as they should (no 'Private Appointment' in other users calendar).

    You hopefully may reproduce this strange behavior. If you need more information, please let me know.

    Re: calendar problem with lightning in 7.0.0

    Hi,

    it also affects other scenerys:

    System: Zarafa 7.0.1-28479 on Fedora 15, ical-gateway running on port 8080

    UserA is sharing a Calendar to UserB
    UserA or UserB writes event to User A's calendar
    The event it shown as "Private Appointment" for UserB, UserA can see the correct Appointment
    The checkbox for private Appointments is not set in both users calendars. (Before and after creating the appointment)
    UserA or UserB can now edit the event (in case of USerB remove the text "Private Appointment" and enter a new text) and save the appointment again
    Now the correct Appointment is shown for both Users

    I tried it with Owners and Secretary rights, affects both
    If UserA creates "real" private appointments UserB cannot edit them
    The "unreal" private appointsments can be changed by UserB.

    The bug seems to affect only writing new events with lightning/sunbird, which are not explicit private appointments. Version of lightning/sunbird does not matter.

    Re: calendar problem with lightning in 7.0.0

    If you create appointments in lightning/sunbird via selecting the time you need for it in the calendar, lighting creates an nameless appointment and renames it. It will be shown correct in zarafa then.

    If you rightclick on the calendar to get the context menu to add a new appointment, the appointment will be created as is should be without renaming, so the bug appears.

    Maybe, that is the issue, that you cannot reproduce it with lightning/sunbird.

    Felix

    P.S.:With the "private appointment" Thunderbird 6 with the latest lightning is also affected.
