Zimbra iCalendar Migration Guide : Alternate Methods of Importing a Converted .ics File

Alternate Methods of Importing a Converted .ics File
Two alternate methods of importing a converted .ics file are REST and SOAP calls. To import files using either of these methods, you will need the user name and password of the account to which the .ics file is being imported.
A converted .ics file can also be imported by POSTing the content to REST API. To POST an .ics file to a calendar using cURL, use the following command.
curl -u user_name:password --data-binary @/tmp/new.ics
http://server/service/home/user_name/calendar?fmt=ics
To see more examples of importing using cURL, see the User Migration article on the Zimbra Wiki.
Importing converted .ics files using SOAP is possible using any programming language with SOAP support.
Note: Zimbra does not recommend using SOAP to import converted .ics files unless you have previous experience programming with SOAP.
