We have been hearing a lot of queries around how the administrators can allow or disallow end-users to update and install applications.

As a system or deployment administrator, you can enable/disable the apps panel in the Creative Cloud Desktop app that is deployed to your end user.

Here is how:

  1. Sign in to the Admin Console and navigate to Packages > Packages.
  2. While creating a Managed Package, on the Options screen, enable or disable the option to show the apps panel. Enabling or disabling the apps panel automatically enables or disables the updates on the client machines respectively.
  3. To enable the end-users, who do not have Administrative privileges, to install and manage their applications and updates, enable the option to allow non-admin to update and install apps.

You can also use the ServiceConfig.xml to Customize the Creative Cloud Desktop app. The presence of the ServiceConfig.xml file does not disable auto-updates. To know how to use the ServiceConfig.xml and for more information, see this article.
