The Adobe Authenticator module allows you to connect to any Adobe API, using a single connection. This allows you to more easily connect to Adobe products that do not yet have a dedicated Fusion connector.

The advantage over the HTTP modules is that you can create a connection, as in a dedicated app.

To see a list of available Adobe APIs, see Adobe APIs. You may be able to use only the APIs to which you are assigned.

Prerequisites

  • You must have access to the Adobe product that you want the module to connect to.

  • You must have access to the Adobe Developer Console.

  • You must have a project on the Adobe Developer Console that includes the API that you want the module to connect to. You can:

    • Create a new project with the API.

      Or

    • Add the API to an existing project.

    For information on creating or adding an API to a project on the Adobe Developer Console, see Create a project in the Adobe documentation.

Create a connection

An Adobe Authenticator connection connects to a single project on the Adobe Developer Console. To use the same connection for more than one Adobe API, add the APIs to the same project, and create a connection to that project.

You can create separate connections to separate projects, but you cannot use a connection to access an API that is not on the project specified in that connection.

IMPORTANT

With the Adobe Authenticator connector, you have the choice between making an OAuth Server-to-server connection, or a Service Account (JWT) connection. Adobe has deprecated JWT credentials, which will stop working after January 1, 2025. Therefore, we highly recommend creating OAuth connections.

For more information on these types of connections, see Server to Server authentication in the Adobe documentation

To create a connection:

  1. In any Adobe Authenticator module, click Add next to the Connection field.

  2. Fill in the following fields:

    Connection type

    Select whether you want to create an OAuth Server-to-Server connection, or a service account (JWT) connection.

    Connection name

    Enter a name for this connection.

    Client ID Enter your Adobe Client ID. This can be found in the Credentials details section of the Adobe Developer Console.
    Client Secret Enter your Adobe Client Secret. This can be found in the Credentials details section of the Adobe Developer Console.
    Scopes If you have selected an OAuth connection, enter the scopes needed for this connection.
    Technical account ID Enter your Adobe Technical account ID. This can be found in the Credentials details section of the Adobe Developer Console.
    Organization ID If you have selected a JWT connection, enter your Adobe Organization ID. This can be found in the Credentials details section of the Adobe Developer Console.
    Meta Scopes If you have selected a JWT connection, enter the meta scopes needed for this connection.
    Private key

    If you have selected a JWT connection, enter the private key that was generated when your credentials were created in the Adobe Developer Console.

    To extract your private key or certificate:

    1. Click Extract.

    2. Select the type of file you are extracting.

    3. Select the file that contains the private key or certificate.

    4. Enter the password for the file.

    5. Click Save to extract the file and return to the connection setup.

    Environment Select whether you are connecting to a production or non-production environment.
    Type Select whether you are connecting to a service account or a personal account.
  3. Click Continue to save the connection and return to the module.
