We only want users of our application to be able to submit tickets, so we have turned off the "anyone can submit tickets option" and we create user accounts for users and log them in through our application (using JWT).
However, those users may want to CC other people who are not users of our application. Our application users are university staff in certain departments, but on a ticket they may need to CC staff from other departments, staff from outside vendors, even staff from other universities who they may be collaborating with, etc. who do not have user accounts in our application.
It appears that email addresses cannot be CC'd unless they belong to a Zendesk user. If an address is added that doesn't belong to a Zendesk user, it is removed and an error added saying “Error: This user does not have permission to create new user records. The following email addresses have been removed from CC”.
Since a CC only allows that address to receive an email, why do they need to be a Zendesk user? What do we need to do to allow our users to include people who don't have access to our application?
