Enabling Self-Service

Self-Service for Admin Users is easy! Simply direct users to download the Creative Cloud Application to start installing on their own.

Self-Service for Non-Admin users. Create a Creative Cloud Application installer package with Elevated Privileges enabled. Deploy the package to your end-users and they can install the software on their own.

After logging into the Creative Cloud app, Admin and Non-Admin users can install and update Creative Cloud software on their own.

Traditional Deployment

Easily Create Installer Packages on the Admin Console: In this workflow, IT creates a package and installs it onto desktop computers. You can build ready-to-install packages for either Mac or Windows on the Admin Console.

Want to control updates? No problem. You can turn off updates when building a package.
