@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.
