The GroupAttendeeConflictData element contains aggregate conflict information about the number of users who are available, the number of users who have conflicts, and the number of users who do not have availability information in a distribution list for a suggested meeting time.




The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.



Child elements




Represents the number of users, resources, and rooms in a distribution list.


Represents the number of distribution list members who are available for a suggested meeting time. This element represents members for whom the status is Free.


Represents the number of distribution list members who have a conflict with a suggested meeting time. This element represents members who have a Busy, OOF, or Tentative status.


Represents the number of group members who do not have published free/busy data to compare to a suggested meeting time. This element represents members of a distribution list that is too large or members who have No Data status.

Parent elements




Contains an array of conflict data for queried attendees identified in the GetUserAvailability operation.

The following is the XPath expression to this element:


The GroupAttendeeConflictData element is present in the response when an attendee in the GetUserAvailabilityRequest is resolved to a distribution list. The GroupAttendeeConflictData element identifies three states for members of a distribution list: available, conflicted, or no data. Distribution list expansion will support up to 100 members. Therefore, the NumberOfMembers element can contain a maximum of 100 members. Distribution list expansion is recursive. If a distribution list contains a child distribution list that expands the total parent membership to over 100 members, the child distribution list will not be expanded and will count as a single entry of the NumberOfMembersWithNoData element count. If a child distribution list can be expanded and the total parent membership does not expand to over 100 members, its membership is expanded and the member counts are added to the child elements of the GroupAttendeeConflictData element.
