HipChat History Change? Can we set history to 180 days?

We previously had the option to specify the number of days chat history is stored for, I believe this option was there for both users and rooms.

When was this option changed?  is there anymore information on this change?

What I'm trying to do is set all history to 180 days across our organization.

Hi @Richard Corder,

HipChat Server offers additional retention options including 180 and 365 days. 

HipChat Cloud (*.hipchat.com) does not, with apologies.

This widget could not be displayed.

Please can you confirm that this option changed and when?  Is there any additional information on why this changed?

Thanks for the help,
