Is there a way to get the hipchat plugin for JIRA to post messages to a room based on project?

Our aim is to enable support staff to rally in a room with the same name as the project and be notified of issues when they are created based on thier priority.

At the moment it is our understanding the hook for the plugin is implemented in a workflow post function. As these workflows can be shared by many projects we cannot see a way to configure the room based on the project the issue was created in.

Does anyone have any ideas on how this could be achieved?

Hi Mark,

I think what you're looking for is outlined on this documentation. You also said about notifying the room based on the issue priority. Basicaly you'll have to add the post function (in the Create Issue transition) of type 'Notify HipChat' and build your JQL Query to search for issues in a specific project and ordered by 'priority'.

Hope this helps!

If you read the comments on the you will see that if you share a workflow across a number of projects you will be unable to 'route' messages to a specific room based on the project.

To over come this I have forked the project, thankfully it was open sourced by some great people at Atlassian, and modified it so that it provides an option to also check for room with a name that matches the key of the project.

Fork is here

Going to test these changes this week then push them back to the origininal version.

You can also have a look at this plugin.

A different version created from the original code, for a customer. We decided to publish it.

Looks good but slightly different to what I need, also I would prefer to use the open source one as we may need to make changes inthe future.

Thanks for posting though.
