In addition to Slack integration we have recently released, today we are announcing the support for HipChat. HipChat is persistent, searchable, and loaded with goodies: video calling, screen sharing, and the security your IT team craves.
Setup HipChat Plugin in MantisHub
Setting up HipChat integration with MantisHub is pretty easy. Start with installing the HipChat plugin by going to Manage – Manage Plugins and click install button next to the HipChat plugin.
Create Room API token from HipChat
Start with creating an API token in HipChat and use the provided token and room name to include the MantisHub plugin settings. Go to the Rooms page and select the room you want to link a project to.
Select the Tokens page for the room you have selected.
Create a room token to be used by MantisHub, so set the label to “MantisHub”.
Copy the the room token to paste it into MantisHub HipChat configuration
Set the Room Token in MantisHub HipChat Plugin
Go to Manage – Manage Plugins – HipChat and set the room name (case sensitive) and room token for each of the projects that should send notifications to the room we just created a token for. If room/token not set for a project, then no HipChat notifications will be generated for that project.
MantisHub / HipChat integration is all set
