The Adobe Admin Console provides a central location for managing your Adobe entitlements across your entire organization.

Sign in

As an administrator, you can access the Admin Console to administer and manage user accounts. Up to five primary 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.

  1. Open a browser and visit https://adminconsole.adobe.com.

  2. Enter your Adobe ID and password, and click Sign In.

    If you have been invited as an additional administrator to the Admin Console, use the login credentials that have been provided to you.

    Note:

    Even though any user can be given admin privileges, Adobe recommends that all Admins continue to use Adobe IDs. Adobe IDs are required for access to Adobe Licensing Website and Support options in the Admin Console.

  3. If you're an Administrator for multiple organizations, select an organization.

    An admin can belong to multiple organizations. For example, if a company has several subsidiaries, each of which has a separate license agreement, or a separate organization under the license agreement, the same Admin may be assigned to all.

Notifications

Admin Console 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 page. Older notifications and notifications that have been dismissed can be viewed from in the Notification side bar for easy access.

To access the Notification sidebar, click the bell icon in the upper right corner. The number, if present, indicates the number of unread notifications in your account. Notification sidebar displays all your notifications in the order they were received with the most recent one at the top. By scrolling down the sidebar, you can read and manage notifications sent in the past.

Products and Users

The Products page of the Admin Console provides the options to manage your products and product profiles. Product profiles let you enable all or a subset of Adobe applications and services available in a plan and customize settings associated with a given product or plan. You can then assign administrators, called Product Administrators, to the product profiles. These administrators add end users to the product profiles that they manage. For more information, see:

For more information, see Packaging apps via the Admin Console.

Settings

Use the Settings page to claim domains, request access to a claimed domain, set up password requirements, limit employees from using specific sharing features, and set up a default email language.

Identity

Adobe uses an underlying identity management system to authenticate and authorize users. If you're using named licensing or are planning to provide access to services, using identities is a requirement. Adobe supports three identity or account types; they use an email address as the user name.

For more information, see Manage identity types.

Authentication settings

Adobe Admin Console supports several password protection levels and policies to ensure safety and security. You can specify to use a password protection level to apply to all users across your organization. For more information, see Authentication settings.

Asset Settings

Asset Settings give an organization control over how its employees share its assets outside the organization. The IT administrator can select a restrictive setting that limits employees from using specific sharing features within Creative Cloud and Document Cloud. Asset Settings are used along with other organizational policy enforcement systems (not provided by Adobe) to ensure that assets are only shared with appropriate external individuals and organizations.

Asset Settings only apply to users with Enterprise IDs or Federated IDs in your organization.

Console settings

Console Settings allow you to choose a default email language for your organization, to receive emails about the status of their accounts, such as notifications of subscription changes or credit card expiration.
