The deployment console allows you to create custom packages . The create workflow provides you with granular control of what applications are included in a package. You can also specify settings such as the targeted platform and language.

Create packages via Deployment Panel

You can use the Deployment Panel to create custom packages, such as:

  • Packages with a custom combination of applications, which is not available in pre-created packages.
  • Updates-only packages
  1. Select the Deployment Panel from the Admin console, and open the Packages tab.

  2. Click Create Package.

    packages-list
  3. The Configure screen is displayed.

    create-package-configure

    Fill in the required details, and select the appropriate options.

    Enable RUM to remotely invoke the updater on client machines: To enable the use of Remote Update Manager, select this option. Adobe Remote Update Manager lets you remotely run the updater on the client with the benefit of executing as an administrator. For more information, see Remote Update Manager.

    Enable Apps Panel for self-service install and update: To show/hide the Apps panel in Creative Cloud desktop application for end users. Enabling /disabling the Apps Panel automatically enables/ disables the updates on the client machines.

    Enable end users to manage applications and updates themselves: Allows end users to install and manage their applications.

    Platform: choose the operating system and the processor support (32 bit or 64 bit). It's necessary to make separate packages for 32-bit and 64-bit installations. A 32-bit package can't run on a 64-bit machine.

    Language: You can select the language you want to package in.

    Use OS Locale when available: Select to create a package that deploys in the client machine's OS language. In which case, the OS language is the default fallback language in which the package is deployed.

  4. Click Continue. The Choose Applications screen appears.

    create-package-choose-applilcations
  5. To add the application to the Selected list, hover over the application and click .

    By default, the list shows the latest version of applications, to view previous versions of applications, select the Show Older check-box.

    You can even filter the Applications by name.

    The Add All option allows you to add all the Available applications to the list of Selected applications

    Note:

    If you add a product that has dependent products, the dependent product is added automatically. You can choose to remove the dependent products. For example, if you add Photoshop, Camera Raw is added automatically.

  6. To remove an application from the Selected list, hover over the application name, and click .

    The application now appears in the Available list again.

    The Remove All option allows you to remove all the applications from the Selected list. These applications then appear again in the list of Available applications.

  7. Click Continue after the list of Selected applications is ready.

  8. The Finalize screen displays a summary of the package you have configured.

    Enter a name for the Package under Package Name.

    Note:

    The Package Name must have fewer than 40 characters and must not contain special characters.

    create-package-finalize
  9. Click Build Package.

    The new package now appears in the Packages tab, in the Deployment Console. You can download it again, if necessary.

    Note:

    The download link will be available for three days after package creation /customization.

Create packages via Creative Cloud Packager

You can use Creative Cloud Packager to create custom packages when you require licensing other than named, for example serial number-based licensing.

The Creative Cloud Packager can be downloaded from the Admin Tools option on the right top of Deployment Panel. The packages created through Creative Cloud Packager are listed in Deployment panel but are not available for download through the Deployment panel.

Also, review the system requirements before you download and install Creative Cloud Packager.

For more information on creating and deploying packages, see Creative Cloud Packager Help.
