Frequently asked questions.

I have an Adobe Admin Console already, do I need a new one for Creative Cloud Express?

Good news, you do not need a new console but can access Adobe Creative Cloud Express within your existing Adobe Admin Console. Login to https://adminconsole.adobe.com and then click on Products and select Adobe Creative Cloud Express.

My school is not using Google or Azure – can I still give access to Creative Cloud Express to my students?

Google Workspace or Google are simple to syncronise users and enable Single Sign-On. You can use other SAML based authentication. There is another method know as Enterprise IDs. This requires you to prove ownership of a domain and upload users via CSV. The users will be sent an invite to their email address. Their password is stored with Adobe and may require 2 factor authentication for loggin in.
Can the school use generic user accounts and share them?
Adobe Creative Cloud Express relies on each user having their individual access. Multiple logins to the same account may trigger two factor authentication codes to be entered to login. There is also the risk of documents being deleted or edited by others using the same account.

No, Adobe Creative Cloud Express is browser-based. Students and teachers simply need to login at https://express.adobe.com/sp/, login, and they can start creating.
