Permissions needed to access shared Calendar in OWA
Posted on 2008-10-09
Hello, I am attempting to open a persons shared calendar through OWA w/ Exchange 2007. I understand once given the rights, you would log into OWA, then add /userID/calendar to the end of the URL (ie: webmail.com/exchange/person1/calendar ). The permissions have been granted to the person using the following steps within Outlook 2007 client:
Right click the calendar > properties > permissions > add user (pulls from global address list) > grant publishing editor rights (so the person can accept/decline meetings) > apply > ok.
Then we have the user with the rights attempt to access this through webmail with no luck, continue to get permission denied (you do not have permission to open this mailbox)
I thought maybe at least some permissions needed to be granted higher up the chain at the mailbox level, I have tried this with no luck so far.
Disregard, found the answer.
Added /?cmd=contents&f=calendar to the end of the URL instead of just /calendar.
Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks.
