CalDAV configuration (macOS user policy)

With the CalDAV configuration you configure the synchronization of calendar data with a CalDAV server. For example, this can be used to sync Google Calendar with a Mac.



Account name

Account host and port

The host name or IP address and optionally the port number of the CalDAV server.

For example, for Google Calendar enter:

Principal URL

If required by the CalDAV server, enter the principal URL of the calendar resource.

For example, to sync with a calendar other than the primary calendar in a Google account, enter:

where calendar_id is the ID of the calendar you want to sync with. In the Google Calendar web application, the calendar ID is displayed in the calendar settings. See the Google Calendar help for details.

User name, Password

For example, for Google Calendar enter the credentials of the Google account.


The connection to the CalDAV server is secured by SSL or TLS (depending on what the server supports).
