HipChat Plugin

Send HipChat messages for new alerts.

If you have the Python Jinja2 package installed you can customize the HipChat message format.

For help, join Gitter chat

Installation

Clone the GitHub repo and run:

$ python setup.py install

Or, to install remotely from GitHub run:

$ pip install git+https://github.com/alerta/alerta-contrib.git#subdirectory=plugins/hipchat

Note: If Alerta is installed in a python virtual environment then plugins need to be installed into the same environment for Alerta to dynamically discover them.

Configuration

Add hipchat to the list of enabled PLUGINS in alertad.conf server configuration file and set plugin-specific variables either in the server configuration file or as environment variables.

PLUGINS = ['hipchat']
HIPCHAT_ROOM = 'alerts'
HIPCHAT_API_KEY =  'W4Dll5plS0qrqXCpPwjwzF9pO2TJI2Oou9Xaq8je'
DASHBOARD_URL = 'http://try.alerta.io'
HIPCHAT_URL = 'https://api.hipchat.com/v2'
HIPCHAT_VERIFY_SSL = True

The HIPCHAT_SUMMARY_FMT configuration variable is a Jinja2 template string and accepts any Jinja2 syntax. The formatter has access to two variables in the template environment, 'alert' for all alert details and 'config' for access to the alerta configuration.

If you have Jinja2 available you can try customizing the message like this:

HIPCHAT_SUMMARY_FMT = '<b>[{{ alert.status|capitalize }}]</b> [{{ alert.severity|upper }}] Event {{ alert.event }} on <b>{{ alert.resource }}</b> <a href="{{ config.DASHBOARD_URL }}/#/alert/{{ alert.id }}">{{ alert.id[:8] }}</a>'
