Importing events from third-party calendar providers

Use the following procedure to import an iCalendar (.ics) file from a supported third-party calendar application. The events contained in the file are incorporated into the rules for your open or closed calendar. You can import a file into a new calendar you are creating with Change Calendar (a capability of Amazon Systems Manager) or into an existing calendar.

After you import the .ics file, you can remove individual events from it using the Change Calendar interface. For information, see Deleting a Change Calendar event. You can also delete all events from the source calendar by deleting the .ics file. For information, see Deleting all events imported from a third-party calendar.
