Sorry for digging up an old thread -- This works as long as my iCloud calendar is Public. Notes allows me to include username and pw -- but it doesn't seem to work when I restrict access. Notes complains that it can't access the URL. How do I get this to work without letting all y'all stalk my calendar?
Any news on this? As LeftyInNC stated this works only if the calendar is public, no good idea e.g. for a family calendar.
So how can an iCloud private calendar be at least viewed from Notes?
Here is what I tested:
I opened an iCloud calender to another iCloud user, and looked at the URL in the generated invitation mail.
(I had to remove the redirect and replace these HTML characters like "
%2F" to "/")
so that the URL looked nice.
Then I tried to include it to IBM Notes Social Edition (V9.0)
Add a Calendar -> iCalendarFeed
- A private calendar
Label: my Icloud calendar
- URL: https://www.icloud.com/calendar/share/#st=e&i<THISISUSERSPECIFIC
(This URL shows the calendar when inserted into a browser window)
- Username: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Password: bla
This leads to the error: calendar unavailable: The content of this URL does not conform to the icalendar parsing specification.
If the calendar is Public the URL gets to:
and if you replace webcal with https in Notes it works, so you can see the iCloud entries.
So the problem is solved for public calendars, but what about private?
Hello helpful internet people,
I too, am trying to resolve this problem. Lotus 8.5 allows you to add an iCal feed. It gives you the option of selecting public or private calendar, however when I try to connect to a private calendar I get this message when I have over the yellow exclamation mark next to the newly added calendar.
"The content of this URL does not conform to the icalendar parsing specification."
I am using the URL that I sent to myself with an invitation to join a private my own private iCalendar:
https://www.icloud.com/calendar/share/#st=e&i=2_GE3D.....removed for security ...................
1. What is the URL format that Lotus is looking for?
2. Where can you find your iCalendar URL for a private calendar.
Has anyone solved this problem?
