Integrating HipChat with Team-One
Send a direct message to a user with a /command
Creating a HipChat /command to post to the service
Step 1: Open the HipChat Integrations Dashboard
Within your HipChat room, open the Settings menu menu ("..." icon) in the upper right corner of the page and select "Integrations...".
Step 2: Select "Create" under "Build Your Own"
On the HipChat Integrations listing, locate the "Build Your Own" option and click on "Create" to add a custom integration.
Give your new integration a name and select "Create".
Step 3: Configure Your Webhook
Complete the "Extend HipChat with your Commands" section of the resulting form.
In the "slash command" field, enter the prefix that will create the message.
In the "We will POST to this URL" field, enter the generated webhook URL.
For example, if you enter
/foo as the slash command, whenever a user enters
/foo into your HipChat room, the rest of the message will be posted to the workspace or personal chat that you've associated with the webhook.
Step 4: Test your Integration
Returning to your HipChat room, you can now test the command. Post a HipChat message using the slash command you just created.
You should now have a new message in the associated workspace or personal chat.
Optional: Customize the Chat Message
If you'd like to make changes to the chat or direct message that is posted when the slash command is entered, go to the "Manage Integrations" tab and find the block corresponding to your integration.
Click on the "Edit" button to open the integration edit screen.
Click on "Show Advanced Settings" to view the full list of options. Make your changes to the "Body Transform" field, and then click "Save Changes".
Your changes will become active immediately.
