@Kirill Skuybida Unfortunately, controlling message viewing permissions at this fine-grained of a level isn't supported by HipChat (in either server or cloud versions). Guests will always receive all messages sent to a room after they join.

It is important to note, however, they they do not currently have access to view previous history from before they join the room - this is something we're looking into as an improvement to guest access.

Thank you for your answer, Chris.

Yes.  When entering a comment, you can select who will be able to view it.  The selections can either be project roles or project groups, I believe.  However, the default setting is "all users."

I can not find a place where I can configure message privacy. Please assist.

And I believe you're talking about JIRA smile I'm referring to the HipChat.
