Send invites with google calendar API

Tags: , , ,



I have a Java Spring API where I want to integrate Google Calendar.

The task:

  • Basically creating an event for two attendees (users) and send them an invite with the option to accept/decline (standard GCalendar invite)

I tried this example here: https://developers.google.com/google-apps/calendar/quickstart/java

But I think this is not the right one since I authenticate as a user – or do I need this to send them invites via email?

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Answer

Try setting the notification to true.

sendNotifications

  • Whether to send notifications about the creation of the new event. Optional. The default is False.

In the Try this API (Events: insert):

I’m not very familiar with java but try using this code as suggested in a related SO post.

Event createdEvent = calendario.events().insert("some-mail-from-google0@group.calendar.google.com", event).setSendNotifications(true).execute();

Hope this helps.
