Sun Java System Calendar Server 6 2005Q4 Developer's Guide

Command: fetchcomponents_by_attendee_error


Fetch a list of components that had errors while sending group scheduling messages.


Table 7–11 fetchcomponents_by_attendee_error Parameters








The attendee’s calid to search on. The command searches the calendars specified in the calid parameter for all errors in events for this attendee.

If this parameter is not specified, the command searches the primary owner’s calendars for all event errors for any attendee. 




A semicolon-separated list of calendar identifiers. 

The calid can be supplied in two formats: 

  • string - calendar identifier

  • mailto:rfc822addr - An email address appended to “mailto:”. The address is mapped to a user with an LDAP lookup, and then the user’s default calendar ID is used. Returns: X-SICS-EMAIL and X-NSCP-CALPROPS-RELATIVE-CALID

Current user’s calid


keyword (event, todo, all)

Indicates which components to return: event returns only events

todo returns only todos

all returns both events and todos

If an invalid value is passed in, the system assumes all.



integer (0,1)

This parameter is deprecated in this release and might be deleted in future releases. 

For compressed=0, returns less data. Specifically, it does not return the following parameters:rrules, rdates, exrules, and exdates.

For compressed=1, all recurrence data is returned.



integer (0, 1)

0 = The calid is returned in the calendar address part of the ATTENDEE and ORGANIZER properties. The X-Token X-S1CS-EMAIL has the RFC 822 email address of the invitee or organization.

1 = The email address is returned in the calendar address part of the ATTENDEE and ORGANIZER properties. The X-Token X-S1CS-CALID contains the calid value.




Specifies the order in which the events and todos are returned. 

The values are: 



integer (0, 1)

0 = Returns calid in calendar address part of the attendee or organizer property and returns the RFC 822 address of the invitee or organizer in X-S1CS-EMAIL.

1 = Returns the RFC 822 compliant email address in the calendar address part of the attendee or organizer property, and returns the calid in X-S1CS-CALID.




The format for the returned data. 

Two format types: 





unique identifier string 

The session identifier. 




The maximum number of events and todos to be returned. When 0, no maximum is applied and the command returns all events and todos found.



integer (0, 1)

1 = Returns all components in compressed form. Compressed form has master entries plus exceptions.

0 = Returns components expanded, but without master record and exceptions.

0 (not compressed)


integer (0, 4)

Return the alarm as relative or absolute. 

0 = Return alarm values as absolute.

4 = Return alarms as originally created.

0 (absolute)


standard time zone string 

The time zone returned data is translated to. 

Returns data in Zulu time 


Use this command to retrieve a list of events and todos that had errors when sending group scheduling messages. This command works almost like fetchcomponents_by_range.

Output Format

The server returns data in the format specified by the fmt-out parameter. If this parameter is not passed, the data is returned in the default text/calendar format.

maxResults Value

If you specify a maximum n, the command returns up to the first n events and first n todos in the specified range. For example, if you specify a maxResults value of 75, the returned data would contain the following variables

var maxResults=75 /* maximum cap passed in */
var size=75     /* event size is capped to 75 */
var todosize=28 /* todo size not affected since it is less than 75 */

If the maxResults parameter is set to 0 or is not passed, then the returned data does not contain the var maxResults statement.


For each calendar specified in calid, the server returns the events and todos that had errors for the specified attendee while sending group scheduling messages.

For example, if the calid parameter specifies calendars cal1 and cal2, and the attendee parameter specifies jdoe, then both cal1 and cal2 would be searched for events with errors that had jdoe as an attendee. In the table that follows, cal1 and cal2 each have four events with associated attendees:

cal1 Events  

cal2 Events  

event - 1c1 

attendee: jdoe

status: error 

event - 1c2 

attendee: john

status: OK 

event - 2c1 

attendee: susan

status: error 

event - 2c2 

attendee: jdoe

status: error 

event - 3c1 

attendee: jdoe

status: OK 

event - 3c2 

attendee: susan

status: OK 

event - 4c1 

attendee: john

status: OK 

event - 4c2 

attendee: susan

status: error 

For attendee jdoe, the command returns: events 1c1 and 2c2.

The system uses the tzidout parameter to determine what time zone to translate retrieved data into before returning it. If the tzidout parameter is missing, the system returns the data in Zulu time.

Error Codes

If the operation is successful, the error number of 0 is appended to the error string. If the command fails for any reason, errno is Error Codes(42).
