Adobe Stock Integration

Adobe Stock provides access to royalty-free stock images, photos, graphics, vectors, video footage, illustrations, templates, and 3d assets. The Adobe Stock integration automatically uploads licensed assets from your Adobe Stock account (or multiple accounts) to Webdam for a centralized asset management experience.

This integration is part of the Integrations Hub

How to enable the Adobe Stock integration

Contact your Customer Success Manager to learn more about enabling the Adobe Stock integration.

Before setting up the integration

Caution

Adobe Stock for enterprise is required for this integration. You cannot add Adobe Stock to a JWT service account unless you are an Enterprise customer.

Before configuring the integration in Webdam, you will need to generate a Service Account key pair and download an Adobe User Account or Profile credentials as a JSON file attributed to your key. It will require an admin or a user with developer access to Adobe Stock.

  1. Navigate to Adobe's Developer Console, then click Create a new project.

  2. Click Add API.

  3. Select Adobe Stock and click Next.

  4. Select Service Account JWT.

    Important

    Do not select OAuth.

  5. Next, select Generate a key pair. This will create a signed private/public key in a format suitable for Adobe's authentication.

  6. Click on the button to generate key in the lower right corner. This will download a zip file containing the private key to your local machine. Save this file and keep it secure. You will need the key to set up the connection in Webdam.

    Note

    This key will expire after one year, at which time you will need to create a new pair for synchronization.

  7. Click Next. On the following screen, select the Adobe User Account or Profile to attribute the key with.

  8. In the following screen, click Service Account under credentials. Alternatively, navigate to this page by clicking on the project in your Adobe projects list.

    Download these credentials as a JSON file by clicking Download JSON in the top right corner.

  9. Save this file. You will need this and the private key to set up the Adobe Stock integration in Webdam.

How to set up the integration

  1. Navigate to settings_menu.png Settings > Integrations Hub.

  2. Click Browse Integrations in the left sidebar, then Configure in the Adobe Stock section.

  3. Enter a Name for this configuration and click Save.

  4. If you've already configured a Webdam connection, it will be selected. If not, select New authentication to add your Webdam credentials:

    2. In the Private key section, paste the private key you downloaded from Adobe Stock. You will first need to open the downloaded zip file, then copy the key (including header/footer) from the private.key file.

      Note

      This will store the private key securely in the application. It cannot be accessed or viewed by any Webdam associates. Keep this key secure. If lost or expired, generate a new pair from the Adobe Developer Console and update your configuration.

  8. Click Create, then Next.

  9. In the Adobe Client Credentials section, paste the credentials from the JSON package that you downloaded from Adobe Stock. You may first have to open the file in a text editor and copy the contents.

  11. [optional] Sync video and Sync Vectors: If you want Adobe Stock videos and vectorsto be uploaded to your Webdam account, check the box to Sync video or Sync vectors.

    • Select False to sync assets licensed by the Adobe User Account or Profile that you attributed the private keys to. 

  13. Click Next.

  14. Metadata: If you want to map certain Adobe Stock asset fields to your Webdam metadata fields you can do so by following these steps:

    1. Click Add Metadata Map.

    2. Click Choose an option under Adobe Field and select a field from the dropdown.

    3. Then, Choose an option under the Webdam Field that you’d like to map it to.

      Note

      If you leave this section blank, only the default metadata will map to Webdam.

  15. Static Metadata: In addition to mapping metadata, you can automatically add certain metadata values to assets synced from Adobe Stock. For example, you can set an “Asset Type” metadata field to “Stock.”

    1. Click Add a new mapping.

    2. Select the metadata Field from the dropdown, then add the Value that you’d like to add to that field.

  16. Click Next.

  17. Click Finish.

Note

If you have multiple Adobe Stock users and want to synchronize assets by those individual users (but not the entire organization), you will need to set up additional connections for each of them. This will also require each of those users to have their own key pair and credentials generated in the Adobe Developer Console.

How to use the integration

After configuration, all licensed images (and videos and vectors, if enabled) for the connected Adobe Stock account(s) will be uploaded to the selected Webdam folder. Moving forward, any licensed asset will automatically be uploaded to Webdam roughly 2 hours after you license it.

If you delete an Adobe Stock asset from the Webdam DAM, it will not automatically be reuploaded to Webdam. If you delete an Adobe Stock asset from your Adobe Stock account or if your license expires, it will not automatically be deleted from Webdam.

Edit the integration

If you would like to disable or update your Adobe Stock settings, such as to sync (or no longer sync) videos or vectors, you can edit the configuration.
  1. Navigate to settings_menu.png Settings > Integrations Hub.
  2. Click Active Integrations in the left sidebar, then Edit in the section of the connection that you would like to update.
  3. Make your changes, then click Save.

FAQ

What types of files are supported?

  • Images, vectors (optional), and video (optional) are supported.

What happens to the asset if I delete it from my Webdam portal (or visa versa)

  • If you delete an asset from your Webdam portal, it will remain in your Adobe Stock account, and if you delete an asset from your Adobe Stock account or the license expires, it will stay in your Webdam portal.

Once I connect my Adobe Stock account to Webdam, how long will it take to see my assets in Webdam?

  • The updates will run on a ~2-hour interval - so every ~2 hours, your Adobe Stock assets will be pushed to your Webdam portal.

Is a specific Adobe Stock account type required for the integration?

  • Yes, this integration requires an Adobe for Enterprise plan type.

What if we have multiple Adobe Stock accounts?

  • If you have multiple Adobe Stock users and want to synchronize assets with those individual users, you will need to set up additional connections for each of them. This will also require each of those users to have their own key pair and credentials generated in the Adobe Developer Console.

  • If you would like to synchronize assets by all Adobe Stock users, make sure the Sync Organization assets section is set to True.

Where are Adobe Stock assets uploaded to within Webdam?
