Hipchat metrics needed

Need to get a report that shows the last message posted date for each chat room so we can do a cleanup of unused rooms.  The "last active" date provided gets updated when administrative actions occur so does not represent the last time the room was actually used.  We have many rooms with a current "last active" date but if we look at the room history the last posting was actually over a year ago.  Also need to generate counts of active vs archived rooms.  Thanks.

Hi Stan,

You may want to take a look at the Auto-Archive script found at Using the Auto-Archive script for HipChat Server

Script details

  • This script will cycle through all non-deleted and non-archived rooms, determines the 'activity' in each room (activity being last message, room creation date, etc), then calculates (based on the threshold time variable selected) if the room should be archived or not.
  • Rooms that contain no history will be archived as well.
  • This script can be manually ran or ran via Cron scheduling.
  • Uses python and must be executed in the /hipchat-scm/fishtank/tools directory.

As far as your second request, you can obtain which rooms are archived by simply running the following command in the HipChat Server CLI:

hipchat stats -w

Or by looking at the 'System Status' page in the web interface under the 'Server Admin' page (requires admin level user account).

Hope this helps!
