Wondering why you are receiving errors like the one below when sharing links or inviting collaborators to Creative Cloud or Document Cloud assets?
"Enterprise Sharing Restrictions Enabled. This user can’t be invited because your organization has enabled sharing restrictions. Learn more."
Enterprise sharing restrictions refer to a feature called Asset Settings that your IT administrator has used to strengthen security control of your organization’s assets. It can save you from accidental violation of your organization’s data ownership and security policies.
Sharing restrictions are only applied to content owned by an organization. They do not apply to content created by users with a personal Adobe ID.
Your IT administrator can select from three options within Asset Settings, each indicating a different level of sharing restriction:
The following sharing and publishing functionalities in Creative Cloud and Document Cloud are impacted when either No public link sharing or Sharing Limited to Org members and Truster Users is selected:
|Creative Cloud Assets||Get link, Invitations, Share to Slack|
|Creative Cloud Libraries||Get link, Invitations, Share to Slack|
|Creative Cloud (desktop and mobile)||Get link, Invitations|
|Adobe Comp||Share, Send to Behance|

Adobe Sign features are not affected. The features continue to work as expected.
No restrictions is the default setting, but IT administrators can change this to a more restrictive setting. If this occurs, then existing and future sharing is impacted.
If No public link sharing is set, any existing public links to organization content are disabled or deleted and new public links cannot be created.
If Sharing Limited to Org Members and Trusted Users is set, then any existing public links to organization content are disabled or deleted, and any sharing with users or groups outside of the organization or its claimed, trusted, or allow-listed organizations is removed. New public links cannot be created. Also, sharing with users that are not org members or trusted users is denied.
To change future sharing abilities, the IT administrator can change the setting to a less restrictive option.
If you encounter issues with Enterprise sharing restrictions and if you want to continue sharing organization-owned assets with specific external organizations or individuals, you can contact your IT Admin to request the following:
