I _have read_ it well. So that's why didn't ask why the AdminCC is not
notified, because I knew that the script execution is random. Actually,
Notify AdminCcs currently notifies only Queue Watchers. Am I right?

I finally did it in two scripts ;)

I left On Create as it is, in its default configuration. I have another
On Create script with custom action, adding AdminCcs based on certain
criteria (ifs). Then, I have another scrip, with custom condition, which
will be triggered when an AdminCc will be added. 

This solution actually is better for me, since it has wider use. The
AdminCc will be notified always, that he/she was added, no matter on the
ticket's stage.  Currently, correct me if I'm wrong, an AdminCc will
receive his first email about a ticket, only if a comment/correspondence
will be added. 

I want to notify AdminCc right after adding him, since you do not know
when the first transaction (after adding him/her) will occur.

I personally think that my solution is better ;) since I killed two
birds with one stone :) Maybe it's worth to be added to next release of
RT as a default script action? :)

Thanks for your help.
$self->TicketObj->SetStatus('resolved');  :)
