ics with single event on aug. 17, 14:00 UTC+2

ical Calendar resource cannot be created from various sources, including file:/ and https:/.

1. create minimal ical file and save it to disk (e.g. the attached testevent.ics)
2. Use Akonadi Console or KOrganizer to add a ical resource
3. select the prepared ics file and save

Resource is created but events do not show up (details below)

Events should show

KDE Applications: 20.08
KDE Plasma Version: 5.19.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.73.0
Qt Version: 5.15

Apparently the file (or url in case of https) can't be loaded ('No file selected'). Output from terminal after activating ical debugging and issuing "akonadictl restart":

org.kde.pim.akonadiserver: New notification connection (registered as Akonadi::Server::NotificationSubscriber(0x7f7f98087750) )

Comment 1 Philipp Schmidt 2020-08-17 14:13:07 UTC
I also just verified this with the current Neon User Edition in a VM. Same behaviour as under my main system.
Comment 2 Markus 2020-09-30 15:44:30 UTC
When I check a new ics calendar in "Akonadi Console":
In "Agents":
Under "Configure->Configure Remotely...", the config does not match with what was configured in the add-dialog. (e.g. DisplayName and Path is empty.)
Also checking in the "DB Browser" ind "collectiontable":
The resource does not have a remoteId and the name is still the "akonadi_ical_resource_#".

Is it the same for you, too?
Comment 3 Philipp Schmidt 2020-09-30 17:56:51 UTC
(In reply to Markus from comment #2)

Yes, it's as you said, doesn't match.
Comment 4 Markus 2020-10-10 13:44:12 UTC
ICalConfig seems to correctly save the data, but ICalResource does not load it.
Adding "mSettings->load();" to SingleFileResource::readFile seems to work. (Although I doubt its a clean solution.)

We can confirm it for 5.15.2 in Debian Testing.
As a workaround we found that in Akonadi Console - Agents you have to synchronize your iCal resource until in Akonadi Console - Browser the collection is duplicated. The duplicate now shows your items and saves your changes ...

Would it possible to work with the devs upstream? maybe it's the solution for it :)

Additionally the resource name is not correct either.
