This weekend our Security Intelligence Team detected a security incident affecting a server in the HipChat Cloud web tier. The incident involved a vulnerability in a popular third-party library used by HipChat.com. We have found no evidence of other Atlassian systems or products being affected.
You spend half your day communicating with your team in chat and the other half jumping between other apps, browser tabs, and email chains. If you’ve ever thought there must be a better way, you’re right on the money. Today’s technology offers the advantage of bringing all your team’s important information into one cohesive workflow. We call this ChatOps.
This is a guest blog post by Jack Saville, Online Marketer at Bynder.
When a company grows from tens to hundreds of employees in a short period of time, there are bound to be growing pains. How do people meet and work closely together? How does company culture thrive? At Bynder, a digital asset management provider, we faced these questions head-on—growing from 50 to 250 employees in two years.
As hard as growing can be, we’ve found some simple ways to scale our business and maintain our core values. Here are some nuggets of wisdom we’d love to share.
Where should your team meet after work for drinks? What color should your T-shirts be? Who should be your team’s mascot? You’ve all got opinions, and Polly Bot keeps tally of them so your team can make a decision. Create the poll, monitor it, and shut it down—all within your HipChat room.
At Atlassian, my fellow engineers and I often find ourselves creating tools that rapidly become crucial to our own workflows. Because of this, the practice of writing tests to ensure consistent behavior is almost second nature for us.
We’re aware that this is not the case for everyone.
Every time you trigger a build in Bitbucket Pipelines, you remain glued to your desk, constantly checking to see if the build has passed. With the new Bitbucket Pipeline integration, there’s no need to wait around. Now, when your build fails, HipChat will send you an instant notification. You’ve got plenty to do, so let the information come to you, not the other way around.
You’re a team player, and you put the team first. But to be a great team player, you first have to look out for yourself. We’ve designed HipChat for individuals who build out a team—which means you should be setting up your HipChat integrations and workflow so it works best for you.
When there’s an incident, teams need two things: communication and urgency. The right players must be notified and brought up to speed—fast. xMatters provides a powerful solution that connects both the tools and people needed to resolve an issue. And it only gets more powerful with the new xMatters for HipChat integration that brings the right people together to discuss, make decisions, and resolve issues faster.
