Can hipchat messages sent from bitbucket be set as notifictions?

The new hipchat integration in bitbucket is nice but the messages don't seem to be flagged as notifications which makes it almost pointless since you never see a new PR unless you regularly go into the channel to look for them (which really defeats the purpose of sending them to hipchat).

Is there a way to force these to be notifications?

Yes, there is but it's for all event types and it is in the integration configuration page.

I'm not seeing anything to do that.  The following image are the only options we see.  


The Hipchat API doco at says this


Whether this message should trigger a user notification (change the tab color, play a sound, notify mobile phones, etc). Each recipient's notification preferences are taken into account.

Defaults to false.

I'm fairly certain that the message is not being sent with notify set to true.

Hi Micheal, It seems that the new BitBucket integration doesn't allow you to set "loud" notifications. We have an improvement request open to address this matter and make the feature available.
