Where are comments and correspondence held?

Running RT 4.0.6. Curious where the content of comments and/or *
correspondence* resides in the database?

correspondence resides in the database?

In the transactions table, as I recall.

Actually in the attachments tabel.

Yep - each Ticket has 1…n transactions in the Transactions table, and each Transaction has 0…n attachments in the Attachments table. The content of each comment or correspondence resides in the Attachments table. It’s often encoded, so it’s not always trivial to extract the content with simple SQL. For example, the following naïve query gets the attachment rows for a ticket:

SELECT a.* FROM Tickets t, Transactions tx, Attachments a
WHERE t.id = 294774
AND tx.ObjectId = t.id
AND tx.ObjectType = ‘RT::Ticket’
AND tx.id = a.TransactionId;

But generally you don’t want to do that, and instead you want to use the perl API to get at them:

my $attachments = RT::Attachments->new(RT->SystemUser);
$attachments->LimitByTicket(294774);
$attachments->LimitNotEmpty;

while (my $a = $attachments->Next) {
print $a->Content, “\n\n”;
}

But generally you don’t want to do that, and instead you want to use the
perl API to get at them:

my $attachments = RT::Attachments->new(RT->SystemUser);
$attachments->LimitByTicket(294774);
$attachments->LimitNotEmpty;

And if you just want Comments, say, you can do

my $attachments = RT::Attachments->new(RT->SystemUser);
$attachments->LimitByTicket(294774);
$attachments->Limit(
  ALIAS           => $attachments->TransactionAlias,
  FIELD           => 'Type',
  OPERATOR        => '=',
  VALUE           => 'Comment',
  ENTRYAGGREGATOR => 'OR',
  CASESENSITIVE   => 1
);

while (my $attachment = $attachments->Next)
{

(If there’s an easier way to do that, please let me know)
