Introduction

As the administrator of the Adobe enterprise organization, you can make Creative Cloud and Document Cloud applications available to your end users in two ways:

Self service

Like millions of Adobe users, you can allow your creatives to install applications and updates via the Creative Cloud Desktop application. This reduces IT overhead and ensures your creatives have access to all the tools they need and receive updates as soon as they are released.

If you want to enable self service but your end users do not have administrative privileges, you can create a package with elevated privileges turned on. For details, see Customize Packages.

Managed Packages

Using Managed packages, you can decide what get’s deployed and when it gets updated. You can create the packages that contain Adobe products and updates. These packages can then be deployed to the user's computers in your organization. You can even perform silent and custom deployment where no inputs are required from your users during installation.

If you plan to use Managed packages, then the Deployment panel provides the following options:

  • Download pre-configured packages by using Adobe Templates
  • Create completely customized packages with the configuration and applications you want your end users to have
  • Enable e-mail notifications, so you get notified when new product updates become available
  • View previous packages you or other administrators in your organisation have created. Also, view details of a specific package and track available updates for the apps in the package
  • Download the IT tools like Remote Update Manager and Adobe Update Server Setup Tool

Using the Deployment panel

Download Adobe Templates

One click easy downloads for the most popular configurations. You can also make small modifications and adjust settings like language.

For more information, see Download Adobe Templates for Packages.

Customize Packages

Using the Deployment Panel, you can customize the popular options for the pre-created Adobe Templates.

For more information, see Customize Packages.

Create Packages

The create workflow provides you with granular control of what applications get included in your packagers.

For more information, see Create Packages.

Manage Packages

View, track, and delete packages created by you or your peer administrators for the same organization. You can also track available updates to the apps in a particular package, and plan to deploy those updates accordingly.

For more information, see Manage Packages.

Admin Tools

Download the Creative Cloud Packager, Adobe Update Server Setup Tool, or Remote Update Manager from the Admin Tools option on the upper right of Deployment Panel.

Creative Cloud Packager

Adobe Creative Cloud Packager makes it easy for you to create packages that contain Adobe Creative Cloud products and updates. These packages can then be deployed to the client machines in your organization.

For more information, see Packager.

Adobe Update Server Setup Tool

Adobe Update Server Setup Tool allows you to set up an on-premise server that hosts Creative Cloud updates. It allows IT to save bandwidth and control when Updates become available for end users.

For more information, see Using Adobe Update Server Setup Tool.

Remote Update Manager

Remote Update Manager allows you to remotely call the updater on a client machine. It allows you to seamlessly manage when your client systems install updates. You can specify a particular product or update all products at the same time. When used with the Adobe Update Server Setup tool, the updates are pulled from your own premise server.
