Adobe’s identity management system helps admins create and manage user access to applications and services. Adobe offers three varying types of identities or accounts to authenticate and authorize users. They use an email address as the user name. These identity types are:

  • Federated ID: Created, owned, and managed by an organization and linked to the enterprise directory via federation. The organization manages credentials and processes Single Sign-On via a SAML2 Identity Provider (IdP).
  • Enterprise ID: Created, owned, and managed by an organization. Adobe hosts the Enterprise ID and performs authentication, but the organization maintains the Enterprise ID.
  • Adobe ID: Created, owned, and managed by the end user. Adobe performs the authentication, and the end user manages the identity.

For more information, see Manage identity types in Adobe enterprise offerings

Hi Kelly,

 

The only option to do that is to delete that user's federated ID and add that user again using their Adobe ID. 

 

Hope this answers your query.

Hi,

 

How to change Adobe ID to Federated ID. As per the article, I couldn't find the "Edit Identity Type by CSV" option. Please suggest.

 

Thanks,
