I'd like to see Stride available as a self-hosted product to replace our current use of self-hosted Hipchat - is this in the works? All references I see about Stride availability are specifically for the cloud hosted version.
My team started using Hipchat a couple years ago after getting booted from Slack by corporate security. We have a self-hosted version of Hipchat.
A couple ground-level things Hipchat lacks:
I'm assuming that Stride has fixed these issues, and I'd love for us to move to Stride if we can.
EDIT: I have reviewed the FAQs about availability of this via HipChat Data Center but I am left with more questions: 1) what's the difference between HipChat Data Center and HipChat Server (and which one does my company have)? and 2) the screenshots in the HipChat Data Center FAQ appear to be HipChat reskinned, which assumes the same functionality as HipChat currently has - is that the case, or will the actual Stride apps be used?
As you mentioned from the FAQs, Hipchat Data Center will continue to be our self-hosted team communication solution and we will not be releasing a self-hosted version of Stride. We're increasing our investment in Hipchat Data Center and have shared some of our updates that are coming soon. Read more here.
One of those updates is a new iOS application (and applications for Linux, Windows, Mac, and Android), and one of the first improvements will be around improved notifications, specifically finding unread messages in the application as you describe. You can sign up today to be notified when the beta is available.
Message editing is a feature we are considering post the launch of the new applications. You can follow this ticket to stay updated.
If you know who administers your HipChat Server/Data Center instance, they should be able to tell you which product you currently have.
Otherwise, you should have been given a URL to enter into your HipChat client connecting to the server at this screen:
If you take the same URL and enter it into a web browser, you should reach the web interface for your organization's server. Log in here with the same credentials you use for your client.
The way the next screen looks will identify if your organization has HipChat Server or HipChat Data Center, as illustrated below -
HipChat Data Center
I hope that helps!
+1. I'd like to see an on-prem version for the same reason as Andrew mentioned above. We have a tight security policy where we need the data to live locally. I wouldn't mind testing it with our teams here, but if it's cloud based only, not sure if we'll get a full test out of it.
I would also like to see a self-hosted version of Stride since most long-term server customers tend to stay server customers ;-)
Stride has great potential. Our data also have to be on our own servers so self-hosting is a requirement.
Atlassian, please reconsider this carefully if Stride is what you say it is or will be.
We don't use Slack, as it is cloud only. Even though most of our developers were clamoring for it, corporate security won't allow it. So, we settled for a trial of HipChat Server.
If Stride is cloud-only, then it really is no better than Slack, and here I thought Stride was supposed to be the Slack killer....
I did, but that requires your company to have HipChat Data Center vs HipChat Server (no idea what the difference is). Also, those apps appear to be the existing apps reskinned to look like Stride, and leaving me with little confidence that the issues I described above will be resolved.
I'm pretty sure the beta would require Admin capacity, and I'm just a user.
Yes, I saw the FAQ.
It said that Stride deployment model is on the Atlassian Cloud, but then said "possible" that HipChat DC may receive Stride features.
Personally, my users don't want HipChat DC. They want slack. So that means we would want a completely different product: Stride server.
We will need to evaluate stride of course.
Slack now owns the IP for stride and hip chat. I understood from the announcement that they will be incorporating some features into slack. I dont think either will survive as stand alone products any longer. RIP stride. I had great hopes for you one day....And you demo's so well at the 2017 summit.
All good things come to an end - thanks to all our customers and partners who have been along the Hipchat and Stride journey with us. As of Feb 15th 2019, Hipchat Cloud and Stride have reached ...
