Many organizations rely on extensibility to support custom workflows. We have made this process easier by allowing you to bundle extensions into the deployment package you created using the enterprise console. This means installation of your Creative Cloud applications and installation of your extensions happens as part of a single deployment process.

Please follow the instructions below to include extensions in your package:

  1. In the Configure screen, enable Create a folder for extensions & include the Extension Manager command line tool.

    Create folder to manage extensions
  2. After you complete the package creation procedure, the following folder is created in the package folder:

    <package name>/Build/post/addon/ZXP

  3. Download and place the plug-ins and extensions that you need to install as part of the deployment in the above folder.

  4. Deploy the package for the users in your organization.

When you deploy a package that includes plug-ins and extensions, these will be installed in the targeted Adobe products that are installed on the end-user computers.

However, you need to note the following:

  • This deployment method is supported for named-user deployment and does not support anonymous, serialized deployment.
  • When a package is installed on a computer, all products are installed before any included plug-ins or extensions. This implies that any errors encountered installing the plug-ins or extensions will not effect the product installations.
  • Plug-ins or extensions will not be installed on an end-user computer if the targeted Adobe products are not previously installed or are not installed as part of the current package.
  • Encrypted plug-ins or extensions (that are downloaded from Adobe Exchange) are excluded from the installation. So, extensions that have been privately shared, can be deployed using this method as they do not contain encryption.
  • If a plug-in or extension requires users to restart the targeted product, your end users will need to do that before the plug-in or extension is available.
