Noob: Trying to build Getty Images Hipchat Integration

Hey everybody. I am a super huge noob when it comes to this type of development work or what have you. So I am trying to make a simple integration in HipChat so that when you use the slash command "/getty" it calls to this api Request URL I generated using the GettyImages API


Past generating this URL, initially creating the integration (giving it a name, selecting the Add a Command) I am kind of lost. To be fair and upfront, I am flying by the seat of my pants. So I just tried to take the URL above and paste it into the "We will POST to the URL" box, hoping that by doing that my slash command will fetch images and then bring them down that way.


I get this error before being able to save out my integration:

Again, I am well aware I don't know exactly what I am doing. I am trying to challenge myself to just make this thing as a means of practicing something. If anyone could help me accomplish this, I'd be so grateful.

Hi Kalee - your best bet here is probably to follow our step-by-step tutorial at - it should get you through the initial installation procedure, at which point you can start making small changes to the code. The base installation has a slash command already setup for you, so you might want to start by updating that to hit the GettyImages API and handle the results.
