The iOS app running on an iPhone or iPad takes minutes to load the following:

  • initial user presence statuses 
  • user presence statuses changes
  • chat history in rooms and 1-on-1 conversations



  • Hipchat Server 2.2.4
  • Hipchat for iOS v3.16.2

Diagnostic Steps

  • Run an SSL check against your Hipchat Server FQDN from your Hipchat Server and verify that your certificate chain is invalid:

    openssl s_client -showcerts -connect <your_hipchat_url>:443 -CApath /etc/ssl/
  • Disabling Require certificate validation doesn't let you get to the login screen. 


You don't have a valid SSL certificate installed in your Hipchat Server.


Install a valid SSL certificate in Hipchat Server, refer to Hipchat Server SSL Installation and Troubleshooting Guide to learn more about the errors and how to fix them.
