Why add users to Adobe Admin Console

As an admin on the Adobe Admin Console, after you've chosen your identity type and set up identity, your next task is to add users to the Admin Console.

Adobe enterprise and teams, broadly defines two types of users:

Administrators (admins)

Enterprise or teams admins perform administrative tasks on the Admin Console. So, you add admins to define a flexible administrative hierarchy that enables fine-grained management of Adobe product access, and usage, and other administrative tasks.

All admins must be added to the Admin Console. When adding them, the administrative privileges are based on their administrative roles.

End users

End users are the users in your organization or institution who use the Adobe products and services that your organization or institution has obtained as part of the agreement with Adobe.

Decide your user management strategy

Depending on your requirements, you add, remove, or update users individually or you can use one of the available bulk upload methods. Use the following matrix as a guide to plan your user management.

If you're a new Adobe enterprise or teams customer, we recommend that you go through this table before you start managing your users on the Admin Console. Existing customers can use this, especially, if they're planning to migrate from one identity type to another (see Edit identity type).

Create packages

Once added, your users are ready to be assigned with their designated apps and services.

Assign licenses to end users based on your licensing method:

Named User Licensing: Add these users to products (for teams) or product profiles (for enterprises) to give them Adobe product and service entitlements. For more details, see how to create Named User Licensing packages and product profiles.

Shared Device Licensing: Added users can use the configured shared devices which are accessible by Organization users only. For more details, see Create SDL Packages.
