Hipchat Webhooks global integration

Hello, i have a question about custom webhooks. According to documentation


Webhooks can be registered by a user or integration to receive a notification of an event. They can currently only be registered against a specific room via the the REST API.

If i get it, it means that i can create global(All rooms) webhooks through API. But when i check that api out, i see

Create webhook


I must set up room id, otherwise it answers with 400 and asks me to specify it.

Please, can you show me the way in which i can make my integration global?

Hi Sergey,

If you declare a webhook in your capabilities descriptor, and your add-on is installed globally, the webhook will automatically be installed in every room. For example:

"webhook": {
  "url": "",
  "pattern": "^/[eE][cC][hH][oO]",
  "event": "room_message",
  "authentication": "jwt",
  "name": "Echo"

You cannot yet register a global webhook by calling the REST API.

Global webhooks need to be declared in the capabilities descriptor of your integration. They will be setup by HipChat when the integration is installed. Add one or more webhooks into the "webhook" element of the capabilities descriptor.




@Tanguy Crusson, @Conor MacNeill thank you guys! Does it mean that i can't install global webhook without Integraton? I have to provide, at least, with format just like you've written before?

That is correct: you cannot add a webhook just using a token, you have to provide a descriptor. It's all explained here:
