Archived - Mac OS X Server v10.6: How to delegate access to resources and locations for the iCal Server

Resources and Locations for the iCal Service in Mac OS X Server v10.6 are managed in iCal Server Utility. To provide delegation for these resources you need to use the command line tool called calendarserver_manage_principals.

To delegate read and write access of a resource to a group use the following command, where groupname is the name of the group and resourcename is the name of the resource:

sudo calendarserver_manage_principals --add-write-proxy groups:groupname resources:resourcename
 

To delegate read access of a resource to a group use the following command, where groupname is the name of the group and resourcename is the name of the resource:

sudo calendarserver_manage_principals --add-read-proxy groups:groupname resources:resourcename


To delegate read and write access of a resource to a group use the following command, where groupname is the name of the group and locationname is the name of the location:

sudo calendarserver_manage_principals --add-write-proxy groups:groupname locations:locationname

To delegate read access of a location to a group use the following command, where groupname is the name of the group and locationname is the name of the location:

sudo calendarserver_manage_principals --add-read-proxy groups:groupname locations:locationname


Once you have delegated access to resource or location, a client can view it in iCal via iCal > Preferences > Accounts > Delegation and selecting "Show" beside each resource and location.

Additional Information

When adding delegation to a resource or location it is important to make sure that the name of a location or resource does not match the name of a group or user  that exists in your directory.  For more information regarding calendarserver_manage_principals, please see its man page in Mac OS X Server v10.6.
