How to Get Started With HipChat#

The first thing you'll need to do is connect your HipChat Account to Zapier. After you sign up and start creating the Zap you want, Zapier will ask you to start the process:

Connect your HipChat account to Zapier

You can then give your Account a title or label, which is just for your convenience and helps you track multiple accounts. It doesn't have any affect on which Account you actually add to Zapier. In this dialog you will also need to add your admin API key, which can be found at http://hipchat.com/groups/api.

Label your HipChat account

If you see the following error, you added an API key that is not an admin API key. Double check the API key type.

Confirm or reauthorize Zapier's access

Finally, your accout will be added and verified to be in working condition.

Account added and tested

Now you can continue creating your Zap.
