Field Definition Type Required

Role Role of the user; options are:
  • none: Provides no access.

  • freeBusyReader: Provides read access to free/busy information.

  • reader: Provides read access to the calendar. Private events will appear to users with reader access, but event details will be hidden.

  • writer: Provides read and write access to the calendar. Private events will appear to users with writer access, and event details will be visible.

  • A 403 Forbidden error indicates that the HTTP request wasn't processed because the necessary permissions were missing.
