Deploy Adobe Asset Link

Learn how to deploy the Adobe Asset Link panel for your Creative Cloud users.

You can install Adobe Asset Link if you are assigned the role of a system administrator or deployment administrator in the Adobe Admin Console.

After you install Adobe Asset Link, you can provide the AEM endpoint, which users can add from within Adobe Asset Link. See Add AEM environments


If you want to exercise more control and add endpoints for users, see Manually configure endpoints using assetlink-settings.json.

Adobe has recently introduced Adobe Asset Link for XD to foster collaboration between Adobe XD designers and marketers. Learn more.

Install Adobe Asset Link

To install the Adobe Asset Link panel, include the extension when you build a deployment package in the Adobe Admin Console. Both self-serve and managed packages are supported.

When the deployment package is built, enable the Include Adobe Asset Link option in the Package configuration options. For more information, see Create Named User packages.

Include Adobe Asset Link

You can easily bundle extensions into the deployment package that you create using the Adobe Admin Console. This way, the installation of Creative Cloud applications and extensions happens as part of a single deployment process.


Adobe Asset Link will not install unless an app that supports it is either already installed or is included in the deployment package.

Add AEM environments

After you install the Adobe Asset Link panel, Creative Cloud users can add AEM environments for which they have access permissions. To let a user add a particular AEM environment, grant them the required access permissions. To know how to add AEM environments from the Adobe Asset Link panel, see Manage AEM environments.

Manually configure endpoints using assetlink-settings.json

For new users, you can provision a machine before the user's account is created. Depending upon your operating system, copy the assetlink-settings.json file in one of these locations:

  • macOS: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions.
  • Windows: \Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions.

When the new user launches Adobe Asset Link, it scans for the settings file in the system location. Then, depending upon the operating system, it copies the file to one of the following user areas:

  • macOS: ../Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions
  • Windows: ..\AppData\Adobe\CEP\extensions (Windows)

Ensure that users have read permissions to the folder that contains the assetlink-settings.json file. Also ensure that future users of the deployment machine have read access to the folder.


If the folder path is not available on a device, create the CEP > extensions folder manually.

  1. Download the sample assetlink-settings.json file, and open it in a text editor.

  2. Modify the file to include one or more AEM Assets endpoints.





    Name or URL of the AEM server


    Port number for the AEM server


    Protocol scheme of AEM server URL. Use either HTTP or HTTPS.

    For example, if your AEM server URL is:, the .json file should include the following code:

    • {"aemServer":"","aemPort":"4502","aemScheme":"http"}

    Here are some more samples of .json files:

    • {"aemServer":"","aemPort":"443","aemScheme":"https"}
    • {"aemServer":"localhost","aemPort":"4502","aemScheme":"http"}
    • {"aemServer":"","aemPort":"80","aemScheme":"http"}
