Consider the use case where I want to spin up a HipChat room to address a specific issue. I can use the HipChat API to do so in an automated fashion. As part of setting up that room, I want to give the users some capabilities, like /DoThis or /DoThat where the slash command posts to a given endpoint and takes responses back from it.. I could make those general features for all of HipChat (added as integrations to ANY room), but that has drawbacks.
Is there an API I can use with cURL (or otherwise) to add dynamically add a slash command to a room?
