Adobe Asset Link streamlines collaboration between creatives and marketers in the content creation process. It connects Adobe Experience Manager Assets (AEM Assets) with Creative Cloud desktop apps Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. The Adobe Asset Link panel allows creatives to access and modify content stored in AEM Assets without leaving the creative apps they are most familiar with. Key capabilities include, but are not limited to:
Searching across AEM Assets and Creative Cloud Assets
Checking out/in content stored in AEM Assets to prevent duplicate work by team members and to maintain a single source of truth
Keeping work-in-progress assets and final production assets in separate locations
Enabling new assets to be uploaded to AEM Assets
Easily access through Single Sign On (SSO) with Creative Cloud account credentials
One or more valid Creative Cloud for enterprise subscriptions (Creative Cloud for enterprise All Apps plan or Single App plans) for Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign.
Proxy environments (for example Kerberos) are not currently supported
AEM Assets 6.4.0-6.4.3 require installation of an extra Feature Pack on AEM. For more information, see Configuring AEM Assets for Adobe Asset Link.
AEM 6.3 requires extra modules to be installed. However, the AEM 6.3 maintenance roadmap does not provide more Feature Packs for this version.

For more information about Adobe Asset Link and AEM 6.3 deployments, contact Enterprise Support for AEM and review Configuring AEM Assets 6.3 for Adobe Asset Link.
