Bamboo Hipchat Plugin Error

I've set up the Atlassian Bamboo HipChat plugin and created a notification using it. No message is ever sent to the room and in the bamboo-stdout.log file I see the following error:

Any idea what's going on here? I feel like something is out of date... I am using the latest version of the plugin (5.1.1).

I feel like something is out of date... I am using the latest version of the plugin (5.1.1).

My guess is your Bamboo server is too old for the plug-in version you're using. 

The error says that the com.atlassian.bamboo.variable.CustomVariableContext.getVariableSubstitutorFactory() method is missing.  According to the API that method has been in Bamboo since 5.9, so my guess is you are using a version of Bamboo older than that.

You're right, we're on 5.8.1. 

Thanks
