Which css attributes are allowed in a Hip Chat notification ?


I send notification to a Hip Chat room using the REST API.

Everything works well, however some css attributes in my html are removed :


<img style="width:50px; padding-right: 15px;" src="http://url/to/image.png"/>

the width attribute is kept, but padding-right is removed.

It is annoying as I can't get the exact layout I want.


Is there a white list of css attributes that can be used in a notification ?

Could you point me to the relevant document ?

Hi Christophe,

We currently accept the following basic CSS attributes for HTML messages sent via the API:


Our API docs only state the accepted HMTL tags, but we do have plans to include additional info on styling soon -



Thanks for your answer Jeison. It might be a good idea to add this information to the documentation :-) Cheers

I was disappointed when none of my embedded styles had no affect. Simple align right for instance. It is now 1.5 years later, when is "soon"?

Same here. I can't believe it's june 2017 and a simple "text-align"="right" won't work..
