I have a groovy script running as ScriptRunner listener. It pings our HipChat rooms from the script. The code to @mention a user in the script, which works, is <hc-mention>@ryan</hc-mention> for example. My question is how I can lookup in the groovy script what a user's @mention handle is. If they were all the same format I'd be fine but people can adjust their handles and make them just first name for example. I need a way to look them up in the script.
In order to look up a user's mention, you either need to compare it to the list of all users by calling https://www.hipchat.com/docs/apiv2/method/get_all_users or you need to have the user's ID and call https://www.hipchat.com/docs/apiv2/method/view_user. If you keep a local cache of all the users that gets refreshed periodically, this could help you do the lookup more quickly.
