The HipChat module collects notifications from other modules within the system and forwards them to a room within the HipChat service.


From the dashboard select Settings and then HipChat Settings, from here you can set the HipChat API token and the ID of the room that notifications will be sent to.

To create or obtain a login to your HipChat account and then select GroupAdmin followed by API, under Create new token select the Type as Notification and Enter a meaningful label e.g. My Website Notification Servce and click Create.

New HipChat Access Token

After clicking create a token will be created, take a note of this token as it will be required.
