iCloud ical error 403 caldavwriteentityqueueableoperation

Today when I access to my calenders via iCloud, I get the error messages with iCal on my Mac:
“The Access to the account “iCloud” is not allowed
The server responded: “403”
to process CalDAVSetPropertyQueueableOperation “
I only get the issue in iCal. The calender are shown and updated correclty on my iPhone 4s with iOS 5. How can I fix the issue?

If you havethe same problem, try the following step by step:
* Go to systen settting and switch off “Calendar” in the iCloud Settings.
* Open “iCal” and close it on your Mac.
* Then switch on “Calendar” in the iCloud and open iCal again. Problem solved.

  1. This still did not fix the problem. I have tried it the last two days and it always comes back within an hour of doing your fix.

    • I selected the recurring calendar event that wasn’t deleting and changed it’s calendar list from “home” to “work” for instance and then deleted it.

  2. I’m having the same issue, and tried lots of different solutions (including) the above. Nothing solved it. My calendars work fine in iPhone and iPad, but don’t sync with iCal. Anybody has any ideas? Thanks.

  3. I’m having the same issue. Have tried this and several other options, including cleaning out ~/Calendars, Caches, and Preferences related to iCal. Nothing works 🙁 iCloud felt so good, and now it’s starting to feel like Mobile Me all over again. I’m listening hard for any suggestions.

  4. So in short: Apple is using us devoted users as guinea pigs to improve their system and we pay for it. Amazing.

    Fix didn’t work. Anyone out there at the Apple Store?! Please for the love of God.

    • Newsflash: So far, I have synced from other devices and it logs it on my mac without a problem and doesn’t display any popup messages. Mountain Lion is definitely the main issue here.

  5. I am updating past events in iCal to the correct calendar categories. As I do so some of them simply disappear. When I re-enter them they may or may not remain. Some show up on iCloud right away if they are new events, but not with calendar corrections in one particular calendar. Even when entered fresh they sometimes simply vanish from iCal, or I get this message everyone is reporting and complaining about above.

    As a side note: I love iOS-it works fabulously on my iPhone. Why can’t we get Mail, iCal and Safari to work as well on the actual computers? Do they need a complete redesign: hint, hint Apple.

  6. This fix did not work for me. When I get a caldav invitation from my husband (he uses google calendar), it shows up in gray on my calendar. When I “accept”, the calendar item disappears off the calendar on my macbook. Very frustrating. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Lately it doesn’t.

  7. Do the following

    Back up calendars. Disable calendars, back up, open finder and move ~/Library/:


    … and other files relating to iCal / Calendar to the desktop (these were the ones I found). Then reenable iCloud Calendars in preferences and reenter account info in Calendars if it’s missing. Everything working as it should now.

  8. You guys if you are trying to do something in iCal like erase a calendar and it gives your the

    Access to account “iCloud” is not permitted.

    The server responded:
    to operation CalDAVRemoveCalendarQueueableOperation.

    message, you just need to do it from the iCloud page http://www.icloud.com, login with your Apple ID and managing from the calendar section, there you will find an interface like iCal’s, click in edit and it will give you the option to erase any calendar without any complain.

    Hope it help you guys 🙂

  11. I can’t even alter my appointments directly in iCloud. This is happening in my phone, laptop and both computers. I have tried all above suggestions.

  12. ho creato un id apple per entrare su apple store su un iphone 4 e tutto va bene quando provo a entrare su icloud mi esce l ‘errore 403…come posso fare a risolverlo??

  13. If it’s an invite from another account for an event, then have the inviter cancel/delete the event. Did the job for me.


  14. * Go to systen settting and switch off “Calendar” in the iCloud Settings.

  15. I have problem in my iPhone 6, Mac Book and mi iPad,

    What the you want? i am 63 years old?
    Can you helpme?

  16. For those of you that have tried most to resolve this issue and still have had no luck I did manage to solve this a different way.

    Firstly you will need another device like an iPhone running the calendar app. It must be syncing with iCloud.

    What you will see on that app is that the offending calendar invite will be greyed out as if it is waring for you to accept it. INSTEAD of ‘accepting it’, simply change the invite so that it shows up in another calendar view.

    What do I mean by this? My default calendar is ‘XXX-work’ I had another calendar showing called ‘home’. I accepted the invite on my iPhone but accepted it under ‘home’ instead of the default ‘XXX-work’ and for me it worked. I then shut down my calendar on my phone and reopened it.

    I then selected (edited it in other words) the invite I just accepted under home and hit ‘Decline’. This removed it from my iPhone. I found it also removed it from iCal on my Mac and also on iCloud never to be seen again.

    This is what worked for me so hopefully it will work for you too. Let me know if you have trouble and I will be happy to give you ‘clearer’ instructions if that helps.
