Unable to access HipChat.ova via VirtualBox

I'm trying to create a HipChat Server instance on my MacBook to test if it is a good fit for my company. I have VirtualBox (5.2.6) installed and running. I've created a VM per System Requirements (https://confluence.atlassian.com/hc/deploying-hipchat-server-609944387.html#DeployingHipchatServer-DeployingfromanOVAImage), and have downloaded the .ova file.

However, when I attempt to add the .ova file from the storage settings, the downloaded file is greyed out on all 'Adds Optical Drive' options. If I change the file type to 'all files', I'm able to select the .ova file, but then get an error. 

How do I connect my VirtualBox VM to the HipChat .ova?

Found it: File > Import Appliance > browse to the location of the .ova
