The export utility automatically encrypts your data. The password you need to provide will be the same one used to decrypt the data if you ever need to import or access the archive file.

To protect your archive file, you're required to provide this password when you import your data into HipChat Data Center. We don't store this password, so be sure to remember it.

You'll pass the password to the export command using the '-p' parameter:

usage: Usage: hipchat export [arguments]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -c, --check           Check status of export
  -e, --export          Export the provided package into the server
  -p PASSPHRASE, --passphrase PASSPHRASE
                        The passphrase to decrypt the package
  -o, --include_oto     Include one to one messages in the export
  -a, --include_attachments
                        Include attachments in the export
                        List of emails that will get notified when the export
                        job is finished, in addition to the server admin
  -u PURGE, --purge-older-than PURGE
                        Delete all exports older than the specified value in
  -n, --cancel          Cancel the current export job
  --all                 Returns all available exports, in a json format



You may need to supply a password for your SSH sessions to your HipChat Server/Data Center environment, also. If so, you can update the script with 'ssh -i <ssh_key>' or similar to authenticate the SSH sessions.
