At work, adobe creative cloud installed on my computer. I also had to be part of Adobe group in Active Directory. I myself can add my name to Adobe Group in Active Directory after our department proofed, we paid for 1 year subscription. They said this is not device license but the software is license on a name user basis.
What would happen after 1 year? How the software license will get expired? If I have the software installed already and if I am still member of Adobe group in Active Directory. How the software will stop working after 1 year? I do not see that possible? What is the point of adding name to Adobe group in Active Directory?
I just want to understand the process. I am not trying to do anything not legal. I need to do a presentation so I want to understand the process clearly. IT people do not seem to understand the process. The person who knows that is not around. Thank you very much.

You'll have to ask Microsoft how Active Directory works. We can't answer that.
I'm moving your question from Creative Cloud Services (which is mainly for individual users) to Enterprise & Teams. Maybe the experts there can shed more light on this.
I think you will need to look here: https://helpx.adobe.com/enterprise/using/licensing.html
Licenses expire when cancelled during the renewal process. Your organization has a number of licenses from 0 to n, that it can attribute to a number of users. If it allocates more licences than initially purchased, it will need to purchase more. If it will allocate less, it will waste resources and need to cancel those at time.
Your IT needs to make the connection between the Adobe CC license and your user in the active directory. How this works out is best explained by your it. If they don't know what they are doing then you asked the wrong persons.
My Teams license is managed via an admin console (from Adobe, not related to active directory) and the ones I invite to the CC will need to create an Adobe id. Their license will be tyed to that id as long as I will keep the license assigned to that id.
