Parameter Name

SCHEDULE-AGENT

Purpose

To specify the agent expected to deliver scheduling messages to the corresponding "Organizer" or "Attendee".

Format Definition

This property parameter is defined by the following notation:

  scheduleagentparam = "SCHEDULE-AGENT" "="
                ("SERVER"      ; The server handles scheduling
               / "CLIENT"      ; The client handles scheduling
               / "NONE"        ; No scheduling
               / x-name        ; Experimental type
               / iana-token)   ; Other IANA-registered type
  ;
  ; If the parameter is not present, its value defaults to SERVER.
  ; "x-name" and "iana-token" are defined in Section 3.1 of
  ; [RFC5545].

Description

This property parameter MAY be specified on "ORGANIZER" or "ATTENDEE" iCalendar properties. In the absence of this parameter, the value "SERVER" MUST be used for the default behavior. The value determines whether or not a scheduling operation on a server will cause a scheduling message to be sent to the corresponding calendar user identified by the "ORGANIZER" or "ATTENDEE" property value. When the value "SERVER" is specified, or the parameter is absent, then it is the server's responsibility to send a scheduling message as part of a scheduling operation. When the value "CLIENT" is specified, that indicates that the client is handling scheduling messages with the calendar user itself. When "NONE" is specified, no scheduling messages are being sent to the calendar user.

Servers MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages sent as the result of a scheduling operation.

Clients MUST NOT include this parameter in any scheduling messages that they themselves send.

The parameter value MUST be the same on every "ORGANIZER" property in a scheduling object resource.

The parameter value MUST be the same on each "ATTENDEE" property whose values match in a scheduling object resource.

Servers and clients MUST treat x-name and iana-token values they do not recognize the same way as they would the "NONE" value.

  ATTENDEE;SCHEDULE-AGENT=NONE:mailto:cyrus@example.com
