How to Generate a HipChat Access Token

HipChat uses a different way to specify credentials compared to other Atlassian CLI products. An access token is used in place of user and password parameters.

  1. Use a browser and login to your HipChat session.
  2. Go to Account Setting by clicking on your person icon in the upper, right corner.
  3. Select API Access.
  4. Generate a token (if you haven't done that before). It should be a 40 character token of letters and numbers.
  5. Copy and paste this to use as your token parameter.
