Bitbucket notifications to HipChat just got even better

HipChat notifications from Bitbucket are a great way to keep your team up to date on changes to their code repositories – no matter where they are. For example, your team can receive notifications in the HipChat room you use to collaborate whenever a commit is pushed to the repo. But of course, there’s a lot more happening on your repositories than just new commits. Issues and pull requests are a big part of your development workflow, so with our new HipChat add-on for Bitbucket, we’ve made it dead-simple to send notifications about those too.

Bitbucket’s new HipChat add-on includes the following notifications:

  • Commits: when a new commit is pushed, or commented on
  • Pull requests: when a pull request is created, commented on, merged, or declined
  • Issues: when an issue is created, updated, or commented on

Bitbucket notifications in HipChat

Our new add-on is also easy to install and configure. Just look for ‘HipChat integration’ in the menu when managing your team or personal account. Once the add-on is installed, any administrator of a repository can configure notifications. Notifications can be added or configured when managing an account or managing a repository. When you manage your account, you will be able to view and manage notifications across all repositories owned by the account. When you manage a repository you will be able to view and manage notifications for that repository.
