The Adobe Enterprise Dashboard provides a central location for managing your Adobe entitlements across your entire organization.
Administrators can access the Enterprise Dashboard to administer and manage user accounts. Up to five admin accounts can be created during on-boarding. Adobe sends an email invitation to the specified email address. Admins must accept the invitation by clicking the Accept Invitation link in the email, before they can log in.
Once accepted, an administrator can add additional administrators, or promote existing users to an admin role.
The Overview panel shows you a summary of the licenses purchased with your Enterprise Term License Agreement (ETLA). The Overview panel also displays the amount of storage available with each plan.
The Overview is designed to efficiently display a wealth of information. To achieve this the Overview makes use of cards. A card is similar to a page in a book. If the information is too large to fit into a single card, you can click on the dots below the card to display another group of information, just like flipping through a book.
For example, the ETLA has the following licenses as shown on the screen:
- Plans for Creative Cloud apps and services. Click the folder icon next to the Creative Cloud plan to see storage details with each plan.
- If your organization has purchased two or more entitlement plans of the same type, each with different storage configuration, a number will be displayed next to the plan. Clicking the number will display the storage details for each plan of this type.
- Different numbers of Single App licenses for individual Adobe products. Click the folder icon next to the Creative Cloud plan to see storage details with each plan.
- Available sync locations for Creative Cloud for enterprise with managed services plan.
- Document Cloud for enterprise plans
- Marketing Cloud for enterprise plans
- Adobe Stock for enterprise plans
Enterprise Dashboard supports displaying notifications from Adobe with important information related to your organization, such as new features and entitlements, planned maintenance and other information. Up to three of the most recent unread notifications are displayed in the Overview panel. Older notifications and notifications that have been dismissed are stored in the Notification Center for easy access.
To access the Notification Center, click the blue rectangle in the upper right corner. The number in the rectangle represents the number of unread notifications in your account. Notification Center displays all your notifications in the order they were received with the most recent one at the top. By scrolling down the Notification Center, you can read and manage notifications sent in the past.
Creative Cloud uses an underlying identity management system to authenticate and authorize users. If you're using named licensing or are planning to provide access to Creative Cloud services, using an identity provider is a requirement. Adobe currently supports two types of identity providers or account types for Creative Cloud; both use an email address as the user name.
Product configurations and users
Adobe has given enterprise customers access to the new Administrative Roles feature. Instead of requiring administrators to manage via groups, Administrative Roles leverage the concept of product configurations, marking a shift from how Adobe products and services are managed using the Adobe Enterprise Dashboard. Administrators can directly grant users access to products instead of granting access through groups. For more information, see these resources:
