Authentication and Authorization Workflows for Your Applications

Whether you want to customize and extend on the Adobe products your team is using or you want to build an application that helps Adobe users do more, this is the place to learn how to integrate with Adobe API Services and request authorization for Adobe users. We provide documentation for our authentication mechanisms, authorization workflows, and OAuth scopes, as well as libraries and tooling to help you get started.

Authentication Overview

Learn about the types of integration and authentication flows supported by Adobe. Figure out which one suits your needs and dive deep into details.

JWT Authentication

API services tied to entitled Adobe products (e.g. Campaign, Target, etc.) require a JSON Web Token (JWT) in order to retrieve access tokens for usage against authenticated endpoints. This document serves as a quickstart guide for first-time users.

OAuth Authentication

Adobe services like Creative SDK, Photoshop, Adobe Analytics, etc. use the OAuth 2.0 protocol for authentication and authorization. Using Adobe OAuth 2.0, you can generate an access token which is used to make API calls from your web server or browser-based apps.
