WebStore, Adobe Creative Cloud 2019 Software Release

Adobe Creative Cloud 2019 now includes Lab and Classroom support.

Adobe Enterprise Serial number expiring February 5, 2020.

It is Adobe's intention to move away from serialized installations. The Enterprise serial number we used to create the current serialized installation packages (CC 2018) will expire, and the applications will begin to prompt users to Sign in to continue to use the software.

Adobe releases Creative Cloud 2019 now with lab support?

As promised, Adobe has provided Shared Device Licensing (SDL) to provide support for Adobe Platform applications in Labs and Classrooms. The SDL installation packages in conjunction with an Adobe Enterprise Student Spark ID will allow students to use the Adobe Application platform on Lab and Classroom computers. All students are automatically assigned a free Adobe Enterprise Student Spark ID for this purpose. Also, we now can create Named User installation packages that can be used by IT to deploy and manage Adobe software on University desktops.

What does this mean for the IT community?

Two new WebStore offers have been created for the distribution of the SDL and Named User packages. Also, Tech Services EndPoint Services has both types of installation packages available for their customers.

NOTE: This software may not be installed or used in a Remote Desktop environment. This type of use is not included in the license agreement and is not supported by Adobe.

Highlight of some changes you will see below.

Shared Device (SDL) licensing for University-owned Shared Devices includes labs, classrooms, and other shared University computers such as those used by Student Employees or Staff.

Sign in every two hours is no longer required on the SDL license type.

IT Staff can choose to deploy the SDL license type installation across all of their University managed computers, except Laptops.

Be aware; the Sign-in windows will indicate that the computer is a shared device.
