Looker Actions - Hipchat
Looker is launching a Hipchat action, allowing customers to send a message to a Hipchat room referencing data within Looker. Messages will be sent by a LookerBot user (that will need to be added to Hipchat). Customers will then be able to send messages in any Hipchat room that the LookerBot has access to referencing Looker on a one-off or scheduled basis.
Enable the Hipchat Action
Note: Your Looker instance must be on Looker 5.6.
To enable the action in Looker, go to your Admin panel and the Actions Tab under the Platform header [your-instance.looker.com/admin/actions]. (Admin > Platform > Actions)
Select “Enable” on the Hipchat Action.
In your Hipchat User administration console, create a Lookerbot user and then generate an API key for the LookerBot user [e.g. https://hipchat.com/account/api]. (Hipchat -> Create User -> Create API Key). The scopes should include Send Message, Send Notification, and View Group.
Copy your Hipchat LookerBot API key and paste into the Looker Actions Page.
Send data to Hipchat
Great, now you’ve setup your Action so that Looker can communicate with the Hipchat API!
Create and Send or Schedule a Report
In the Send or Schedule window’s Destination field, select “Hipchat”.
In the Room field, select the room to send the message.
Your new message will be sent to Hipchat!
