Overview

The comment class

This will probably one of the most troublesome parts of creating a provider for ticketmaster since there are so many different ways comments are handled by different APIs. Keep in mind that if you do need to change/overwrite the methods, you will most likely only need to overwrite #find_by_id, #find_by_attributes, #search, and possibly #initialize as long as their parameters conform to what the find method expects.

Here are the expected attributes:

  • author

  • body

  • id

  • created_at

  • updated_at

  • ticket_id

  • project_id
