I have the same question. Can ownership of a library be transfer to another users? We're moving our current CC account to a different one. This will probably delete the library on the old account unless we can find a way to move it over.

Thanks

From the Assets site at https://assets.adobe.com you can use Send Link and Save To Creative Cloud to copy an entire Library over to a different account.

If you Collaborate and the owner delete the Library then it will gone. If you make a copy of the Library using the combination of Send Link and Save To Creative Cloud then you have your own independent copy.

So you could use this to move the Library over to the new owner and then have the new owner do a Collaborate.

I agree. I need to become owner of some folders of a colleague that's leaving the company. The folder is shared among 29(!) users.

Is there a way to transfer his ownership to me?

I think the big question is; How does copying a library affect linked assets?  If you have hundreds of assets in library and they are linked in many documents...  Then you share, copy and then disconnect the original library.  Is there an easy way to re-link all of the assets to the new library?

.ian.smith​ thank you. that is the big question.

I found this: Migrate assets using Adobe Creative Cloud, but still not quite the answer to re-linking a library in one go.

Ken,

What happens to all the linked files? Would you have to relink them?

Hi Justin,

This summer we will be releasing a feature that will allow you to export an existing Library and import it under your user ID or any other user ID. This will allow you to export Libraries that you don't own and import them under your user ID, By using Import/Export of Libraries all element links will be preserved.

In the future we hope to introduce the concept of Owners, but in the meantime this new feature should solve the need of changing Library ownership.

Best,

Fernando

That doesn't really solve the fundamental need though.

You can quickly add levels of editing, so from a user perspective, it seems like it should be easy to co-own and/or change ownership.

This becomes particularly aggravating when it's a larger team and adding all of them back into a library they were already a part of.

I agree.

This seems like its making a simple concept into something complex and not very functional for the end-user.

That's what we get when they people coding it probably don't really use the software in the design field. Designers and Coders work and think differently, so who are they making this for? Not the designers.

Is there a date on when this expected functionality is going to be released.  We have many students that are going to have to migrate their CC assets and libraries to a new ID and I need to provide instructions or a link in our support portal.

It's taking a bit longer than what we expected because we had an issue with our latest release, but we have been working on fixing it. Hopefully you will see this new feature in the context menu of the Libraries panel early next week.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Hello, it turns out that we have the same problem in our company. We would like to change the owner of a library in order not to lose the original links. This ticket is more than 2 years old. I guess the functionality is now developed but I still can't find the way to change the owner of a library. Can you help us? The situation is quite critical I must admit.
Thanks to you

To Everyone,

The real issue here is what happens to the many many links that exists in many documents when you share and copy a CCLibrary owned by USER1 to USER2's account in order to transfer ownership. Even if USER2 copies over the latest and greatest version of USER1's CCLibrary, all of the links in the documents will go missing and have to be relinked if USER1's account is terminated.

In my case, this would be at least 2000 links that will go missing in this transfer of ownership because the assets in my files link to USER1's CCLibrary not USER2's.
