Has anyone else dealt with this issue already? I reported this issue as a bug, but then started wondering it it is perhaps a 'feature'. I expect that when I remove one person, the other permissions on shared resources will be unchanged, but maybe I'm not looking at it right.

I just confirmed that when you remove a user that has access rights to a shared resource (direct, not via group permissions), Kerio Connect changes the access rights for other users of that resource back to whatever original read-only status was originally defined for it. I haven't tested this on public folders yet.

It has taken a while to figure out why sometimes the access rights on resources revert to read only, or are otherwise messed up. With several part-time admins, we've just been assuming someone else screwed it up.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Remove a user from the Accounting department calendar.
2. Wait for the phone calls because nobody can add events to the accounting calendar.

Steps to reproduce for bug reporting purposes:

In Connect admin console:
Create a resource calendar
Add some groups and a couple users to it.
log into web client and make it visible.
since you can't see or change permissions in the Kerio Connect Client, switch to old webmail.

In old webmail:
Right-click on the new calendar and go to Access Rights.
Observe all the added groups/users permissions are read-only.
Change a few of them to Editor or Admin. Save.
Maybe add a couple more users. Save.
Test if you want, to make sure users or groups can create appointments in the resource.

Back in Connect Admin Console,
In Users, highlight one of the users and select Remove.
Be sure the "Also delete alias...." Checkbox is ticked.
Click OK.

Back in old webmail:
View access rights on the resource.
Observe that all the permissions you had earlier set to Editor or Admin, are now reset back to read-only, and any users that were added via old webmail are no longer there.

Mid 2015: Quit Kerio and moved to Exchange 2013 and Meraki.
Kerio Control 8.4.0--Used since it was WinRoute, many years ago
Kerio Connect 8.4.0 on Ubuntu. Bought Connect just in time for the switch to NO SUPPORT(aka pay for support). Not. Happy.

Hi Charles

I've tried the above method you highlighted and everything is working correctly on my 8.2.2 test system. I cannot reproduce this I'm afraid.

As it is, you should always treat resource calendars as different to normal calendars. all users should be read only, this reduces any potential conflicts when dealing with invited resources.

I hope this helps.
