Can't link to or import iCalendar

I'm trying to add some Finnish public holidays to a new Team Calendar, and whether I try to link to the URI

webcal:// (also tried changing 'webcal://' to 'http://' but no luck)

or else directly import the iCal data as an .ics file, it reports "The uploaded data does not seem to be iCalendar content".

But this same calendar works fine in both Google calendar and Mac OS.

It might not be in iCalendar format. Please do not confuse it with Apple iCal. Also, please try to open the .ics file and check whether it has the core object.

The original file began with




PRODID:-//Apple Inc.//iPhoto//EN






which I simplified to just



PRODID:-//Apple Inc.//iPhoto//EN


Apparently the additional lines in the definition led Confluence to conclude it wasn't an iCal file.
In any case, that solved the problem. Thanks!

Also note the typo in CALSCALE (GERGORIAN instead of GREGORIAN)
