When trying to use the aforementioned popup menu in the WebCal interface to display his calendar we get the “Getting events from server…” panel, but it never completes.  No problem accessing other user’s calendars. How would one debug, and hopefully fix, this issue?  His calendar is very busy! Creating an event and inviting the boss does present his busy/free times without issue.

The CalendarServer logs should be somewhat useful here; they are in /Library/Server/Calendar & Contacts/Logs - specifically access.log and error.log. You could also use the web developer console in the browser to look for javascript errors (the webcal client is implemented in javascript).

I didn’t see anything particularly related to the boss’s attempts to login to webcal in the error.log, but the browser console log showed these errors.

This is a bit beyond me.

Any thoughts?  Any way to identify and repair the “detached event without a parent”?

Also a related question.  Last week I used the Mac Calendar.app to log into the boss’s account to help him configure some delegation permissions in the app’s preferences, and discovered that a number of emails were sent under my personal email declining invitations.  Here is an example: 

> Ian Baker has declined your invitation to the event: Lunch au bureau, scheduled for January 26, 2017 at 12:00 PM (America/Toronto (EDT) offset -14400 (Daylight)).

I personally was not invited to these events, but the boss was, and he already declined the invitation back in January (according to him).

I don’t understand why these emails were sent.  Is this expected behaviour?  And if so, is there any way to prevent these from going out?
