  • Is it possible to export the contents of hipchat on a regular basis for archival purposes? - We want to make a searchable History of our chat day we can save either in confleunce, or to export in different format for external use.

@Morten Bjerregaard - There's no built-in auto-exporter, unfortunately. It would be relatively straightforward to use the API to accomplish what you're looking for though (at least for rooms). You can use the view_room_history method to get history for a room and the general room API to get a list of all the rooms. You can see documentation at https://www.hipchat.com/docs/apiv2/method/view_room_history

1-1 history isn't something provided via API. In order to see 1-1 history, admins must request an export to be initiated through HipChat support.

for HipChat server - can API export 1-on-1? thanks!

The HipChat APIv2 does not export 1-1 - you need to use the built in export tool within HipChat Server for this (Server admin > Export)
