HipChat is an instant messaging app built for businesses. The team chat tool lets you share files and discuss tasks in real-time with colleagues, project collaborators, and even clients through unlimited chat rooms.

This integration allows you to get real-time updates of what is happening in your Postman team. You can configure HipChat with Postman to monitor results, view a team’s activity feed, and use a HipChat Webhook URL.

  1. In the Integrations page, find HipChat from a list of Postman’s 3rd party Integrations for Postman Pro users.

The Team Activity Feed is where you can monitor your team’s API development and track changes. This integration updates you on all of your Collection edits in HipChat itself so you don’t have to go back into the Postman app to review your team’s activity.
