Basic Configuration

The basic configuration for a Google Calendar connector is as follows:

Name Description
Domain The domain instance. Required for managing calendars.
Data Username The username for the Google Data API, a previous generation API for managing Calendars and Domain Shared Contact object types.
Data Password The password for the Google Data API.
Manage ACL's Whether Calendar ACL's should be managed by this connector. A performance cost is incurred with this setting, only check if required.
  • None: Does not read or write ACL's;
  • Xml: Reads and writes ACL's as Xml blobs. Does not require the lookup against the group or user adapter.
  • DN: Uses the distinguished name of the reference attribute to find the desired entity in the group or user adapter.
  • Email: Assumes that the RDN (the first component in the DN) is a Google Apps email. Extracts the value and passes it straight to Google Apps without having to look up the item for save operations. Requires that either "group" or "user" are part of the distinguished name.
Export Synchronicity Allows export operations to be changed from running synchronously. Synchronous: The default setting, which allows for error messages to be propagated to the identity management platform; Asynchronous: Performs operations asynchronously, logging is still performed, however, the return status will always be a success. For asynchronous mode read the documentation before using.
