Hipchat change default privacy settings from PUBLIC to PRIVATE when creating a new room

Hi Team ,

I want to update the default privacy settings of a HipChat Room . Currently the default setting is PUBLIC for every room , bascially anyone can access the room . But as per my company policy I need to change this to PRIVATE . As a admin I can do it manually by going to individaul rooms which is really painfully . Rather I would like to do it programmatically either via Webhook or REST API , If any of you know how to do it please let me know . Please guide me here .

Appreciate your help , Thanks !

There isn't a global setting to make rooms private by default. You may communicate directly with the development team regarding the feature by commenting and voting on this suggestion ticket: Make rooms private by default

Thanks for the response Ann Worley . 

Please let me know if we can achieve the privacy setting using webhook rest api ?

Basically I need to do this - On Creating a room in HipChat I need to call a webhook which should update the privacy setting to PRIVATE for that particular room. But the questions is - Whats the event I need to use in Hip Chat ? How to configure the Webhook ? If you have any similar working examples , please let us know . Thanks !
