Need real time error notifications in HipChat? This is a guest blog by Nick Harley, marketer at Raygun.
With offices in San Francisco and Wellington, New Zealand, Raygun provides error tracking and crash reporting for software developers, and is one of the best HipChat integrations in the known world.
We all know HipChat is an awesome tool for developers, but while your team may be communicating, your applications and websites are out in the wild, being used by customers encountering problems you aren’t aware of.
Many developers think that if they’re not hearing about errors, everything is hunky dory. This is definitely not the case.
From our experience, only 1% of users report problems. Many times when users report an issue, you’re likely to receive a tiny screenshot, pasted into a Word document. There needed to be an easier way to solve problems.
Introducing a better way to work
What if your software could talk to you?
What if your team could get real-time error notifications, right within HipChat?
Looking for intelligently grouped notifications, visible to the right people or the whole team?
We’d like you to meet Raygun
Raygun is available in the Atlassian Marketplace and was one of the first integrations available on the new HipChat API.
We’ll show you how to set Raygun up in a few easy steps and in no time you’ll revolutionize workflow and be connected like never before.
Just register a Raygun account, it’ll take a few minutes to integrate it into your application, and that’s it. You can authenticate Raygun with your team’s HipChat account and even select the room and message color you’d like to see notifications appear in.
Once you’ve hooked Raygun up, error notifications appear like magic in your team chat. Clicking on the error link will take you directly to the error, allowing you to see any diagnostic information.
This includes stack traces, environments, browsers, etc. You’ll be able to locate and fix errors in record time, way before users would have experienced an issue. Pretty Sweet, huh?
Killer tools working together
Raygun is HipChat’s best friend, while integrating nicely with JIRA and Bitbucket – thus giving you awesome error tracking that works with the tools you use every day.
Find Raygun in the Atlassian Marketplace, hook it up to HipChat and start blasting away software errors. You might be surprised at what you find!
