Bug Description

I noticed I cannot import a calendar from PagerDuty (

When I try to add online calendar (Settings -> Add -> From Web) in "Add calendar" dialog, button "Add" stays disabled when I enter URL.
If I download the calendar and add it via "From file" method, everything works.

When I ran gnome-calendar with debug option (--debug) the following was logged to the console (I removed all sensitive information).

15:00:04.0161 GcalSourceDialog: DEBUG: Detected host: '<REMOVED>', path: '/<REMOVED>'
15:00:04.0162 GcalSourceDialog: DEBUG: Trying to connect without credentials...
15:00:04.0912 GcalSourceDialog: DEBUG: [source-dialog] error: Failed to get properties: HTTP error code 404 (Not Found): The server responded with an HTML page, which can mean there’s an error on the server or with the client request. The used URI was: https://<REMOVED><REMOVED>

Unfortunately, I cannot post PagerDuty URL here because it contains sensitive information.

I can normally download the calendar via curl. It does not require any credentials. I'm also importing it into Google Calendar without any issues. If I create a dummy calendar in Google Calendar and I try to import it via public URL everything works as expected. I'm having issues only with importing of the PagerDuty calendar.

I tried to sniff traffic with mitmproxy but I don't see any requests logged to mitmproxy of URLs I entered to "Add calendar" dialog. Is it possible that "Add calendar" dialog does not respect proxy configuration? I wanted to compare what's different in curl vs gnome-calendar request/response.

Any suggestions how to debug it?
