Connect Confluence and HipChat

First your organisation's HipChat account needs to be connected to Confluence.  It only takes a minute.

You'll need administrator permissions for your HipChat group to do this. 

If you're a Confluence admin go to  > General Configuration > HipChat Integration and click Connect HipChat to get started. 

If you're a Space Admin you can go to Space Tools > Integration > HipChat to get started. 

  Using the Documentation theme?

If your space uses the Documentation theme go to Browse > Space Admin HipChat

You'll need to be logged in to HipChat as a Group Admin to complete the integration. 

Send space notifications to HipChat

Keep your team in the know by sending notifications about space activities, like new pages and blogs, to your team's HipChat room. Notifications appear in real-time, and one click takes you straight to Confluence. 

To set up space notifications go to Space Tools > Integration > HipChat and add a room to the list.  

  Using the Documentation theme?

If your space uses the Documentation theme go to Browse > Space Admin HipChat

You'll need Space Admin permissions, and if you are connecting to private HipChat rooms, you will need to log in to HipChat on the integration screen. 

Invite users

If you have administrator permissions you can invite users to join HipChat directly from the Integration screen. Follow the instructions in Connect Confluence and HipChat above, to access the integration screen. You must have at least one space integrated with a room to see the invite users link. Select the link to send an email inviting users to HipChat. 

Presence indicator

When you hover over a user mention or a byline it will show if the user is available in HipChat. Green, yellow and red icons indicate when someone is available, away or doesn't want to be disturbed.
