Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


1.  Introduction

   This document specifies extensions to the CalDAV "calendar-access"
   [RFC4791] feature to enable scheduling of iCalendar-based [RFC5545]
   calendar components between Calendar Users.

   This extension leverages the scheduling methods defined in the
   iCalendar Transport-independent Interoperability Protocol (iTIP)
   [RFC5546] to permit Calendar Users to perform scheduling operations
   such as schedule, reschedule, respond to scheduling request or cancel
   calendar components, as well as search for busy time information.
   However, the following iTIP [RFC5546] features are not covered:
   publishing, countering, delegating, refreshing and forwarding
   calendar components, as well as replacing the Organizer of a calendar
   component.  It is expected that future extensions will be developed
   to address these.

   This specification defines a client/server scheduling protocol, where
   the server is made responsible for sending scheduling messages and
   processing incoming scheduling messages.  The client operations of
   creating, modifying or deleting a calendar component in a calendar is
   enough to trigger the server to deliver the necessary scheduling
   messages to the appropriate Calendar Users.  This approach is
   sometimes referred to as "implicit scheduling".

   This specification does not attempt to address how scheduling might
   occur with users on different systems (either other CalDAV servers,
   or some other calendaring and scheduling system).  However, the basic
   scheduling process used here does not prevent servers from sending
   and receiving scheduling messages with "external" users based on
   alternative protocols, such as the iCalendar Message-Based
   Interoperability Protocol (iMIP) [RFC6047].

   In iTIP-based scheduling, there is an event "Organizer" whose role is
   to schedule an event between one or more "Attendees", and this is
   done by sending out invitations and handling responses from each
   Attendee.  Often times an Organizer will do a "freebusy" lookup to
   check on Attendees' availability (free-time).

   Servers supporting this specification advertise their capabilities
   and provides new collections for scheduling operations as described
   in Section 2.

   Scheduling works by having the client store iCalendar data with
   appropriate scheduling properties included ("ORGANIZER" and
   "ATTENDEE" iCalendar properties).  This is called a "Scheduling
   Operation" and fully described in Section 3.  The server detects that
   the data represents a scheduling operation (as per Section 3.1) and

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


   identifies the operation as one initiated by the Organizer or
   Attendee.  Processing of the scheduling operation, then depends on
   who is initiating the scheduling operation (as per Section 3.2.1 or
   Section 3.2.2 respectively).  In each case, one of three scheduling
   operations can take place: "create", "modify" or "remove".  Which
   operation occurs is based on the HTTP method used for the request, as
   well as a comparison between any existing iCalendar data and any new
   iCalendar data in the request (as per Section 3.2.3).

   Scheduling operations can result in scheduling messages being
   delivered to the Organizer (in the case of a reply from an Attendee)
   or to Attendees (requests and updates from the Organizer).  The
   server is responsible for processing incoming scheduling messages as
   per Section 4.

   Clients wishing to check freebusy information for calendar users do
   so using a POST request against a special collection.  An immediate
   result is returned by the server detailing freebusy information as
   per Section 5.

   Control over who is allowed to send scheduling messages, or from whom
   scheduling messages will be received or freebusy results returned to,
   is controlled via a set of access control privileges dedicated to the
   various scheduling operations that can occur as per Section 6.

   For the majority of the following discussion, scheduling of events
   will be discussed.  However, scheduling of to-dos is also fully
   supported by this specification.

   Discussion of this Internet-Draft is taking place on the mailing
   lists at <https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/caldav> and
   <http://lists.osafoundation.org/pipermail/ietf-caldav>.

1.1.  Terminology

   This specification uses much of the same terminology as iCalendar
   [RFC5545], iTIP [RFC5546], WebDAV [RFC4918], and CalDAV [RFC4791].
   The following definitions are provided to aid the reader in
   understanding this specification.

   Calendar User (CU):  An entity (often a human) that accesses calendar
      information [RFC3283].

   Calendar collection:  A resource that acts as a container of
      references to child calendar object resources [RFC4791].

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


   Calendar object resource:  A resource representing a calendar object
      (event, to-do, journal entry, or other calendar components)
      [RFC4791].

   Scheduling object resource:  A calendar object resource contained in
      a calendar collection for which the server will take care of
      sending scheduling messages on behalf of the owner of the calendar
      collection.

   Organizer scheduling object resource:  A scheduling object resource
      owned by the Organizer.

   Attendee scheduling object resource:  A scheduling object resource
      owned by an Attendee.

   Scheduling operation:  Add, change or remove operations on a
      scheduling object resource for which the server will deliver
      scheduling messages to other Calendar Users.

   Scheduling message:  A calendar object that describes a scheduling
      operation such as schedule, reschedule, reply, or cancel.

   Scheduling Outbox collection:  A resource at which busy time
      information requests are targeted.

   Scheduling Inbox collection:  A collection in which incoming
      scheduling messages are delivered.

1.2.  Notational Conventions

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

   The Augmented BNF (ABNF) syntax used by this document to specify the
   format definition of new iCalendar elements is defined in [RFC5234].

   The Augmented BNF (ABNF) syntax used by this document to specify the
   format definition of new message header fields to be used with the
   HTTP/1.1 protocol is described in Section 2.1 of [RFC2616].  Since
   this Augmented BNF uses the basic production rules provided in
   Section 2.2 of [RFC2616], these rules apply to this document as well.

   The term "protected" is used in the Conformance field of WebDAV
   property definitions as defined in Section 15 of [RFC4918].

1.3.  XML Namespaces and Processing

   This document uses XML DTD fragments ([W3C.REC-xml-20081126], Section
   3.2) as a purely notational convention.  WebDAV request and response
   bodies cannot be validated by a DTD due to the specific extensibility
   rules defined in Section 17 of [RFC4918] and due to the fact that all
   XML elements defined by that specification use the XML namespace name
   "DAV:".  In particular:

   1.  element names use the "DAV:" namespace,

   2.  element ordering is irrelevant unless explicitly stated,

   3.  extension elements (elements not already defined as valid child
       elements) can be added anywhere, except when explicitly stated
       otherwise,

   4.  extension attributes (attributes not already defined as valid for
       this element) can be added anywhere, except when explicitly
       stated otherwise.

   The XML elements specified in this document are defined in the
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav" XML namespace registered by CalDAV
   [RFC4791].

   When XML element types in the namespaces "DAV:" and
   "urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav" are referenced in this document
   outside of the context of an XML fragment, the strings "DAV:" and
   "CALDAV:" will be prefixed to the element types, respectively.

   This document inherits, and sometimes extends, DTD productions from
   Section 14 of [RFC4918].

   Also note that some CalDAV XML element names are identical to WebDAV
   XML element names, though their namespace differs.  Care needs to be
   taken not to confuse the two sets of names.

2.  Scheduling Support

   A server that supports the features described in this document MUST
   include "calendar-auto-schedule" as a field in the DAV response
   header from an OPTIONS request on any resource that supports any
   scheduling operations, properties, privileges or methods.

   To advertise support for the CalDAV "calendar-auto-schedule" feature
   a server is REQUIRED to support and advertise support for the CalDAV
   "calendar-access" [RFC4791] feature.

   This specification introduces new collection resource types that are
   used to manage scheduling object resources, and scheduling privileges
   (as per Section 6), as well as provide scheduling functionality.  It
   is the server's responsibility to create these collection resources,
   and clients have no way to create or delete them.

2.1.  Scheduling Outbox Collection

   A scheduling Outbox collection is used as the target for busy time
   information requests, and to manage privileges that apply to outgoing
   scheduling requests.

   A scheduling Outbox collection MUST report the DAV:collection and
   CALDAV:schedule-outbox XML elements in the value of the DAV:
   resourcetype property.  The element type declaration for CALDAV:
   schedule-outbox is:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-outbox EMPTY>

   Example:

      <D:resourcetype xmlns:D="DAV:">
        <D:collection/>
        <C:schedule-outbox xmlns:C="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav"/>
      </D:resourcetype>

   A scheduling Outbox collection MUST NOT be a child (at any depth) of
   a calendar collection resource.

   The following WebDAV properties specified in CalDAV "calendar-access"
   [RFC4791] MAY also be defined on scheduling Outbox collections and
   apply to scheduling messages submitted to the scheduling Outbox
   collection with the POST method:

   o  CALDAV:supported-calendar-component-set





Daboo & Desruisseaux    Expires September 8, 2012              [Page 10]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


   o  CALDAV:supported-calendar-data

   o  CALDAV:max-resource-size

   o  CALDAV:min-date-time

   o  CALDAV:max-date-time

   o  CALDAV:max-attendees-per-instance

   The use of child resources in a scheduling Outbox collection is
   reserved for future revisions or extensions of this specification.

   The following WebDAV property is defined on principal resources and
   used to locate the corresponding Outbox collection for the associated
   principal.

2.1.1.  CALDAV:schedule-outbox-URL Property

   Name:  schedule-outbox-URL

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Identify the URL of the scheduling Outbox collection owned
      by the associated principal resource.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected.

   PROPFIND behavior:  This property SHOULD NOT be returned by a
      PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be preserved in COPY
      and MOVE operations.

   Description:  This property is needed for a client to determine where
      the scheduling Outbox collection of the current user is located so
      that sending of scheduling messages can occur.  If not present,
      then the associated calendar user is not enabled for the sending
      of scheduling messages on the server.

   Definition:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-outbox-URL (DAV:href)>

2.2.  Scheduling Inbox Collection

   A scheduling Inbox collection contains copies of incoming scheduling
   messages.  These can be requests sent by an Organizer, or replies
   sent by an Attendee in response to a request.  The scheduling Inbox
   collection is also used to manage scheduling privileges.

   A scheduling Inbox collection MUST report the DAV:collection and
   CALDAV:schedule-inbox XML elements in the value of the DAV:
   resourcetype property.  The element type declaration for CALDAV:
   schedule-inbox is:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-inbox EMPTY>

   Example:

      <D:resourcetype xmlns:D="DAV:">
        <D:collection/>
        <C:schedule-inbox xmlns:C="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav"/>
      </D:resourcetype>

   Scheduling Inbox collections MUST only contain calendar object
   resources that obey the restrictions specified in iTIP [RFC5546].
   Consequently, scheduling Inbox collections MUST NOT contain any types
   of collection resources.  Restrictions defined in Section 4.1 of
   CalDAV "calendar-access" [RFC4791] on calendar object resources
   contained in calendar collections (e.g., "UID" uniqueness) do not
   apply to calendar object resources contained in a scheduling Inbox
   collection.  Thus, multiple calendar object resources contained in a
   scheduling Inbox collection can have the same "UID" property value
   (i.e., multiple scheduling messages for the same calendar component).

   A scheduling Inbox collection MUST NOT be a child (at any depth) of a
   calendar collection resource.

   The following WebDAV properties specified in CalDAV "calendar-access"
   [RFC4791] MAY also be defined on scheduling Inbox collections and
   apply to scheduling messages delivered to the collection:

   o  CALDAV:supported-calendar-component-set

   o  CALDAV:supported-calendar-data

   o  CALDAV:max-resource-size

   o  CALDAV:min-date-time

   o  CALDAV:max-date-time

   o  CALDAV:max-instances

   o  CALDAV:max-attendees-per-instance

   o  CALDAV:calendar-timezone

   The following WebDAV property is defined on principal resources and
   used to locate the corresponding Inbox collection for the associated
   principal.

2.2.1.  CALDAV:schedule-inbox-URL Property

   Name:  schedule-inbox-URL

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Identify the URL of the scheduling Inbox collection owned
      by the associated principal resource.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected.

   PROPFIND behavior:  This property SHOULD NOT be returned by a
      PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be preserved in COPY
      and MOVE operations.

   Description:  This property allows a client to determine where the
      scheduling Inbox collection of the current user is located so that
      processing of scheduling messages can occur.  If not present, then
      the associated calendar user is not enabled for reception of
      scheduling messages on the server.

   Definition:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-inbox-URL (DAV:href)>

2.3.  Calendaring Reports Extensions

   This specification extends the CALDAV:calendar-query and CALDAV:
   calendar-multiget REPORTs to return results for calendar object
   resources in scheduling Inbox collections.

   When a CALDAV:calendar-query REPORT includes a time-range query and
   targets a scheduling Inbox collection, if any calendar object



Daboo & Desruisseaux    Expires September 8, 2012              [Page 13]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


   resources contain "VEVENT" calendar components that do not include a
   "DTSTART" iCalendar property (as allowed by iTIP [RFC5546]) then such
   components MUST always match the time-range query test.

   Note that the CALDAV:free-busy-query REPORT is not supported on
   scheduling Inbox collections.

2.4.  Additional Principal Properties

   This section defines new properties for WebDAV principal resources as
   defined in [RFC3744].  These properties are likely to be protected
   but the server MAY allow them to be written by appropriate users.

2.4.1.  CALDAV:calendar-user-address-set Property

   Name:  calendar-user-address-set

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Identify the calendar addresses of the associated principal
      resource.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected.

   PROPFIND behavior:  This property SHOULD NOT be returned by a
      PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be preserved in COPY
      and MOVE operations.

   Description:  Support for this property is REQUIRED.  This property
      is needed to map calendar user addresses in iCalendar data to
      principal resources and their associated scheduling Inbox and
      Outbox collections.  In the event that a user has no well defined
      identifier for their calendar user address, the URI of their
      principal resource can be used.  This property SHOULD be
      searchable using the DAV:principal-property-search REPORT.  The
      DAV:principal-search-property-set REPORT SHOULD identify this
      property as such.  If not present, then the associated calendar
      user is not enabled for scheduling on the server.

2.4.2.  CALDAV:calendar-user-type Property

   Name:  calendar-user-type

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Identifies the calendar user type of the associated
      principal resource.

   Value:  Same values allowed for the iCalendar "CUTYPE" property
      parameter defined in Section 3.2.3 of [RFC5545].

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected.

   PROPFIND behavior:  This property SHOULD NOT be returned by a
      PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be preserved in COPY
      and MOVE operations.

   Description:  Clients can query principal resources in order to
      lookup attendees available on the server.  When doing this, it is
      useful to know, or restrict the query to, certain types of
      calendar user (e.g., only search for "people", or only search for
      "rooms").  This property MAY be defined on principal resources to
      indicate the type of calendar user associated with the principal
      resource.  Its value is the same as the iCalendar "CUTYPE"
      property parameter that can be used on "ATTENDEE" properties.
      This property SHOULD be searchable using the DAV:principal-
      property-search REPORT.  The DAV:principal-search-property-set
      REPORT SHOULD identify this property as such.

3.  Scheduling Operations

   When a calendar object resource is created, modified or removed from
   a calendar collection, the server examines the calendar data and
   checks to see whether the data represents a scheduling object
   resource.  If it does, the server will automatically attempt to
   deliver a scheduling message to the appropriate Calendar Users.
   Several types of scheduling operations can occur in this case,
   equivalent to iTIP "REQUEST", "REPLY", "CANCEL", and "ADD"
   operations.

3.1.  Identifying Scheduling Object Resources

   Calendar object resources on which the server performs scheduling
   operations are referred to as scheduling object resources.  There are
   two types of scheduling object resources: organizer scheduling object
   resources, and attendee scheduling object resources.

   A calendar object resource is considered to be a valid organizer
   scheduling object resource if the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar property is
   present and set in all the calendar components to a value that
   matches one of the calendar user addresses of the owner of the
   calendar collection.

   A calendar object resource is considered to be a valid attendee
   scheduling object resource if the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar property is
   present and set in all the calendar components to the same value and
   doesn't match one of the calendar user addresses of the owner of the
   calendar collection, and at least one of the "ATTENDEE" iCalendar
   property values matches one of the calendar user addresses of the
   owner of the calendar collection.

   The creation of attendee scheduling object resources is typically
   done by the server, with the resource being created in an appropriate
   calendar collection (see Section 4.3).

3.2.  Handling Scheduling Object Resources

   The server's behavior when processing a scheduling object resource
   depends on whether it is owned by the Organizer or an Attendee
   specified in the calendar data.

3.2.1.  Organizer Scheduling Object Resources

   An Organizer can create, modify or remove a scheduling object
   resource.  These operations are each described next, and how they are
   invoked via HTTP requests is described in Section 3.2.3.




Daboo & Desruisseaux    Expires September 8, 2012              [Page 17]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


   The Organizer of a calendar component can also be an Attendee of that
   calendar component.  In such cases the server MUST NOT send a
   scheduling message to the Attendee that matches the Organizer.

3.2.1.1.  Create

   When a scheduling object resource is created by the Organizer, the
   server will inspect each "ATTENDEE" property to determine if a
   scheduling message ought to be delivered to this Attendee according
   to the value of the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property parameter (see
   Section 7.1) as described in the table below:

              +------------------+-------------+
              | SCHEDULE-AGENT   | iTIP METHOD |
              +==================+=============+
              | SERVER (default) | REQUEST     |
              +------------------+-------------+
              | CLIENT           | --          |
              +------------------+-------------+
              | NONE             | --          |
              +------------------+-------------+

   The server MUST add a "SCHEDULE-STATUS" iCalendar property parameter
   (see Section 7.3) to the "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property in the
   scheduling object resource being created, and set its value as
   described in Section 3.2.9.  This will result in the created calendar
   object resource differing from the calendar data sent in the HTTP
   request.  As a result clients MAY reload the calendar data from the
   server in order to update to the new server generated state
   information.  Servers MUST NOT set the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" property
   parameter on the "ATTENDEE" property of Attendees for which it did
   not attempt to deliver a scheduling message.

   Restrictions:

   1.  The server SHOULD reject any attempt to set the "PARTSTAT"
       iCalendar property parameter value of the "ATTENDEE" iCalendar
       property of other users in the calendar object resource to a
       value other than "NEEDS-ACTION" if the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property
       parameter value is not present or set to the value "SERVER".

   2.  The server MAY reject attempts to create a scheduling object
       resource that specifies a "UID" property value already specified
       in a scheduling object resource contained in another calendar
       collection of the Organizer.

   3.  The server MUST take into account scheduling privileges as
       described in Section 6 when handling the creation of a scheduling



Daboo & Desruisseaux    Expires September 8, 2012              [Page 18]

       object resource.

   4.  Restrictions on calendar object resources defined in Section 4.1
       of [RFC4791] MUST also be enforced.

   The server MUST return an error with the CALDAV:allowed-organizer-
   scheduling-object-change precondition code (Section 3.2.4.3) when the
   Organizer attempts to change the iCalendar data in a manner that is
   forbidden.

3.2.1.2.  Modify

   When a scheduling object resource is modified by the Organizer, the
   server will inspect each "ATTENDEE" property in the new calendar data
   to determine which ones have the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" iCalendar property
   parameter.  It will then need to compare this with the "ATTENDEE"
   properties in the existing calendar object resource that is being
   modified.

   For each Attendee in the old and new calendar data on a per-instance
   basis, and taking into account the addition or removal of Attendees,
   the server will determine whether to deliver a scheduling message to
   the Attendee.  The following table determines whether the server
   needs to deliver a scheduling message, and if so which iTIP
   scheduling method to use.  The values "SERVER", "CLIENT", and "NONE"
   in the top and left titles of the table refer to the "SCHEDULE-AGENT"
   parameter value of the "ATTENDEE" property, and the values "<Absent>"
   and "<Removed>" are used to cover the cases where the "ATTENDEE"
   property is not present (Old) or is being removed (New).

   +---------------+-----------------------------------------------+

   The server MUST add a "SCHEDULE-STATUS" iCalendar property parameter
   to the "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property in the scheduling object
   resource being modified, and set its value as described in
   Section 3.2.9.  This will result in the created calendar object
   resource differing from the calendar data sent in the HTTP request.
   As a result clients MAY reload the calendar data from the server in
   order to update to the new server generated state information.

   Restrictions:

   1.  The server MAY reject any attempt to set the "PARTSTAT" iCalendar
       property parameter value of the "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property of
       other users in the calendar object resource to a value other than
       "NEEDS-ACTION" if the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property parameter value
       is not present or set to the value "SERVER".

   2.  The server MUST take into account scheduling privileges as
       described in Section 6 when handling the modification of a
       scheduling object resource.

   3.  Restrictions on calendar object resources defined in Section 4.1
       of [RFC4791] MUST also be enforced.

   The server MUST return an error with the CALDAV:allowed-organizer-
   scheduling-object-change precondition code (Section 3.2.4.3) when the
   Organizer attempts to change the iCalendar data in a manner that is
   forbidden.

3.2.1.3.  Remove

   When a scheduling object resource is removed by the Organizer, the
   server will inspect each "ATTENDEE" property in the scheduling object
   resource being removed to determine which ones have the "SCHEDULE-
   AGENT" iCalendar property parameter.

   For each Attendee the server will determine whether to attempt to
   deliver a scheduling message into the Attendee's scheduling Inbox
   collection, based on the table below:

              +------------------+-------------+
              | SCHEDULE-AGENT   | iTIP METHOD |

   Restrictions:

   1.  The server MUST take into account scheduling privileges as
       described in Section 6 when handling the deletion of a scheduling
       object resource.

3.2.2.  Attendee Scheduling Object Resources

   An Attendee can create, modify or remove a scheduling object
   resource.  These operations are each described next, and how they are
   invoked via HTTP requests is described in Section 3.2.3.

3.2.2.1.  Allowed Attendee Changes

   Attendees are allowed to make some changes to a scheduling object
   resource, though key properties such as start time, end time,
   location, and summary are typically under the control of the
   Organizer.

   The server MUST allow Attendees to:

   1.   change their own "PARTSTAT" iCalendar property parameter value.

   2.   add, modify or remove any "TRANSP" iCalendar properties.

   3.   add, modify or remove any "PERCENT-COMPLETE" iCalendar
        properties.

   4.   add, modify or remove any "COMPLETED" iCalendar properties.

   11.  add new components to represent overridden recurrence instances,
        provided the only changes to the recurrence instance follow the
        rules above.

   The server MUST return an error with the CALDAV:allowed-attendee-
   scheduling-object-change precondition code (Section 3.2.4.4) when the
   Attendee attempts to change the iCalendar data in a manner forbidden
   by the server.

3.2.2.2.  Create

   Typically an Attendee does not create scheduling object resources, as
   scheduling messages delivered to them on the server are automatically
   processed by the server and placed on one of their calendars (see
   Section 4).  However, in some cases a scheduling message can get
   delivered directly to the client (e.g., via email [RFC6047]), and the
   Attendee might wish to store that on the server.  In that case the
   client creates a scheduling object resource in a calendar belonging
   to the Attendee.  It can then set the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" iCalendar
   property parameter on all "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties in the
   resource to determine how the server treats the resource.  The value
   of the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" iCalendar property parameter on all
   "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties MUST be the same.

   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SCHEDULE-AGENT | Action                                           |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SERVER         | The server will attempt to process changes to    |
   | (default)      | the resource using the normal rules for attendee |
   |                | scheduling object resources.                     |
   |                |                                                  |
   | CLIENT         | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.  The client is assumed to be handling  |
   |                | Attendee replies etc.                            |
   |                |                                                  |
   | NONE           | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.                                        |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+

   In some cases a server might not be able to process an Attendee
   scheduling object resource that originated from another system (i.e.,
   where the server is unable to deliver scheduling messages to the
   Organizer).  In such cases the server MUST add a "SCHEDULE-STATUS"
   iCalendar property parameter to all "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties
   in the resource with a value indicating an error.

3.2.2.3.  Modify

   When a scheduling object resource is modified by an Attendee, the
   server behavior depends on the value of the "SCHEDULE-AGENT"
   iCalendar property parameter on the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties:

   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SCHEDULE-AGENT | Action                                           |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SERVER         | The server will attempt to process the update    |
   | (default)      | using the behavior listed below.                 |
   |                |                                                  |
   | CLIENT         | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.  The client is assumed to be handling  |
   |                | any Attendee replies etc.                        |
   |                |                                                  |
   | NONE           | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.                                        |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+

   The server will inspect the changes by comparing the new scheduling
   object resource with the existing scheduling object resource.

   If the Attendee changes one or more "PARTSTAT" iCalendar property
   values on any component, or adds an overridden component with a
   changed "PARTSTAT" property, then the server MUST deliver an iTIP
   "REPLY" scheduling message to the Organizer to indicate the new
   participation status of the Attendee.

   If the Attendee adds an "EXDATE" property value to effectively remove
   a recurrence instance, the server MUST deliver an iTIP "REPLY"
   scheduling message to the Organizer to indicate that the Attendee has
   declined the instance.

   The server MUST add a "SCHEDULE-STATUS" iCalendar property parameter
   to the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar property in the scheduling object
   resource being updated, and set its value as described in
   Section 3.2.9.  This will result in the updated calendar object
   resource differing from the calendar data sent in the HTTP request.
   As a result clients MAY reload the calendar data from the server in
   order to update to the new server generated state information.

3.2.2.4.  Remove

   When a scheduling object resource is removed by an Attendee, the
   server behavior depends on the value of the "SCHEDULE-AGENT"
   iCalendar property parameter on the "ORGANIZER" iCalendar properties:

   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SCHEDULE-AGENT | Action                                           |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+
   | SERVER         | The server will attempt to process the removal   |
   | (default)      | taking into account any "Schedule-Reply" request |
   |                | header as per Section 8.1.                       |
   |                |                                                  |
   | CLIENT         | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.  The client is assumed to be handling  |
   |                | any Attendee replies etc.                        |
   |                |                                                  |
   | NONE           | The server does no special processing of the     |
   |                | resource.                                        |
   +----------------+--------------------------------------------------+

3.2.3.  HTTP Methods

   This section describes how use of various HTTP methods on a
   scheduling object resource will cause a create, modify or remove
   operation on that resource as described above.  The use of these
   methods is subject to the restrictions in [RFC4791], in addition to
   what is described below.

3.2.3.1.  PUT

   When a PUT method request is received, the server will execute the
   following operations, provided all appropriate preconditions are met:

   +------------------------+--------------------------+---------------+
   | Existing Destination   | Resulting Destination    | Server        |
   | Resource               | Resource                 | Operation     |

3.2.3.2.  COPY

   When a COPY method request is received, the server will execute the
   following operations based on the source and destination collections
   in the request:

   +-----------------------+------------------------+------------------+
   | Source Collection     | Destination Collection | Server Operation |

   Note 1.  The same rules as used for PUT above are applied for the
   destination of the COPY request.

   Note 2.  The server MAY reject this as per Section 3.2.4.1, otherwise
   None.

   The behavior of a COPY method request on a calendar collection is
   undefined.

3.2.3.3.  MOVE

   Note 1.  The same rules as used for PUT above are applied for the
   destination of the MOVE request.

   Note 2.  The same rules as used for DELETE below are applied for the
   source of the MOVE request.

   The behavior of a MOVE method request on a calendar collection is

3.2.3.4.  DELETE

   When a DELETE method is targeted at a scheduling object resource the
   server will execute the Remove operation.

   When a DELETE method is targeted at a calendar collection the server
   will execute the Remove operation on all scheduling object resources
   contained in the calendar collection.

3.2.4.  Additional Method Preconditions

3.2.5.  DTSTAMP and SEQUENCE Properties

   The server MUST ensure that a "DTSTAMP" iCalendar property is present
   and set the value to the UTC time that the scheduling message was
   generated (as required by iCalendar).

   The server MUST ensure that for each type of scheduling operation,
   the "SEQUENCE" iCalendar property value is updated as per iTIP
   [RFC5546].

3.2.6.  Restrict Recurrence Instances Sent to Attendees

   Servers MUST ensure that Attendees only get information about
   recurrence instances that explicitly include them as an Attendee,

   when delivering scheduling messages for recurring calendar
   components.

   For example, if an Attendee is invited to only a single instance of a
   recurring event, the organizer scheduling object resource will
   contain an overridden instance in the form of a separate calendar
   component.  That separate calendar component will include the
   "ATTENDEE" property referencing the "one-off" Attendee.  That
   Attendee will not be listed in any other calendar components in the
   scheduling object resource.  Any scheduling messages delivered to the
   Attendee will only contain information about this overridden
   instance.

   As another example, an Attendee could be excluded from one instance
   of a recurring event.  In that case the organizer scheduling object
   resource will include an overridden instance with an "ATTENDEE" list
   that does not include the Attendee being excluded.  Any scheduling
   messages delivered to the Attendee will not specify the overridden
   instance but rather include an "EXDATE" property in the "master"
   component that defines the recurrence set.

3.2.7.  Forcing the Server to Send a Scheduling Message

   The iCalendar property parameter "SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND" defined in
   Section 7.2 can be used by a Calendar User to force the server to
   send a scheduling message to an Attendee or the Organizer in a
   situation where the server would not normally send a scheduling
   message.  For instance, an Organizer could use this property
   parameter to request an Attendee, that previously declined an
   invitation, to reconsider their participation status without being
   forced to modify the event.

3.2.8.  Attendee Participation Status

   This section specifies additional requirements on the handling of the
   "PARTSTAT" property parameter when the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property
   parameter on the corresponding "ATTENDEE" property is set to the
   value "SERVER" or is not present.

   Servers MUST reset the "PARTSTAT" property parameter value of all
   "ATTENDEE" properties, except the one that corresponds to the
   Organizer, to "NEEDS-ACTION" when the Organizer reschedules an event.

   A reschedule of an event occurs when any "DTSTART", "DTEND",
   "DURATION", "DUE", "RRULE", "RDATE", or "EXDATE" property changes in
   a calendar component such that existing recurrence instances are
   impacted by the changes, as shown in the table below.

   +-----------+-------------------------------------------------------+

   The server MAY allow the Organizer's client to change an Attendee's
   "PARTSTAT" property parameter value to "NEEDS-ACTION" at any other
   time (e.g., when the "LOCATION" property value changes, an Organizer
   might wish to re-invite Attendees who might be impacted by the
   change).

3.2.9.  Schedule Status Values

   When scheduling with an Attendee there are two types of status
   information that can be returned during the operation.  The first
   type of status information is a "delivery" status that indicates
   whether the scheduling message from the Organizer to the Attendee was
   delivered or not, or what the current status of delivery is.  The
   second type of status information is a "reply" status corresponding
   to the Attendee's own "REQUEST-STATUS" information from the
   scheduling message reply that is sent back to the Organizer.

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


   Similarly, when an Attendee sends a reply back to the Organizer,
   there will be "delivery" status information for the scheduling
   message sent to the Organizer.  However, there is no "REQUEST-STATUS"
   sent back by the Organizer, so there is no equivalent of the "reply"
   status as per scheduling messages to Attendees.

   The "delivery" status information on an "ORGANIZER" or "ATTENDEE"
   iCalendar property is conveyed in the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" property
   parameter value (Section 7.3).  The status code value for "delivery"
   status can be one of the following:

   +----------+--------------------------------------------------------+
   | Delivery | Description                                            |
   | Status   |                                                        |
   | Code     |                                                        |
   +----------+--------------------------------------------------------+
   | 1.0      | The scheduling message is pending. i.e. the server is  |
   |          | still in the process of sending the message.  The      |
   |          | status code value can be expected to change once the   |
   |          | server has completed its sending and delivery          |
   |          | attempts.                                              |
   |          |                                                        |
   |          |                                                        |
   |          |                                                        |
   | 1.1      | The scheduling message has been successfully sent.     |
   |          | However, the server does not have explicit information |
   |          | about whether the scheduling message was successfully  |
   |          | delivered to the recipient.  This state can occur with |
   |          | "store and forward" style scheduling protocols such as |
   |          | iMIP [RFC6047] (iTIP using email).                     |
   |          |                                                        |
   |          |                                                        |
   |          |                                                        |
   | 1.2      | The scheduling message has been successfully           |
   |          | delivered.                                             |
   |          |                                                        |
   |          |                                                        |

   | 3.7      | The scheduling message was not delivered because the   |
   |          | server did not recognize the calendar user address as  |
   |          | a valid calendar user.  Note that this code applies to |
   |          | both Organizer and Attendee calendar user addresses.   |
   |          |                                                        |

   The status code for "reply" status can be any of the valid iTIP
   [RFC5546] "REQUEST-STATUS" values.

   The 1.xx "REQUEST-STATUS" codes are new.  This specification modifies
   item (2) of Section 3.6 of [RFC5546] by adding the following
   restriction:

      For a 1.xx code, all components MUST have exactly the same code.

   Definition of the new 1.xx codes is as follows:

3.2.9.1.  Status Code 1.0

   Status Code:  1.0

   Status Description:  Pending.

   Status Exception Data:  None.

   Description:  Delivery of the iTIP message is pending.

3.2.9.2.  Status Code 1.1

   Status Code:  1.1

   Status Code:  1.2

   Status Description:  Delivered.

   Status Exception Data:  None.

   Description:  The iTIP message has been sent and delivered.

3.2.10.  Avoiding Conflicts when Updating Scheduling Object Resources

   Scheduling object resources on the server might change frequently as
   Attendees change their participation status, triggering updates to
   the Organizer, and refreshes of other Attendees' copies of the
   scheduling object resource.  This can lead to an "inconsequential"
   change to a calendar user's data - one that does not directly impact
   their own participation status.  When this occurs, clients have to
   reload calendar data and reconcile with changes being made by
   calendar users.  To avoid the need for this, the server can instead
   merge calendar data changes from a client with changes made as a the
   result of a scheduling operation carried out by some other calendar
   user.

   This specification introduces a new WebDAV resource property CALDAV:
   schedule-tag with a corresponding response header "Schedule-Tag", and
   a new "If-Schedule-Tag-Match" request header to allow client changes
   to be appropriately merged with server changes in the case where the
   changes on the server were the result of an "inconsequential"
   scheduling message update (one which simply updates the status
   information of Attendees due to a reply from another Attendee).



Daboo & Desruisseaux    Expires September 8, 2012              [Page 33]

   Servers MUST support requests targeted at scheduling object resources
   using the "If-Schedule-Tag-Match" request header.  Servers MUST
   support the "Schedule-Tag" response header and CALDAV:schedule-tag
   property for scheduling object resources.  Servers MUST automatically
   resolve conflicts with "inconsequential" changes done to scheduling
   object resources when the "If-Schedule-Tag-Match" request header is
   specified.

   The If-Schedule-Tag-Match request header applies only to the Request-
   URI, and not to the Destination of a COPY or MOVE.

   A response to any successful GET or PUT request targeting a
   scheduling object resource MUST include a Schedule-Tag response
   header with the value set to the same value as the CALDAV:schedule-
   tag WebDAV property of the resource.

   A response to any successful COPY or MOVE request that specifies a
   Destination request header targeting a scheduling object resource
   MUST include a Schedule-Tag response header with the value set to the
   same value as the CALDAV:schedule-tag WebDAV property of the resource
   identified in the Request-URI.

   Clients SHOULD use the If-Schedule-Tag-Match header on requests that
   update scheduling object resources, instead of HTTP ETag-based
   precondition tests (e.g., If-Match).  Normal ETag-based precondition
   tests are used in all other cases, e.g., for synchronization.

   The value of the CALDAV:schedule-tag property changes according to
   these rules:

   o  For an Organizer's copy of a scheduling object resource:

      1.  The server MUST NOT change the CALDAV:schedule-tag property
          value when the scheduling object resource is updated as the
          result of automatically processing a scheduling message reply
          from an Attendee.  For instance, when an Attendee replies to
          the Organizer, the CALDAV:schedule-tag property is unchanged
          after the Organizer's scheduling object resource has been
          automatically updated by the server with the Attendee's new
          participation status.

      2.  The server MUST change CALDAV:schedule-tag property value when
          the scheduling object resource is changed directly via an HTTP
          request (e.g., PUT, COPY or MOVE).

   o  For an Attendee's copy of a scheduling object resource:

      1.  The server MUST change the CALDAV:schedule-tag property value
          when the scheduling object resource is changed as the result
          of processing a scheduling message update from an Organizer
          that contains changes other than just the participation status
          of Attendees.

      2.  The server MUST NOT change the CALDAV:schedule-tag property
          value when the scheduling object resource is changed as the
          result of processing a scheduling message update from an
          Organizer that only specify changes in the participation
          status of Attendees.  For instance, when Attendee "A" replies
          to Organizer "O", and Attendee "B" receives a scheduling
          message update from Organizer "O" with the new participation
          status of Attendee "A", the CALDAV:schedule-tag property of
          Attendee "B"s scheduling object resource would remain the
          same.

      3.  The server MUST change the CALDAV:schedule-tag property value
          when the scheduling object resource is changed directly via an
          HTTP request (e.g., PUT, COPY or MOVE).

3.2.10.1.  PUT

   Clients can use the If-Schedule-Tag-Match request header to do a PUT
   request that ensures that "inconsequential" changes on the server do
   not result in a precondition error.  The value of the request header
   is set to the last Schedule-Tag value received for the resource being
   modified.  If the value of the If-Schedule-Tag-Match header matches
   the current value of the CALDAV:schedule-tag property the server MUST
   take any "ATTENDEE" property changes for all Attendees other than the
   owner of the scheduling object resource and apply those to the new
   resource being stored.  Otherwise, the server MUST fail the request
   with a 412 Precondition Failed status code.

3.2.10.2.  DELETE, COPY or MOVE

   Clients can use the If-Schedule-Tag-Match request header to do a
   DELETE, COPY or MOVE request that ensures that "inconsequential"
   changes on the server do not result in a precondition error.  The
   value of the request header is set to the last Schedule-Tag value
   received for the resource being deleted.  If the value of the If-
   Schedule-Tag-Match header matches the current value of the CALDAV:
   schedule-tag property the server performs the normal DELETE, COPY or
   MOVE request processing for the resource.  Otherwise, the server MUST
   fail the request with a 412 Precondition Failed status code.

4.  Processing Incoming Scheduling Messages

   Scheduling operations can cause the delivery of a scheduling message
   into an Organizer's or Attendee's scheduling Inbox collection.
   Servers MUST automatically process incoming scheduling messages using
   the rules defined by [RFC5546], by creating or updating the
   corresponding scheduling object resources on calendars owned by the
   owner of the scheduling Inbox collection.  In addition, the
   scheduling message is stored in the scheduling Inbox collection as an
   indicator to the client that a scheduling operation has taken place.
   Scheduling messages are typically removed from the scheduling Inbox
   collection by the client once the calendar user has acknowledged the
   change.

   The server MUST take into account privileges on the scheduling Inbox
   collection when processing incoming scheduling messages, to determine
   whether delivery of the scheduling message is allowed.  Privileges on
   calendars containing any matching scheduling object resource are not
   considered in this case (i.e., a schedule message from another user
   can cause modifications to resources in calendar collections that the
   other user would not normally have read or write access to).
   Additionally, servers MUST take into account any scheduling Inbox
   collection preconditions (see Section 2.2) when delivering the
   scheduling message, and it MUST take into account the similar
   preconditions on any calendar collection which contains, or would
   contain, the corresponding scheduling object resource.

4.1.  Processing Organizer Requests, Additions, and Cancellations

   For a scheduling message sent by an Organizer, the server first tries
   to locate a corresponding scheduling object resource belonging to the
   Attendee.  If no matching scheduling object resource exists, the
   server treats the scheduling message as a new message, otherwise it
   is treated as an update.

   In the case of a new message, the server MUST process the scheduling
   message and create a new scheduling object resource as per
   Section 4.3.

   In the case of an update, the server MUST process the scheduling
   message and update the matching scheduling object resource belonging
   to the Attendee to reflect the changes sent by the Organizer.

   In each case, the scheduling message MUST only appear in the
   Attendee's scheduling Inbox collection once all automatic processing
   has been done.

4.2.  Processing Attendee Replies

   For a scheduling message reply sent by an Attendee, the server first
   locates the corresponding scheduling object resource belonging to the
   Organizer.  If the corresponding scheduling object resource cannot be
   found, the server SHOULD ignore the scheduling message.

   The server MUST then update the "PARTSTAT" iCalendar property
   parameter value of each "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property in the
   scheduling object resource to match the changes indicated in the
   reply (taking into account the fact that an Attendee could have
   created a new overridden iCalendar component to indicate different
   participation status on one or more instances of a recurring event).

   The server MUST also update or add the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" property
   parameter on each matching "ATTENDEE" iCalendar property and set its
   value to that of the "REQUEST-STATUS" property in the reply, or to
   "2.0" if "REQUEST-STATUS" is not present (also taking into account
   recurrence instances).  If there are multiple "REQUEST-STATUS"
   properties in the reply, the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" property parameter
   value is set to a comma-separated list of status codes, one from each
   "REQUEST-STATUS" property.

   The server SHOULD send scheduling messages to all the other Attendees
   indicating the change in participation status of the Attendee
   replying, subject to the recurrence requirements of Section 3.2.6.

   The scheduling message MUST only appear in the Organizer's scheduling
   Inbox collection once all automatic processing has been done.

4.3.  Default Calendar Collection

   The server is REQUIRED to process scheduling messages received for an
   Attendee by creating a new scheduling object resource in a calendar
   collection belonging to the Attendee, when one does not already
   exist.  A Calendar User that is an Attendee in a scheduling operation
   MUST have at least one valid calendar collection available.  If there
   is no valid calendar collection, then the server MUST reject the
   attempt to deliver the scheduling message to the Attendee.

   Servers MAY provide support for a default calendar collection, that
   is, the calendar collection in which new scheduling object resources
   will be created.  The CALDAV:schedule-default-calendar-URL WebDAV
   property, which can be present on the scheduling Inbox collection of
   a Calendar User, specifies if this Calendar User has a default
   calendar collection.  See Section 9.2.

   Servers SHOULD create new scheduling object resources in the default

   calendar collection, if the CALDAV:schedule-default-calendar-URL
   WebDAV property is set.

   Servers MAY allow clients to change the default calendar collection
   by changing the value of the CALDAV:schedule-default-calendar-URL
   WebDAV property on the scheduling Inbox collection.  However, the
   server MUST ensure that any new value for that property refers to a
   valid calendar collection belonging to the owner of the scheduling
   Inbox collection.

   Servers MUST reject any attempt to delete the default calendar
   collection.

4.3.1.  Additional Method Preconditions

   This specification defines additional method preconditions (see
   Section 16 of WebDAV [RFC4918]) to provide machine-parseable
   information in error responses.

4.3.1.1.  CALDAV:default-calendar-needed Precondition

   Name:  default-calendar-needed

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Apply to:  DELETE

   Use with:  403 Forbidden

   Purpose:  (precondition) -- The client attempted to delete the
      calendar collection currently referenced by the CALDAV:schedule-
      default-calendar-URL property, or attempted to remove the CALDAV:
      schedule-default-calendar-URL property on the scheduling Inbox
      collection on a server that doesn't allow such operations.

5.  Request for Busy Time Information

   Busy time information of one or more Calendar Users can be determined
   by submitting a POST request targeted at the scheduling Outbox
   collection of the Calendar User requesting the information (the
   Organizer).  To accomplish this, the request body MUST contain a
   "VFREEBUSY" calendar component with the "METHOD" iCalendar property
   set to the value "REQUEST" as specified in Section 3.3.2 of iTIP
   [RFC5546].  The resource identified by the Request-URI MUST be a
   resource collection of type CALDAV:schedule-outbox (Section 2.1).
   The "ORGANIZER" property in the "VFREEBUSY" component MUST match that
   of the Calendar User who "owns" the Outbox collection.

   A response to a busy time request that indicates status for one or
   more Calendar Users MUST be an XML document with a CALDAV:schedule-
   response XML element as its root element.  This element MUST contain
   one CALDAV:response element for each Calendar User, with each of
   those containing elements that indicate which Calendar User they
   correspond to, the scheduling status for that Calendar User, any
   error codes and an optional description.  For a successful busy time
   request, a CALDAV:calendar-data element is also present for each
   Calendar User, containing the actual busy time information (i.e., an
   iCalendar "VFREEBUSY" component).  See Section 10.1 for the detail on
   the child elements.  See Appendix B.5 for an example busy time
   request and response.

5.1.  Status Codes

   The list below summarizes the most common status codes used for this
   method.  However, clients should be prepared to handle other 2/3/4/
   5xx series status codes as well.

      200 (OK) - The command succeeded.

      204 (No Content) - The command succeeded.

      400 (Bad Request) - The client has provided an invalid scheduling
      message.

      403 (Forbidden) - The client cannot submit a scheduling message to
      the specified Request-URI.

      404 (Not Found) - The URL in the Request-URI was not present.

      423 (Locked) - The specified resource is locked and the client
      either is not a lock owner or the lock type requires a lock token
      to be submitted and the client did not submit it.

6.  Scheduling Privileges

   New scheduling privileges are defined in this section.  All the
   scheduling privileges MUST be non-abstract and MUST appear in the
   DAV:supported-privilege-set property of scheduling Outbox and Inbox
   collections on which they are defined.

   The tables specified in Appendix A clarify which scheduling methods
   (e.g., "REQUEST", "REPLY", etc.) are controlled by each scheduling
   privilege defined in this section.

6.1.  Privileges on Scheduling Inbox Collections

   This section defines new WebDAV ACL [RFC3744] privileges that are for
   use on scheduling Inbox collections.  These privileges determine
   whether delivery of scheduling messages from a calendar user is
   allowed by the calendar user who "owns" the scheduling Inbox
   collection.  This allows calendar users to choose which other
   calendar users can schedule with them.

   Note that when a scheduling message is delivered to a calendar user,
   in addition to a scheduling object resource being created in the
   calendar user's scheduling Inbox collection, a new scheduling object
   resource might be created or an existing one updated in a calendar
   belonging to the calendar user.  In that case, the ability to create
   or update the scheduling object resource in the calendar is
   controlled by the privileges assigned to the scheduling Inbox
   collection.

   The privileges defined in this section are ignored if applied to a
   resource other than a scheduling Inbox collection.

6.1.1.  CALDAV:schedule-deliver Privilege

   CALDAV:schedule-deliver is an aggregate privilege as per Section 6.3.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-deliver EMPTY>

6.1.2.  CALDAV:schedule-deliver-invite Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-deliver-invite privilege controls the processing
   and delivery of scheduling messages coming from an Organizer.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-deliver-invite EMPTY>

6.1.3.  CALDAV:schedule-deliver-reply Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-deliver-reply privilege controls the processing
   and delivery of scheduling messages coming from an Attendee.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-deliver-reply EMPTY>

6.1.4.  CALDAV:schedule-query-freebusy Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-query-freebusy privilege controls freebusy
   requests targeted at the owner of the scheduling Inbox collection.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-query-freebusy EMPTY>

6.2.  Privileges on Scheduling Outbox Collections

   This section defines new WebDAV ACL [RFC3744] privileges that are
   defined for use on scheduling Outbox collections.  These privileges
   determine which calendar users are allowed to send scheduling
   messages on behalf of the calendar user who "owns" the scheduling
   Outbox collection.  This allows calendar users to choose other
   calendar users who can act on their behalf (e.g. assistants working
   on behalf of their boss).

   The privileges defined in this section are ignored if applied to a
   resource other than a scheduling Outbox collection.

6.2.1.  CALDAV:schedule-send Privilege

   CALDAV:schedule-send is an aggregate privilege as per Section 6.3.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-send EMPTY>

6.2.2.  CALDAV:schedule-send-invite Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-send-invite privilege controls the sending of
   scheduling messages by Organizers.

   Users granted the DAV:bind privilege on a calendar collection, or
   DAV:write privilege on scheduling object resources, will also need
   the CALDAV:schedule-send-invite privilege granted on the scheduling
   Outbox collection of the owner of the calendar collection or
   scheduling object resource in order to be allowed to create, modify
   or delete scheduling object resources in a way that will trigger the
   CalDAV server to deliver scheduling messages to attendees.

6.2.3.  CALDAV:schedule-send-reply Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-send-reply privilege controls the sending of
   scheduling messages by Attendees.

   Users granted the DAV:bind privilege on a calendar collection, or
   DAV:write privilege on scheduling object resources, will also need
   the CALDAV:schedule-send-reply privilege granted on the scheduling
   Outbox collection of the owner of the calendar collection or
   scheduling object resource in order to be allowed to create, modify
   or delete scheduling object resources in a way that will trigger the
   CalDAV server to deliver scheduling message replies to the organizer.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-send-reply EMPTY>

6.2.4.  CALDAV:schedule-send-freebusy Privilege

   The CALDAV:schedule-send-freebusy privilege controls the use of the
   POST method to submit scheduling messages that specify the scheduling
   method "REQUEST" with a "VFREEBUSY" calendar component.

   <!ELEMENT schedule-send-freebusy EMPTY>

6.3.  Aggregation of Scheduling Privileges

   Server implementations MUST aggregate the scheduling privileges as
   follows:

      DAV:all MUST contain CALDAV:schedule-send and CALDAV:schedule-
      deliver;

      CALDAV:schedule-send MUST contain CALDAV:schedule-send-invite,
      CALDAV:schedule-send-reply, and CALDAV:schedule-send-freebusy;

      CALDAV:schedule-deliver MUST contain CALDAV:schedule-deliver-
      invite, CALDAV:schedule-deliver-reply, and CALDAV:schedule-query-
      freebusy.

   The following diagram illustrates how scheduling privileges are
   aggregated according to the above requirements.

7.  Additional iCalendar Property Parameters

   This specification defines additional iCalendar property parameters
   to support the CalDAV scheduling extensions.

7.1.  Schedule Agent Parameter

   Parameter Name:  SCHEDULE-AGENT

   Purpose:  To specify the agent expected to deliver scheduling
      messages to the corresponding Organizer or Attendee.

   Format Definition:  This property parameter is defined by the
      following notation:

      scheduleagentparam = "SCHEDULE-AGENT" "="
                        ("SERVER"      ; The server handles scheduling
                       / "CLIENT"      ; The client handles scheduling
                       / "NONE"        ; No scheduling
                       / x-name        ; Experimental type
                       / iana-token)   ; Other IANA registered type
                                       ;
                                       ; Default is SERVER

   Description:  This property parameter MAY be specified on "ORGANIZER"
      or "ATTENDEE" iCalendar properties.  In the absence of this
      parameter, the value "SERVER" MUST be used for the default
      behavior.  The value determines whether or not a scheduling
      operation on a server will cause a scheduling message to be sent
      to the corresponding Calendar User identified by the "ORGANIZER"
      or "ATTENDEE" property value.  When the value "SERVER" is
      specified, or the parameter is absent, then it is the server's
      responsibility to send a scheduling message as part of a
      scheduling operation.  When the value "CLIENT" is specified, that
      indicates that the client is handling scheduling messages with the
      Calendar User itself.  When "NONE" is specified, no scheduling
      messages are being sent to the Calendar User.

      Servers MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages
      sent as the result of a scheduling operation.

      Clients MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages
      that they themselves send.

      The parameter value MUST be the same on every "ORGANIZER" property
      in a scheduling object resource.





Daboo & Desruisseaux    Expires September 8, 2012              [Page 47]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


      The parameter value MUST be the same on each "ATTENDEE" property
      whose values match in a scheduling object resource.

      Servers and clients MUST treat x-name and iana-token values they
      do not recognize the same way as they would the "NONE" value.

   Example:

      ORGANIZER;SCHEDULE-AGENT=SERVER:mailto:bernard@example.com

      ATTENDEE;SCHEDULE-AGENT=NONE:mailto:cyrus@example.com

7.2.  Schedule Force Send Parameter

   Parameter Name:  SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND

   Purpose:  To force a scheduling message to be sent to the Calendar
      User specified by the property.

   Format Definition:  This property parameter is defined by the
      following notation:

      scheduleforcesendparam = "SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND" "="
                              ("REQUEST"    ; Force a "REQUEST"
                             / "REPLY"      ; Force a "REPLY"
                             / iana-token)  ; IANA registered method

   Description:  This property parameter MAY be specified on "ATTENDEE"
      and "ORGANIZER" properties on which the "SCHEDULE-AGENT" property
      parameter is set to the value "SERVER" or is not specified.  This
      property parameter is used to force a server to send a scheduling
      message to a specific Calendar User in situations where the server
      would not send a scheduling message otherwise (e.g., when no
      change that warrants the delivery of a new scheduling message was
      performed on the scheduling object resource).  An Organizer MAY
      specify this parameter on an "ATTENDEE" property with the value
      "REQUEST" to force a "REQUEST" scheduling message to be sent to
      this Attendee.  An Attendee MAY specify this parameter on the
      "ORGANIZER" with the value "REPLY" to force a "REPLY" scheduling
      message to be sent to the Organizer.

      Servers MUST NOT preserve this property parameter in scheduling
      object resources, nor include it in any scheduling messages sent
      as the result of a scheduling operation.

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


      Clients MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages
      that they themselves send.

      Servers MUST set the "SCHEDULE-STATUS" parameter of the "ATTENDEE"
      or "ORGANIZER" to 2.3 (i.e., "Success, invalid property parameter
      ignored", see Section 3.6 of [RFC5546]) when the "SCHEDULE-FORCE-
      SEND" parameter is set to a x-name or iana-token value they do not
      recognize.

   Example:

      ATTENDEE;SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND=REQUEST:mailto:bernard@example.com

      ORGANIZER;SCHEDULE-FORCE-SEND=REPLY:mailto:cyrus@example.com

7.3.  Schedule Status Parameter

   Parameter Name:  SCHEDULE-STATUS

   Purpose:  To specify the status codes returned from processing of the
      most recent scheduling message sent to the corresponding Attendee,
      or received from the corresponding Organizer.

   Format Definition:  This property parameter is defined by the
      following notation:

      schedulestatusparam = "SCHEDULE-STATUS" "="
                           ( statcode
                          / DQUOTE statcode *("," statcode) DQUOTE)
      ; "statcode" is defined in Section 3.8.8.3 of
      ; [RFC5545]. Value is a single
      ; "statcode" or a comma-separated list of "statcode" values.

   Description:  This property parameter MAY be specified on the
      "ATTENDEE" and "ORGANIZER" properties.

      Servers MUST add this property parameter to any "ATTENDEE"
      properties corresponding to Calendar Users who were sent a
      scheduling message via a scheduling operation.  Clients SHOULD NOT
      change or remove this parameter if it was provided by the server.
      In the case where the client is handling the scheduling, the
      client MAY add, change or remove this parameter to indicate the
      last scheduling message status it received.

      Servers MUST add this parameter to any "ORGANIZER" properties
      corresponding to Calendar Users who were sent a scheduling message
      reply by an Attendee via a scheduling operation.  Clients SHOULD
      NOT change or remove this parameter if it was provided by the

      server.  In the case where the client is handling the scheduling,
      the client MAY add, change or remove this parameter to indicate
      the last scheduling message status it received.

      Servers MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages
      sent as the result of a scheduling operation.

      Clients MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages
      that they themselves send.

      Values for this property parameter are described in Section 3.2.9.

   Example:

      ATTENDEE;SCHEDULE-STATUS="2.0":mailto:bernard@example.com

      ATTENDEE;SCHEDULE-STATUS="2.0,2.4":mailto:cyrus@example.com

8.  Additional Message Header Fields

   This specification defines additional HTTP request and response
   headers for use with CalDAV.

8.1.  Schedule-Reply Request Header


      Schedule-Reply = "Schedule-Reply" ":" ("T" | "F")

   Example:

      Schedule-Reply: F

   When an Attendee removes a scheduling object resource as per
   Section 3.2.2.4, and the Schedule-Reply header is not present, or
   present and set to the value "T" (true), the server MUST send an
   appropriate reply scheduling message with the Attendee's "PARTSTAT"
   iCalendar property parameter value set to "DECLINED" as part of its
   normal scheduling operation processing.

   When the Schedule-Reply header is set to the value "F" (false), the
   server MUST NOT send a scheduling message as part of its normal
   scheduling operation processing.

   The Schedule-Reply request header is used by a client to indicate to
   a server whether or not a scheduling operation ought to occur when an
   Attendee deletes a scheduling object resource.  In particular it
   controls whether a reply scheduling message is sent to the Organizer
   as a result of the removal.  There are situations in which
   unsolicited scheduling messages need to be silently removed (or
   ignored) for security or privacy reasons.  This request header allows
   the scheduling object resource to be removed if such a need arises.

8.2.  Schedule-Tag Response Header

   The Schedule-Tag response header provides the current value of the
   CALDAV:schedule-tag property value.  The behavior of this response
   header is described in Section 3.2.10.

   All scheduling object resources MUST support the Schedule-Tag header.

      Schedule-Tag = "Schedule-Tag" ":" opaque-tag
      ; "opaque-tag" is defined in Section 3.11 of [RFC2616]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


   Example:

      Schedule-Tag: "12ab34-cd56ef"

8.3.  If-Schedule-Tag-Match Request Header

   The If-Schedule-Tag-Match request header field is used with a method
   to make it conditional.  Clients can set this header to the value
   returned in the Schedule-Tag response header, or the CALDAV:schedule-
   tag property, of a scheduling object resource previously retrieved
   from the server to avoid overwriting "consequential" changes to the
   scheduling object resource.

   All scheduling object resources MUST support the If-Schedule-Tag-
   Match header.

      If-Schedule-Tag-Match = "If-Schedule-Tag-Match" ":" opaque-tag
      ; "opaque-tag" is defined in Section 3.11 of [RFC2616]

   Example:

      If-Schedule-Tag-Match: "12ab34-cd56ef"

9.  Additional WebDAV Properties

   This specification defines the following new WebDAV properties for
   use with CalDAV.

9.1.  CALDAV:schedule-calendar-transp Property

   Name:  schedule-calendar-transp

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Determines whether the calendar object resources in a
      calendar collection will affect the owner's freebusy.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected and SHOULD NOT be returned
      by a PROPFIND allprop request (as defined in Section 14.2 of
      [RFC4918]).

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property value SHOULD be kept during a MOVE
      operation, and SHOULD be copied and preserved in a COPY.

   Description:  This property SHOULD be defined on all calendar
      collections.  If present, it contains one of two XML elements that
      indicate whether the calendar object resources in the calendar
      collection ought to contribute to the owner's freebusy or not.
      When the CALDAV:opaque element is used, all calendar object
      resources in the corresponding calendar collection MUST contribute
      to freebusy, assuming access privileges and other iCalendar
      properties allow it to.  When the CALDAV:transparent XML element
      is used, the calendar object resources in the corresponding
      calendar collection MUST NOT contribute to freebusy.

      If this property is not present on a calendar collection, then the
      default value CALDAV:opaque MUST be assumed.

9.2.  CALDAV:schedule-default-calendar-URL Property

   Name:  schedule-default-calendar-URL

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Specifies a default calendar for an Attendee where new
      scheduling object resources are created.

   Protected:  This property MAY be protected in the case where a server
      does not support changing the default calendar, or does not
      support a default calendar.

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property is only defined on a scheduling
      Inbox collection which cannot be moved or copied.

   Description:  This property MAY be defined on a scheduling Inbox
      collection.  If present, it contains zero or one DAV:href XML
      elements.  When a DAV:href element is present, its value indicates
      a URL to a calendar collection that is used as the default
      calendar.  When no DAV:href element is present, it indicates that
      there is no default calendar.  In the absence of this property
      there is no default calendar.  When there is no default calendar
      the server is free to choose the calendar in which a new
      scheduling object resource is created.  See Section 4.3.

   Definition:

   <!ELEMENT schedule-default-calendar-URL (DAV:href?)>

   Example:

      <C:schedule-default-calendar-URL xmlns:D="DAV:"
           xmlns:C="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav">
        <D:href>/home/cyrus/calendars/work/</D:href>

9.3.  CALDAV:schedule-tag Property

   Name:  schedule-tag

   Namespace:  urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav

   Purpose:  Indicates whether a scheduling object resource has had a
      "consequential" change made to it.

   Value:  opaque-tag (defined in Section 3.11 of [RFC2616])

   Protected:  This property MUST be protected as only the server can
      update the value.

   COPY/MOVE behavior:  This property is only defined on scheduling
      object resources.  It MUST be preserved when a scheduling object
      resource is copied or moved and the resulting resource is also a
      scheduling object resource.  If the source resource is not a
      scheduling object resource but the destination resource is, this
      property MUST be added to the destination resource.

   Description:  The CALDAV:schedule-tag property MUST be defined on all
      scheduling object resources.  This property is described in
      Section 3.2.10.

   Definition:

      <!ELEMENT schedule-tag (#PCDATA)>

   Example:

      <C:schedule-tag xmlns:C="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:caldav"

11.  Security Considerations

   The process of scheduling involves the sending and receiving of
   scheduling messages.  As a result, the security problems related to
   messaging in general are relevant here.  In particular the
   authenticity of the scheduling messages needs to be verified.
   Servers and clients MUST use an HTTP connection protected with TLS as
   defined in [RFC2818] for all scheduling operations.  Clients MUST use
   the procedures detailed in Section 6 of [RFC6125] to verify the
   authenticity of the server.  Servers MUST make use of HTTP
   authentication [RFC2617] to verify the authenticity of the calendar
   user for whom the client is sending requests.

11.1.  Preventing Denial of Service Attacks

   Servers MUST ensure that clients cannot consume excessive server
   resources by carrying out "large" scheduling operations.  In
   particular, servers SHOULD enforce CALDAV:max-resource-size, CALDAV:
   max-instances and CALDAV:max-attendees-per-instance pre-conditions as
   applicable for scheduling Inbox and Outbox collections.

11.2.  Verifying Scheduling Operations

   When handling a scheduling operation:

   1.  Servers MUST verify that the principal associated with the DAV:
       owner of the calendar collection in which a scheduling object
       resource is being manipulated contains a CALDAV:schedule-outbox-
       URL property value.

   2.  Servers MUST verify that the currently authenticated user has the
       CALDAV:schedule-send privilege, or a sub-privilege aggregated
       under this privilege, on the scheduling Outbox collection of the
       DAV:owner of the calendar collection in which a scheduling object
       resource is being manipulated.

   3.  Servers MUST only deliver scheduling messages to recipients when
       the CALDAV:schedule-deliver privilege, or a sub-privilege
       aggregated under this privilege, is granted on the recipient's
       scheduling Inbox collection for the principal associated with the
       DAV:owner of the calendar collection in which a scheduling object
       resource is being manipulated.

   4.  To prevent impersonation of calendar users, the server MUST
       verify that the "ORGANIZER" property in an organizer scheduling
       object resource matches one of the calendar user addresses of the
       DAV:owner of the calendar collection in which the resource is
       stored.



Daboo & Desruisseaux    Expires September 8, 2012              [Page 58]

Internet-Draft        CalDAV Scheduling Extensions            March 2012


   5.  To prevent spoofing of an existing scheduling object resource,
       servers MUST verify that the "UID" iCalendar property value in a
       new scheduling object resource does not match that of an existing
       scheduling object resource with a different "ORGANIZER" property
       value.

11.3.  Verifying Busy Time Information Requests

   When handling a POST request on a scheduling Outbox collection:

   1.  Servers MUST verify that the principal associated with the
       calendar user address specified in the "ORGANIZER" property of
       the scheduling message data in the request contains a CALDAV:
       schedule-outbox-URL property value that matches the scheduling
       Outbox collection targeted by the request.

   2.  Servers MUST verify that the currently authenticated user has the
       CALDAV:schedule-send privilege, or a sub-privilege aggregated
       under this privilege, on the scheduling Outbox collection
       targeted by the request.

   3.  Servers MUST only return valid freebusy information for
       recipients when the CALDAV:schedule-deliver privilege, or a sub-
       privilege aggregated under this privilege, is granted on the
       recipient's scheduling Inbox collection for the principal
       associated with the DAV:owner of the scheduling Outbox collection
       targeted by the request.

11.4.  Privacy Issues

   This specification only defines how calendar users on the same server
   are able to schedule with each other - unauthenticated users have no
   way to carry out scheduling operations.  Access control privileges
   (as per Section 6) can control which of those users can schedule with
   others.  Calendar users not wishing to expose their calendar
   information to other users can do so by denying privileges to
   specific users, or all users, for all scheduling operations, or
   perhaps only freebusy.

   Attendees can also use the Schedule-Reply request header
   (Section 8.1) with the value set to "F" to prevent notification to an
   Organizer that a scheduling object resource was deleted.  This allows
   Attendees to remove unwanted scheduling messages without any response
   to the Organizer.

11.5.  Mitigation of iTIP Threats

   Section 6.1 of iTIP [RFC5546] defines a set of potential threats in a
   scheduling system, and in Section 6.2 defines recommendations on how
   those should be addressed in protocols using iTIP.  This
   specification addresses the iTIP threats in the following manner:

   Spoofing the Organizer  Addressed by item 4 in Section 11.2.

   Spoofing the Attendee  Addressed by item 2 in Section 11.2 and
      Section 3.2.2.1.

   Unauthorized Replacement of the Organizer  Addressed by item 5 in
      Section 11.2.

   Eavesdropping and Data Integrity  Addressed by requiring TLS.

   Flooding a Calendar  Addressed by requirements in Section 11.1

   Unauthorized REFRESH Requests  This specification does not support
      the REFRESH method.

Appendix A.  Scheduling Privileges Summary

A.1.  Scheduling Inbox Privileges

   The following tables specify which scheduling privileges grant the
   right to a calendar user to deliver a scheduling message to the
   scheduling Inbox collection of another calendar user.  The
   appropriate behavior depends on the calendar component type as well
   as the scheduling "METHOD" specified in the scheduling message.

A.2.  Scheduling Outbox Privileges

   The following tables specify which scheduling privileges grant the
   right to a Calendar User to perform busy time information requests
   and to submit scheduling messages to other Calendar Users as the
   result of a scheduling operation.  The appropriate behavior depends
   on the calendar component type as well as the scheduling "METHOD"
   specified in the scheduling message.

Appendix B.  Example Scheduling Operations

   This section describes some example scheduling operations that give a
   general idea of how scheduling is carried out between CalDAV clients
   and servers from the perspective of meeting Organizers and Attendees.

   The server is assumed to be hosted in the "example.com" domain, and
   users whose email address is at the "example.com" domain are assumed
   to be hosted by the server.  In addition, the email addresses in the
   "example.net" domain are also valid email addresses for calendar
   users hosted by the server.  Calendar users with an email address at
   the "example.org" domain are assumed to not be hosted by the server.

   In the following examples the requests and responses are incomplete
   and are only for illustrative purposes.  In particular, HTTP
   authentication headers and behaviors are not shown, even though they
   are required in normal operation.

B.1.  Example: Organizer Inviting Multiple Attendees

   In the following example, Cyrus invites Wilfredo, Bernard and Mike to
   a single instance event by simply creating a new scheduling object
   resource in one of his calendar collections by using the PUT method.

B.6.  Example: User Attempting to Invite Attendee on behalf of Organizer

   In the following example, Cyrus attempts to create, on behalf of
   Wilfredo, an event with Bernard specified as an Attendee.  The
   request fails since Wilfredo didn't grant Cyrus the right to invite
   other Calendar Users on his behalf.

   c.  Fixed <C:recipient> in examples.

   d.  Removed CALDAV:attachments-allowed precondition on POST to Outbox
       as that is no longer relevant.

   e.  Added CALDAV:default-calendar-delete-allowed precondition for
       DELETE.

   f.  Relaxed MUST->MAY for Organizer setting PARTSTAT value.

   g.  Tweaked restrictions on Create/Modify to emphasize that 4791
       restrictions also apply.

   h.  Added comment that 'opaque' is the default when the CALDAV:
       schedule-calendar-transp property is not present.

   i.  Description of Schedule-Reply header changed to reflect that it
       is only relevant for Attendees.

   j.  Minor typos fixed.

C.7.  Changes in -05

   This draft has changed substantially since the -04 version.  The
   primary reason for this change was implementation experience from a
   number of vendors who implemented products based on the earlier
   drafts.  Experience showed that the client/server interaction was not
   reliable in keeping scheduling messages synchronized between
   organizer and attendees.  In addition the latency in updates due to
   clients being offline proved unacceptable to users.  These issues led
   to the redesign of this specification to support a server-based
   processing model that eliminates all the problems seen previously.
   Whilst this adds significant complexity to the server in that it
   needs to be a full blown iTIP processing agent, it does remove a lot
   of the same complexity from clients, opening up the possibility of

   supporting complex scheduling behaviors even with "thin" clients.

   In the judgement of the authors, we consider this new specification
   to be a substantial improvement over the old one and believe it
   represents a stronger protocol that will lead to better
   interoperability.
