when removal succeeds but addition fails for some reason? The operation is not atomic anymore.

We offline-discussed this with Honza. There should be a new command `ipa hbacrule-replace-accesstime rule_name --orig-time=icalstr1 --new-time=icalstr2`. As it would be derived from LDAPQuery, the atomicity is kept. This may not be very nice for CLI but should work well for WebUI. Both icalstr1 and icalstr2 need to be encoded as newlines that appear so often in iCalendar strings would only make a mess here.

Example of use:

ipa hbacrule-replace-accesstime rule_name --orig-time="'BEGIN:VCALENDAR\\r\\nPRODID:-//The Company//iCal4j 1.0//EN\\r\\nVERSION:2.0\\r\\nMETHOD:REQUEST\\r\\nBEGIN:VEVENT\\r\\nUID:1...@company.org\\r\\nDTSTAMP:20160406T112129Z\\r\\nDTSTART:20101115T050000Z\\r\\nDTEND:20101115T070000Z\\r\\nRRULE:FREQ=MONTHLY;INTERVAL=5;BYDAY=MO;BYHOUR=5,6\\r\\nEND:VEVENT\\r\\nEND:VCALENDAR\\r\\n'" --new-time="'BEGIN:VCALENDAR\\r\\nPRODID:-//The Company//iCal4j 1.0//EN\\r\\nVERSION:2.0\\r\\nMETHOD:REQUEST\\r\\nBEGIN:VEVENT\\r\\nUID:1...@company.org\\r\\nDTSTAMP:20160406T112129Z\\r\\nDTSTART:20101115T050000Z\\r\\nDTEND:20101115T070000Z\\r\\nRRULE:FREQ=MONTHLY;INTERVAL=5;BYDAY=MO,TU;BYHOUR=5,6\\r\\nEND:VEVENT\\r\\nEND:VCALENDAR\\r\\n'"

to add Tuesdays to the timespan defined by the rule.
I would really like to see a file input support here. It would be
simpler to operate in CLI as you would anyway create vCal files -- no
sane person is going to deal with these strings directly on the command
