Output Fields

  • Fields

    • Type: The type of the event - will most often return as "calendar#event" given that this is a calendar event.

    • Event ID: Unique ID of the event from which you want to get information.

    • Status: Status of the event. Optional. Possible values are:

      • confirmed - The event is confirmed. This is the default status.

      • tentative - The event is tentatively confirmed.

      • canceled - The event is cancelled.

    • Html Link: An absolute link to this event in the Google Calendar Web UI. Read-only.

    • Created Time: The date and time at which the event was created in ISO format: YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss+00:00. The +00:00 is the timezone offset.

    • ICalUID: Event unique identifier as defined in RFC5545. It is used to uniquely identify events accross calendaring systems and must be supplied when importing events via the import method.
