How to post a card using Hipchat api


I've wrote a quick python code to POST cards following the documentation page example ( but I am unable to see the card in the client (Mac OS X) although a HTTP 204 code is returned from the server.

May be somebody could provide me a working example?


My code:


#!/usr/bin/env python

import json
import requests

headers = { 'Content-Type' : 'application/json' }
card = {
  "style": "link",
  "url": "",
  "id": "fee4d9a3-685d-4cbd-abaa-c8850d9b1960",
  "title": "My test",
  "description": {
    "format": "html",
    "value": "<b>Add-on link:</b> <a href='#' data-target='hip-connect-tester:hctester.dialog.simple' data-target-options='{\"options\":{\"title\":\"Custom Title\"}, \"parameters\":{\"from\":\"link\"}}'>Open Dialog with parameters</a>"
  "icon": {
    "url": ""
  "date": 1443057955792

data_json = { 'message' : '<b>test1<b>', 'card': card, 'message_format' : 'html' }

params = { 'auth_token' : '[REMOVED]' }

r ='https://[REMOVED][REMOVED]/notification', data=json.dumps(data_json), headers=headers, params=params)
print r
