    ODS Calendar Atom based upstream support

    ODSCalendar now supports Atom based upstreaming. Any Calendar instance can be configured to escalate any changes to one or several remoted ODS Calendar instances.

    Configuration

    Upstreaming can be configured from Preferences->Upstreams

    The form for adding or changing existing upstream contains following fields:

    Field Value
    Name name of the upstream - list of upstreams actually a list of such names
    URI URI of remote ODSCalendar Atom endpoint. Usually it is something like http://host:port/dataspace/{ods-user}/calendar/{calendar-instance}/atom-pub
    User name of user who has write permissions on the remote ODSCalendar instance
    Password password of user
    Include with tags Calendar object with this tags will be upstreamed.
    Exclude with tags Calendar object with this tags will not be upstreamed.

    The upstreaming is performed on the interval set in the Virtuoso database ini file for paramater SchedulerInterval in the [Parameters] section.

    Simple example:

    We will use the following data from http://myopenlink.net:8890/ods:

    1. There is registered an user test1 with pwd 1.
    2. User test1 is an owner of a test1Calendar Calendar instance.

      4. For field "Password:" 1
      5. Leave the tags fields empty for now.
        • if you want to upstream certain events / tasks containing tags for ex. "virtuoso", then you need to enter in the form field "Include with tags (comma-separated)" the value virtuoso and then to add this tag in the creation form for Events and Tasks.
