What is Campfire?
Campfire (http://campfirenow.com/) is a web-based group chat tool that lets you set up password-protected chat rooms in just seconds. Invite a client, colleague, or vendor to chat, collaborate, and make decisions.
Why should I try it out?
We love the idea of people using AgileZen along with other tools that focus on collaboration and communication. Our integration with Campfire allows AgileZen notifications to be displayed within your team's chat room. This lets users stay up to date on the latest in AgileZen, even if they don't have the board open.
How do I set up the Campfire integration in AgileZen?
You must be the project owner to enable integrations
Before you start, you'll need two things from Campfire:
Campfire API Auth Token and Campfire Room URL
We recommend creating a separate Campfire user for the AgileZen notifications, since the notifications will be displayed as from the user whose Campfire API Auth token is used.
To receive your Campfire API Auth Token, log into the Campfire website at http://campfirenow.com/
Next, select the 'My Info' link at the top
Then, copy your API Auth Token to use in the AgileZen Integration setup
Now for the Campfire Room URL, select the chat room in Campfire you would like the AgileZen notifications to appear in
Next, copy the URL from the web address bar at the top
Now you are ready to setup the Campfire integration in AgileZen!
Select the 'Home' tab on the AgileZen project you want to set up Campfire Notifications for
Next, select the 'Integrations' tab
Then, enter the Campfire API Auth Token and the Campfire room URL you would like to send the notifications to
Check the 'Enabled' box
Click the 'Save Changes' button
*Both fields must be filled out for either to save
