Adobe Asset Link is a feature to directly access assets stored in AEM from within your Creative Cloud (CC) applications, such as Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator or XD.
It consists of an extension that needs to be deployed to the CC app(s) and an endpoint on the AEM side. This article will outline the setup process and point out some pitfalls.
Deploying the Asset Link Plugin
I’m currently not aware of a way to deploy the Asset Link extension to an already existing CC installation. Instead, it needs to be included in a dedicated installation package for CC apps that can be created and retrieved through the Adobe Admin Console. To do this, your Adobe ID will need the according permissions in the Admin Console. Once you are logged in, select “Packages” from the main navigation and got to “Packages” where you will find a “Create a Package” button
