I'm new to HipChat API and I'm trying to make a simple slashcommand which returns a card. What am I doing wrong here (PHP file):


$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "[REMOVED]");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query(array(
  'color' => 'gray',
  'message' => 'Test message',
  'notify' => true,
    'card' => array(
        'title' => 'Test card',
        'format' => 'compact',
        'style' => 'application',
        'url' => '[REMOVED]',
        'description' => 'lorem impsum',
        'id' => '234567890'
  'message_format' => 'html'

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
$server_output = curl_exec ($ch);
curl_close ($ch);


All help is appreciated.

Morten, the format looks ok. Do you actually see 'Test message' but not card? What does HipChat return, any errors?
