This page is to assist IT Professionals (ITPs) who are device administrators setting up shared device licenses. For single user licenses, see the Named User License Download and Setup
Users of Adobe software should use their Identikey to log in to all Adobe services using the Federated Identity Service, and their Identikey will serve as their Adobe ID. For more information, please see the Adobe Creative Cloud - Named User License Download and Setup page.
The installation package has our campus license agreement information embedded, so when you install on a workstation, the Device Name of that workstation will appear on the campus Adobe admin console. "Device Name" has a specific meaning in this context; it is not an arbitrary name for the computer, and it is the only way to identify this license in the future. Mac administrators in particular should double-check on how their Device Name is set, before installing the Adobe software. Any license that appears on the campus admin console with an unrecognized Device Name will be deactivated.
The license for that workstation will be deactivated in the campus Adobe admin console and the software will cease to function on that workstation. You will need to contact OIT Software Licensing at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the current device name. You will then need to re-deploy the installation package to that computer.
Once deployed, the shared device license is tied to a computer. If the computer is re-imaged, you just need to re-deploy the package to that computer.
