Hi @ Adobe Stock!
I licensed this file https://stock.adobe.com/de/images/vector-golden-light-with-glare-sun-sun-rays-dawn-glare-from-the-su.... The preview and description promised, I get sun and sunbeam isolated on transparent background. The file in fact has a checkerboard pattern on top of radiant elements with black backgrounds in illustrator. How can I get the sun without checkerboard or those black ellipsoids? I need to place the sunbeam in InDesign without any background/elements…

All assets of this kind need some kind of background. They don't work with completely transparent backgrounds. I have, however, no idea, if you can use an Indesign background. I suppose, but never tried, that it works. No background won't be possible because of the way the different elements interact.
You need to work around this limitation, as there is no other solution.
Correct answer? I didn't actually read any answer. I see by the series of photo images that it seems someone fixed the issue, but it doesn't state anywhere how they did it???
Where is the answer?
What were the actual steps taken to fix the problem?
I'm having a simular issue after opening a PDF in Photoshop Elements. All the Text and Images have been placed on a Grey Checkerboard background and I don't know what that means or how to fix it?
You open the assets in the latest version of Illustrator, go to the layers palette. Either, you have a layer with the checkerboard background and you switch that off, or you need to expand the layer by clicking the > near the layer's name. You'll find the background object as the last element in that list. Eventually, you need to expand more. But you will find the background checkerboard always as the last element in the list.

BTW: the answer is correct! The question was not "How to remove" as OP new that. You really need first to understand how these assets work. And they work only against a background.
