By 'work', you mean 'How can I refer to it in my code?', yes?

As RT depends on DBIx::SearchBuilder, you get to use magic in the
_ClassAccessible method of RT::Ticket, such as:

	Client_id => { 'read' => 1, 'write' => 1 },

After adding the above, a given RT::Ticket object then inherits two extra
methods from SearchBuilder, being ->Client_id() and ->SetClient_id() for
listing and setting the Client_id field on a given ticket.

You can then also use Client_id in RT::Tickets->Limit() when searching.

You'll need to ensure that RT::Ticket->Create 'knows' about Client_id
