  • For what version of Exchange ? For 2000/3 most are listed in the OWA customization white-paper http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6532e454-073e-4974-a800-1490a7cb358f&displaylang=en . Freebusy is documented in the Exchange 2003 SDK http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms877305.aspx. You might also what to look at using a tool like fiddler which will allow you to see the cmds and syntax's that get used in a live OWA session.

  • Exchange 2003.  The OWA customization white paper does list a lot of the commands that I have seen in the past, but not all of them.  The 'new' and 'freebusy' commands were just examples of commands to explain what my question was about.  I didn't mean to ask for the syntax of those commands specifically.  I'm just looking for a comprehensive list of these commands and their syntax. 


    Thanks for the help

  • I don't believe there is a published master list of these cmds the white paper (which is pretty old) is the most comprehensive I've seen. Some others are documented for for using webparts etc . Recently all the WebDAV verbs and operation where added to the protocol documents http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc425499.aspx.

  • Glen,

    Could you kindly give me some details about fiddler. Particualrly where can I find it.

    I have the same requirement as Steve, to find out what are the commands getting passed back and forth between OWA and Exchagne server.

  • Thanks Glen,

    Fiddler really helped me to figure out what aspx page gets called when I click on different objects/areas on OWA. Thank you for introducing the tool.

    I'm still wondering how it retrieves some values out of nowhere. For example when you clikc on a folder, it calls the mesageview.aspx page but how it gets the folder ID and other properties is a mystery. Also most of the properties are inaccessible which doesnt make much sense.

    Thanks again.
