    Question Can calendar receive external posts?

    Our company uses Zimbra's shared calendars for its staff members. We would like to have associates outside of the company be able to post events to certain shared calendars in Zimbra, however these associates do not have Zimbra accounts. Is there a way that these designated associates (not unauthenticated public) can post events via a GUI interface app or webpage (not CURL commands, etc.) and have them added to Zimbra calendars?

    I think you want to make a simple web page/form, either password protected or not, for your external users to create a new calendar entry. I was just trying to do something similar and found some useful information in the wiki. Here's the link followed by a little of the actual information:

    User Migration - ZimbraWiki

    We've added the ability to update/create content by POST'ing content to REST urls. GETs continue to remain read only, with no side-effects (as they should be).

    For example, you can POST an RFC822 formatted message to your inbox REST url to append messages to the inbox folder. Using the popular curl program, this would look like the following:

    curl -u schemersassword --data-binary @/tmp/rfc822.txt https://server/service/home/schemers/inbox

    Note, you currently have to use /service/home for POSTs instead of /zimbra/home, because /zimbra/home issues a redirect, which isn't allowed with POSTs. We'll be fixing that in an upcoming release.

    Other items that can be updated this way are calendar appointments (ICS), and contacts (csv and the new vcf (vCard) format):
