Need for published Groupwise 18.2 calendar to be viewable in OWA

I need to be able for OWA users to be able to subscribe and view GroupWise calendars published.  It works for those using the desktop version of Outlook, but for OWA, nothing shows up.    What am I missing.  The OWA documentation mentions the calendar subscription having an ".ics" extension.  Is that the problem, the calendar link does not have that extension.

Re: Need for published Groupwise 18.2 calendar to be viewable in OWA

I do not have OWA experience but documentation tells me

To use OWA to add the calendar, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to OWA.
  2. Switch to the Calendar module.
  3. Click the Add calendar menu.
  4. Select the From internet option.
  5. Provide the URL and an optional calendar name.
  6. Click Save.

ICS is not mentioned here. However is you import a calendar (instead of subscribe)  then you need ics files.

I have followed those steps multiple times, yet I get nothing viewable and no error messages.

Which link did you use? 

I had to find a customer who is using OWA. I found one with accounts at outlook.office.com. So I imported the link which started with 'webcal://'. It is working as I expected!

Glad it works for you, it does not for us.  When I "subscribe" here is what I see (Note the example ends with ".ics"):

I can use the very same URL ("webcal://vcalendar.mhtn.com/gwcal/calendar/ZGFud0BtaHRuLmNvbT9jbj01MTM3NTc5OS5NSFROX1NMQy5QT0ZGSUNFMS4xMDAuMTY2NjgzMS4xLjM2RTYwLjE" Note that it does begin with "webcal://".) in Outlook and in OWA.  The OWA subscription shows up in Outlook and you can see they do not show the same information.  The one in "orange" (or whatever color that is) is the one subscribed to through Outlook, the one in "green" is the same URL (shown above) subscribed to through OWA.

Really strange! Of course I see the same example here (please use ics) but it works. In my case it's office365 and not a on-prem Exchange.

But you have mentioned that you used the same link within Outlook ...
