Error description

  • iOS native client may get in loop retrying calendar action for
    repeating event. It appears these cases occur when there are no
    outstanding notices and Traveler just responds successful for
    the action request. The device will still send a sendmail
    (reply notice to chair). Traveler has some code to try and avoid
    processing these replies if the event is already in the
    requested state. In some cases where there are child documents
    in cancelled or removed states Traveler thinks the event reply
    still needs to be processed.
    Fix is to better detect states where no reply to chair is
    needed. This does not stop the device action loop but prevents
    a flood of replies to the chair.
    </Update>
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Native calendar application on iOS devices may get stuck in
    retry loop for sending a notice to the event chair when replying
    to a single instance of a repeating event.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM Traveler server has been updated to detect and work
    around this device bug by not sending the notice more than once.
