Transfer assets across accounts or profiles

Storage is a core component of Adobe's cloud offering. Cloud storage ensures that you can always access your content and related services. It allows you to manage your Creative Cloud assets and Document Cloud assets. With the Creative Cloud assets, you can even enable collaboration and sharing among users. Creative Cloud also helps you sync your content to your desktop. All content created or uploaded by you is tied to your account.

Often, users may be required to move assets:

  • From a personal Adobe ID account to an enterprise-owned account.
  • From an account under one email address to another. The email address may be an alternate email address, or it may be the email address of another user.
  • Across profiles (Business Profile -> Business Profile, Business Profile -> Personal Profile, Personal Profile -> Business Profile).

If you have assets linked to an existing account or profile, you can migrate these assets from one account or profile to another. The migration can either be done automatically or manually.
