Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 999357
Can not create new appointments in Evolution
Last modified: 2013-08-30 19:05:17 EDT
Description of problem:
I can not create an appointment in my exchange calendar. Works for the Personal and my google calendar
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create an appointment in the EWS connected exchange calendar
Cannot create calendar object: The request failed schema validation: The 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/types:EmailAddress' element is invalid - The value '' is invalid according to its datatype 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/types:NonEmptyStringType' - The actual length is less than the MinLength value.
I tried to run evolution with EWS_DEBUG=1 but the error doesn't show up. Seems (as the message indicates) to happen earlier already. I can edit appointments once they are created some where else. If you try to move an appointment from an other calendar into the EWS calendar it silently fails.
Thank you for the report.
This problem was fixed upstream: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=702922
