Read More: Manage product profiles.
Create policies that control the applications your users can install and update.
As an admin, on the Admin Console, you will need to apply the required customization settings on a product profile. What this means, is that you apply self-service policies at the product profile level. This then ensures that the policy applies to all end users included in that product profile.
Go to the Permissions tab and click Edit on the Self-service policies line item.
By default, the self-service policy of a product profile is turned off. You will need to explicitly turn on the self-service policy for each product profile, as required.
And, specify the policies as follows:
User Managed policies define the level of control that users have on how and when they install and update applications on their machines.
The Auto-update toggle is enabled and available to end users under preferences. When enabled, it will update end users apps automatically as soon as new versions are released.
If this checkbox is not selected, end users will not see the Auto-update toggle in their Creative Cloud desktop app.
Updates are made available to your end users 30 days after Adobe has released them.
This means that, if Adobe releases a new version of an application today, it will not be visible for 30 days in your end users Creative Cloud desktop app.
The Show older apps toggle will be visible under preferences in your end users Creative Cloud Desktop app if this option is selected. End users have the access to (can update and install) End of life apps such as Adobe Muse. If this option is not selected, end users will not see this toggle in their Creative Cloud Desktop app.
The User Managed options described above are not mutually exclusive. This means that you can check multiple options.
Some example scenarios:
If your Creative Cloud apps are licensed by an organization, how you install and update apps via the Creative Cloud desktop app, will depend on how the admin in your organization has set up the Creative Cloud desktop environment on your computer.
If you see the following screen when you go to the Apps tab on the Creative Cloud desktop app, your admin has disabled the option to install or updates apps on your computer.
