What happens to Private Room after the user is removed?

Hi All,

I have a user created and the user has private room in which he has shared some ideas.

Now the user is deleted from HipChat, what happens to the private room?

Can some other user be made as owner of the room so that the room be active?

Can admin view the chat history of the private room?

Can admin remove the private room?

When a user is deleted, any rooms they created will have their ownership automatically transferred to the HipChat account owner. Nothing should be affected with regard to room access, however. Any user who previously had access should continue to be able to view and chat in the room.

Admins can always view history and delete private rooms. For instructions on managing rooms, check out https://confluence.atlassian.com/hipchat/chat-in-rooms-740001121.html - it will explain how to change the room owner as well as edit or delete any room as an admin.
