Try Atlassian Cloud with existing HipChat Account


My team already has a HipChat account and would now like to add Atlassian Cloud. When I complete the form for the Atlassian Cloud 7-day trial, it throws an error saying "This HipChat domain is not available." Is there a way to sign up for Atlassian Cloud and then connect it to the existing HipChat account?

Hi Tim,

In HipChat cloud, HipChat accounts are always tied to a HipChat group and currently you cannot change the account to operate under a different group (or with multiple groups).

If you are getting a "This HipChat domain is not available" error message, it means that the subdomain is taken by another group and you will have choose another subdomain to use. The subdomain operates as a group identifier mostly and doesn't affect any usability of HipChat. It's mainly a difference of vs

If you sign up at, I believe you get a 30-day trial (instead of a 7-day trial).

Hope this helps!

Hi David, Thanks. In this case, I *am* the other group :) I have the subdomain already. I just want to use it with my Atlassian Cloud account. What I think I'll do is just sign up for the Atlassian Cloud trial without HipChat and then I can upgrade to HipChat Plus separately. Will that work? Tim
