@untitaker, thanks for finding the duplicate.
@onny Please follow up in #578 and the linked OwnCloud issue report.
Some times ago I’ve added DAVdroid account on my phone with groups as CATEGORIES (I don’t remember exact version, but it probably was in September this year). All worked fine: after adding new CATEGORIES in vCards new groups was created on the phone.
Now only membership of existing contacts in already existing groups can be changed. New groups doesn’t appear on the phone after adding to a vCard on the server.
If new contact with new group is added on server it doesn’t appear on the phone at all.
I’ve tried to look at DAVDroid logs - nothing useful is found - group name can be found only in dump of HTTP reply from server.
Phone is Sony D6503 with Android 6.0.1
Steps to reprodice:
Unfortunately, I can’t reproduce the problem. Adding the CATEGORIES creates the group as expected (Samsung Note 10.1 with Android 4.4).
Let’s have a look at the logs, too:

The last 3 lines:

are generated by
ContactsSyncManager::processVCard and are for group management (I have made the logs more verbose now). The first operations deletes the group assignments for this contact, and then there are twice as many operations as groups. In our case, there are 2 operations, which means that one group has been assigned.
This is what is expected and what I see in my own debug logs when I try to reproduce the problem, too.
Are you absolutely sure that the group is not created on your device? What happens if you change this contact and synchronize it again – is
CATEGORIES set correctly?
Also, from which version did you upgrade? Contact group management hasn’t changed in the last versions – maybe you have updated from a very old version?
After changing on a server and syncing one more time I still don’t see neither new contact neither new group on the phone.
I don’t remember DAVdroid version I’ve used at time of initial setup but given that it was in September it probably was 1.3
Since then I’ve also upgraded Android (as I remember Adroid version 6.0.1 hasn’t changed at this update).
It seems to be that new contact was stored on the phone. I’ve added email to this new contacts and it now appears in mail client autocomplete.
