Hipchat + Bamboo

Bamboo Hipchat Plugin

This plugin integrates Bamboo with Hipchat.

It allows any Bamboo notification to be posted to a specific Hipchat room - with or without notifying the users in that room.

This plugin allows you to take advantage of Bamboo's:

  • flexible notification system (ie tell me when this build fails more than 5 times!)
  • commenting (comments show up in the chatroom so everyone can see someone's working on the build)

with Hipchat's:

  • persistent history (join the chatroom, see recent builds),
  • ease of creating chat rooms (create rooms for specific builds or high priority failures to tune out noise),
  • mobile clients (get vibrating notifications on your iPhone when messages appear in certain rooms)
