I’ve been experiencing some issues with nextcloud calendar invitations. Invitations from the nextcloud server get through to other calendars, but both incoming invitations and updates to the invitations sent from nextcloud (ie, accepted, declined) do not update. Unfortunately, this is behavior that I have experience with from a Mail-in-a-box deployment (and is the reason I threw up my hands with miab and came to mxroute!) Would be grateful to hear from those using nextcloud calendar successfully and are not seeing this behavior
Testing done primarily from the nextcloud web calendar client and calendar.app . Emailing currently works fine. Current setup up-to-date, though I’m currently having some issues getting DKIM on AWS lightsail to propagate (sadly, I’m not alone: https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jspa?messageID=960166󪚦). This shouldn’t matter for the present issue and, otherwise, everything is set up appropriately.
Invitations created on the web client and calendar.app both properly show up on one another. Invitations out to others, at other domains, do eventually arrive. Acceptance or rejection, though, of these invitations does not propagate back to the sender from nextcloud. Further, invitations to the address at nextcloud do not show up. This, in particular, feels like a big deal.
I should note that I had the exact same issue with Maib which, like mxroute, relies on nextcloud to handle caldav and carddav. I was running a linode with 2gb, v0.50 of maib, which was running a recent (but not current) version of nextcloud. DNS through aws lightsail. Nginx logs didn’t demonstrate any obvious errors.
I have also posted, of course, both to the nextcloud forum to solve this but got no traction–they’ve got a lot of open tickets over there. I also tried /r nextcloud and miab forum just in case; no luck. I couldn’t get it to work so I figured I’d just try the professionals over here at mxroute.
I thought it was something I was probably doing wrong with my miab install or setups, because this is a pretty major issue that I presume others would be elevating if it wasn’t just me. But now that I’m having the same experience with mxroute, I’m pretty confused. I don’t think it’s user error with the web interface or the calendar.app setup; I don’t see how it could be the DNS. I guess I could be wrong…
So I’m stumped. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks very much mxroute folks!
