We’re excited to announce that StatusPage.io has released a native HipChat integration to pipe all updates to your public or private status page into a HipChat room.
Now anyone in your company can access up to the minute incident statuses from their desktop, web browser or mobile device.
What does the integration do?
Earlier, StatusPage.io released an activity log feature only visible to page administrators. This was great. But it also put the communication responsibilities on the only people who could resolve the issues.
“As an engineer and ops person, I know that the two most important things during downtime are communication and getting everyone out of the way.” – Scott Klein, Founder of StatusPage.io
This new integration now broadcasts the status logs into a designated HipChat room.
Now, everyone in the company can stay up-to-date during an unplanned outage or scheduled maintenance without interrupting the engineers who are working to restore services.
How it works
Existing StatusPage.io customers can enable this integration in 4 simple steps. You can find full documentation at help.statuspage.io.
Generate a HipChat API token to paste into the StatusPage.io management portal.
Visit the Activity Log section in your StatusPage.io management portal
Link your StatusPage.io account to a specific company HipChat room
See the integration in action by changing a component status or inviting a new team member (or, if your page isn’t live, a new test incident)
We (heart) StausPage.io
We’re big fans of StatusPage.io, having recently switched our own http://status.hipchat.com page to their services.
StatusPage.io provides HipChat with a beautiful status site with all sorts of features we wouldn’t have time to build ourselves. Our co-founder Garret Heaton adds “we can count on our status page staying up and keeping our users informed while we focus on fixing issues.” We think our community will see the value as well.
StatusPage.io is offering a 3 month, 50% off discount for all HipChat customers through December 31st.
Email Danny at email@example.com and mention “HipChat Blog” if you’d like to get set up with the discount.
