Assign products to users

How you use the products purchased by your organization, depends on:

Type of agreement or licensing methods

  • Teams customers: Add teams users to the product plan to assign licenses to the users. Read details.
  • Named User Licensing (enterprise) customers: Create a product profile for this product and then add users to that product profile. Read details.
  • Shared User Licensing (education) customers: Create a shared device license profile for this product and then add users to that product profile. Read details.

Type of product

Assign Users: Products such as Creative Cloud All Apps, single app products such as Photoshop or XD, Acrobat, and Adobe Acrobat Sign have the option to assign users. For each license, you assign one user to that product. So, for the Creative Cloud All Apps product, if you assign a user to that product, that user is licensed to use every Adobe app or service available.

Assign Developers: Allow developers in your organization to integrate, extend, or create apps and experiences based on Adobe's products and technologies. Read details.
