Yes, it is possible, you can do it under web interface. It is somewhat tricky to find:


This does not seem to be available in HipChat server. Is it? If not what is the estimate for this to be shipped to HipChat server?

Don't know exactly when it is coming to the HipChat Server. @Will DeHaan, might be able to give you more details.


@Will DeHaan could you please give me more details?

It's in the roadmap for the next HipChat server release. 

Hi @Povilas Milgevicius,

You can now have multiple private room owners in HipChat Server 2.0 which is in beta now. Please give it a try!

@Will DeHaan - when will this be out of beta and ready for hosted solution?  All we currently see is a dropdown with a single choice for room admin.

Hi folks! Pardon my latency. Multiple room admins is available in HipChat Server. 

/admin/rooms -> select room -> permissions -> edit owner -> add some friends

Available in HipChat Server 2; builds 1.4.0+

This is live in HCS2 build 1.4.2

@Will DeHaan - So this is all good for on-premise, but when we go to our group which is hosted by Atlassian, I only see a dropdown with the choice of a single user, not a list.  When will that upgrade occur on the groups that Atlassian hosts?

@Chris Stringer it's my hope & understanding that some of the permissions work for HipChat Server will be launched on in the coming months. Stay tuned...

Howdy folks,

Sorry for any confusion caused here! With HipChat Cloud, we currently restrict rooms to 1 Room Admin at a time. The ability to have multiple Room Admins is something that we are experimenting with internally, as seen in @Anatoli Kazatchkov screenshot! We have an official Suggestion page to track that functionality here:

If this functionality would be valuable for you and your teams, please be sure to visit that page to Vote and show your support, and Watch for any future updates on progress.
