      Retrieving the cc user is not supported (atm) on Exalate for Zendesk.  Still it is possible to use the httpClient to retrieve the necessary information.
      Zendesk is providing a REST endpoint to extract that information from the environment - check

      How can this be used to extract the required information from the ticket

      Check following code

      Outgoing sync - Zendesk side
      def response = httpClient.get("/api/v2/tickets/${ticket.id}/email_ccs")
      if (response.count > 0) {
          def firstUser = response.users.first()
          replica.customKeys.ccName = firstUser.name
          replica.customKeys.ccEmail = firstUser.email

      • On line 1 - httpClient is used to retrieve the email_ccs from the ticket.  The ticket is identified with the ticket.id

      • On line 3 - test if the response contains a number of emails. 
      • On line 4 - Note there can be multiple emails, this example is returning the first user returned by the Zendesk API
      • On line 6 and 7 - extract the information contained in the firstUser object (name and email)

      On the other side (assume Jira) following logic can be applied to fill in a text field with a wiki renderer

      Incoming sync - Jira
      // fill custom field 'cc' in case the ccName and email are provided
      if (replica.customKeys.ccName > "") {
         issue.customFields.cc.value = "[${replica.customKeys.ccName}|mailto:${replica.customKeys.ccEmail}]"
