Note The company I work for no longer uses HipChat so maintaining this is much harder. If anyone is interested in taking this over and handling checking out the pull requests or fixing issues drop me a line and I'll hand over the reigns. I won't be making anymore updates here.


An easy to use C# wrapper on the V2 Hipchat API

Can be installed through nuget.

Install-Package Hipchat-CS

Not all methods are added yet, but if you find something you need, feel free to create a pull request, or request support for it in the issues.

Getting Started

Before you can use any of the methods you need an API key, or an auth token.

The easiest method is to login to hipchat, click on Account Settings, click on API Access and you should see your personal bearer token there

Auth pic

Using this method will access the api as yourself (all notifications/messages sent will be from you).

Once you have your api key, you can easily use the api

var client = new HipchatClient(apiKey);

//assume we have a room named 'My Room'
client.SendNotification("My Room", "This is your captain speaking");

All methods have several optional paramaters and or overloads, fully documented. Check intellisense.


//will look for an environment variable named 'hipchat_auth_token',
//or you can pass it in via the constructor
var client = new HipchatClient();

//check source or intellisense for overloads
//create a default room with whoever the api key holder is as owner
HipchatCreateRoomResponse testRoom = client.CreateRoom("My Test Room");

//send a message to the created room with the green background color
client.SendNotification(testRoom.Id, "Hello from Api!", RoomColors.Green);

//delete the room, kicking everyone out
