Published Captivate file and font domain information -- where is it stored?

My company is migrating to a new LMS, which means we're changing the domain where our content is stored. To use Adobe Fonts, you have to specify the domain. I'm sure you can see what I'm facing -- we potentially have to open thousands of pieces of content, just to modify the domain names. 

 

I thought I could write a script that would modify the published ZIP output (like maybe CPM.js) but I can't find where the domain information is stored in the published files.  

 

What I tried: 

  1. Created a Captivate file and set up a variable myVar = hello
  2. Added %%myVar%% to the slide.
  3. Changed the font for the variable text to an Adobe font (Sundowner)
  4. Published the file, and used my personal domain (*.sharonh.com) as the domain for the Adobe fonts. 
  5. After publish, I used a text utility to search the published files for sharonh.com as a fuzzy match, so it would find any instance of "sharonh"

 

I can't think of what else to try.  I'm starting to think maybe this information is stored in our Adobe profiles somewhere?

I also meant to add that I've written AHK macros to mass update Captivate content in the past, so I do have experience with this type of problem.

OK, the fonts must be connected to the user profile somehow -- this old Typekit page says if you downgrade your Creative Cloud plan, then your fonts could change.  I couldn't find anything Captivate-specific for Adobe Fonts, but did find similar wording for other Adobe products that use Adobe Fonts.

 

This raises a whole new level of worry for me.  We have enterprise accounts.  What happens to fonts if one of our instructional designers leaves the company and their license is reassigned?  Will the fonts in their content downgrade?  That means I need to start tracking who last published what, so we know what to republish if that individual quits/retires/is fired.  This is making my head spin.  Or maybe there is an enterprise profile out there somewhere?
