Several months ago, we introduced a new way to integrate with Bitbucket using HipChat API v2’s Add-on capabilities. And although it took a while, today we’re announcing the new GitHub for HipChat Add-on. We’re using the same v2 API behind our Bitbucket integration to power our new GitHub for HipChat add-on.
The new GitHub for HipChat add-on makes it easy to pipe in all of your GitHub notifications into one or more HipChat rooms, using GitHub’s rich set of webhooks. You can set up notifications for all of the events you see below:
You can subscribe any room to as many repositories as you want and tailor the events for each room and repository. After it’s all configured, your notifications will look like this:
Ready to try it out? Find the new GitHub for HipChat add-on in your admin console. Find your room configuration screen, select the room you want to add this to, then click on the Add-on link on the sidebar. You’ll see the GitHub add-on in the “Find new” tab.
The new GitHub add-on for HipChat brings important information about your dev process right into HipChat. So what are you waiting for? Go set it up!
