FYI,  Reminders are not ticket fields, they are new tickets of 'Type' 'remind' created with a reference to
the main ticket (RefersTo), the things to do as subject, the due date ... as
due date and the targeted user as owner. So you can get them individually with
the standard RT API.

here is a "scrip" I made yesterday for sending a mail to the owner when
a reminder is created, maybe it can help you:



User defined:

my $trans = $self->TransactionObj;

# OnCreate:
return(undef) unless $trans->Type eq "Create";

# Only reminders
return(undef) unless $trans->TicketObj->Type eq "reminder";



Send to owner as comment


Subject: New reminder: {$Ticket->Subject}


A new reminder for the ticket {$Ticket->RefersTo->First->TargetObj->Id} has been assigned to you.

  Subject: {$Ticket->Subject}
  Due: {$Ticket->DueObj->AsString} ({$Ticket->DueObj->AgeAsString})
  URL: {$RT::WebURL}Ticket/Display.html?id={$Ticket->RefersTo->First->TargetObj->Id}
