I figured out how to create the comment record, but since I'm doing this days after the event occurred, the ever is for the date that I export. I'd like to back date my entries into RT to be the same date and time as my time record. Is there a way to do this with the API, or should I just insert into postgresql directly? Anyone else doing anything similar, or have a better idea?

Have you seen our relatively new RT::Extension::TimeTracking extension? https://metacpan.org/pod/RT::Extension::TimeTracking <https://metacpan.org/pod/RT::Extension::TimeTracking>

Among other things, this extension lets you backdate time worked (which is guarded using permissions on the "Worked Date" custom field that the extension provides).
