Hi Arijit,

1st Question:

I don't think the integration has that built in, but you may be able to programmatically rename the rooms using the API: https://www.hipchat.com/docs/apiv2/method/update_room 

2nd Question

Whenever a room is created, an popup jumps up that allows the person creating the room to invite users to the HipChat room, but I don't think this happens automatically because there isn't any logic in the integration that ties a JIRA user to a HipChat user to auto-invite them when the room is created.

Thanks David, that helps.

Would like to also ask if there is any way by which we can two separate Room on click of Create room? For now when I click create room it creates one room with name as ISSUE-key(ABC-24).I want another room to be created at the same time with some other name which (XYZ_ABC-24).
