Bamboo for HipChat
Bamboo for HipChat, made by Atlassian, allows you to send Bamboo build notifications directly into your HipChat room. You can get a notification in a HipChat room when a build passes or fails, when you are assigned responsibility for breaking a build and many other types of notification events. We use Bamboo for HipChat internally, to receive real-time notifications for our Bamboo builds. We collaborate and provide feedback based on the results that are posted from Bamboo.
