APIv2: How to be informed by a incomming private message

For room messages, there are Hebhook events.

But I cannot see somthing similar for receiving a private message in the API.

Polling is no Option.

Do I have to use the XMPP-Gateway to receive private message events?

Is there something I missed?

Right now, webhooks are limited to room messages. In order to integrate with 1-1 chats, you would need something more along the lines of a bot. We hope to add more API support for 1-1 messages / integrations in the future, but we don't currently have a timeframe for when it will be added. 

Thanks for the fast answer, even if it was somehow disappointing.

Is it possibe to connect to the BOSH-Gateway? Is there some documentation?

We don't have supporting documentation for connecting to the BOSH gateway, unfortunately. It might be possible to connect (we use as the BOSH endpoint) but it's not currently designed for usage outside of the HipChat clients themselves.
