Shared calendar did not show up until recreating account

As the title suggests, I had to recreate my caldav/carddav account so the calendar app could find the shared calendar I set up on ownCloud.

Toggling the sync caldav option did no help, nor did syncing.

Only when I recreated the account did the phone tell me it's searching for calendars and I could see the hits to the shared location in the ownCloud http server access logs.

Maybe there could be an option to look for calendars in the pull-down menu or have them be a part of syncing or something?

Same here. Shared calendar is simply gone. I was able to enter dates, but could not sync to cloud - more or less an "offline" situation. Worked for two weeks or so. Even "survived" the update to SF-OS 2.0.

Now, out of nothing, shared calendar does not appear in the "Manage calendars" section. I'm unable to set up a new account, as - in the meantime - I dropped my cloud.

Suggestions: Include calendar into backup ;-). A shared calendar that is not online permanently is IMHO crucial.

Question: How do I get my calendar back?

Update: I managed to access my Jolla via SSH, Debian Linux on a Laptop, via WLAN. devel-su allowed me to browse .local/share/system/privileged/Calendar/mkcal/. Copied the db to SD-Card. Not quick, but it's a calender backup ;-).

Additionally, I found (via Firefox SQlite extension) that db still does contain my events from the former owncloud solution. Changed the notebook ID within the database. Replacing the db on Jolla pending, wish me luck ;-).

So, two issues here: a) Again, I'd appreciate very, very much if the calendar was included into Backup. I'm not a very skilled power user, but stubborn, and I was able to "back up" the calendar db. So I guess sailors have an even better chance to include db to regular backups. b) Display: Caldav calendars that are not available for whatever reason should be visible in the 'Manage calendars' section, unless user deletes them. Even if Caldav sources are not available for a week or longer, just show the calendar. The missing display seemed to disappear rather randomly. As stated above, date is still there in the db.

Hope this helps. Thank you for reading.

Success: The display issue (for me), see topic b) in my previous post, is "solved". I checked the db via SQlite editor again. For most entries, the DateDeleted field in Components contained a value larger than 0 (zero). This means, I guess, that the corresponding date has been deleted at some time in the past, e. g. when/while creating a new CalDAV account?

I'd appreciate very much if someone could tell me what the number 1444118400 means in Jolla calendar terms? In my "ordinary" terms, this is approx. October 6, 2015. Rocket science for the internal calendar ;-)?

Please note: there is also a discussion here, in German

Including db to regular backups (topic a)) remains.

I'd like to close this one - at least my own comments ;-). Using the native internal JP calendar (without CALdav, or sync-to-whatever-service) works pretty fine, and is included in backups. Been using this for ~10 months now. Works for me.
