General Information

In Fall 2022, Adobe released Creative Cloud 2023, which continues support for the Named User and Shared Device license models.

Please read the UofI Webstore's KB article for the most current details about Creative Cloud Named User and Shared Device licensing and activation. This supplemental article relates specifically to EPS packages and deployment.

Acrobat Pro DC

Acrobat Pro DC also uses the new licensing model, and Adobe has recently updated Acrobat DC's Named User licensing. Please read this article for more information. For MECM stakeholders, future releases will be under “\Software Library\Overview\Application Management\Applications\MANAGED APPLICATIONS\Adobe\Acrobat DC\*”. Munki stakeholders should use either adobe_acrobat_dc_nul or adobe_acrobat_dc_sdl.

EPS Packages

Due to the login requirements, all MECM and Munki-provided Creative Cloud packages include the Creative Cloud Desktop Application. In addition, all MECM and Munki-provided versions have updates disabled.

Installation with Previous Versions

Installation of EPS-provided Creative Cloud packages will generally behave as expected in terms of interactions with previous versions, with a handful of exceptions for the Munki service.
