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.

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

Adobe Stock for Enterprise is required for this connection. Only an enterprise account can add the server-to-server authentication required to sync assets.

Before configuring the integration in Webdam, you will need to create an app in the Adobe Developer console and add the server-to-server authentication and Adobe Stock API to it. Once created, copy the client ID and client secret, which will be needed while creating the integration in Webdam. More information may be found here.

  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 Oauth Server-to-Server.
    • Do not select Oauth or Service Account (JWT).
  5. Choose the product profile that includes your Adobe Stock for Enterprise license.
  6. Your new Sever-to-Server authentication will be created. Copy the Client ID and Client secret.

How to set up the integration

Admins will be able to set up and configure the integration.

  1. Navigate to > System Preferences > 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 the following:
    • Your authentication name: Enter a name for the authentication.
    • Client ID and Client Secret: This is the Client ID & Secret from Webdam. If you aren’t sure what yours is, please reach out to the support team.
  5. Click Create, then Next.
  6. Select New authentication.
  7. Enter the Client ID and Client Secret you created in the Adobe developer console.
  8. Click Create, then Next.
  9. Upload folder: Select the top-level Webdam folder where you would like to have the synced assets uploaded.
  10. [optional] Sync video and Sync Vectors: If you want Adobe Stock videos and vectors to be uploaded to your Webdam account, check the box to Sync video and/or Sync vectors.
  11. Sync organization assets: If your profile has permission to view organization assets, you can import all assets across your entire organization.
    • Select True to sync all assets licensed in the Adobe Enterprise account.
    • Select False to sync assets licensed by your user profile.
  12. Click Next.
  13. 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 keywords will map to Webdam. Learn more here.
  14. Click Next.
  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.


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.

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. You can move the folder, but it should not be deleted. If you delete the folder, the upload will fail until you add a new one in the configuration wizard.

If you delete an Adobe Stock asset from Webdam, 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 > System Preferences > 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.

Metadata Information

The keywords will automatically update with the following details. You can map additional Adobe Stock metadata to Webdam metadata fields during the integration configuration.

  • Keywords: Adobe Stock, Adobe Stock ID, and all Adobe Stock keywords
