Before you begin

Roles required: admin, rota_admin, or rota_manager

About this task

This URL is sent as an iCal link that they can use to subscribe to their on-call calendar from their preferred calendar client.
Note: The subscription URL supports basic authentication. This means that the end user must provide their instance credentials to authenticate themselves to view their on-call events. Currently, only the Calendar application on Mac OS X 8.0 onwards and the Outlook application on Windows 2013 onwards support basic authentication for calendar subscriptions. If SSO is in use, basic authentication is still required to subscribe with the URL.
