ok, so far so good, I'm using an API token, I can access the right, and when I do an inspect on an iteration of ticket, I get:

<Lighthouse::Ticket:0x24fea3c @attributes={"permalink"=>"111508-partners-on-sale-in-new-locations", "updated_at"=>Mon Nov 10 19:58:38 UTC 2008, "title"=>"11/15/08 - Partners on sale in new locations", "number"=>72, "creator_id"=>35396, "tag"=>"framework", "attachments_count"=>1, "priority"=>17, "closed"=>false, "user_id"=>29791, "assigned_user_id"=>29791, "milestone_id"=>22088, "created_at"=>Thu Nov 06 17:37:05 UTC 2008, "state"=>"open"}, @prefix_options={:project_id=>15923}>

where is the body?

I need to access the actual body of the ticket, any suggestions?

    The body attribute is a special case, because ActiveResource would basically send the same value if all you did was change the state. You can get the comment history of a ticket if you find a single ticket:

    ticket = Lighthouse::Ticket.find 1, :params => {:project_id => 1}
    ticket.versions.each do |version|
      puts version.body

    That is exactly the code I want, but I always get this error

    undefined method ‘versions’ for #<Lighthouse::Ticket:0x580d04> (on the ticket.versions line)

    when running your code against the following code

    projects = Lighthouse::Project.find(:all) project = projects[0]

    tickets = Lighthouse::Ticket.find :all, :params => {:project_id =>} ticket = tickets[0] puts "ticket.title: #{ticket.title}" ticket.versions.each do |version| puts version.body end

    I figured out what my problem is. When you get tickets as an array of tickets, they don't have versions. You have to do a search for the specific ticket to get the version information.
