Creating API credentials in Adobe Stock

This topic explains how to create API credentials in Adobe Stock. You add those credentials to Brightspot, after which editors can browse for images in your Adobe Stock account.

The following procedure describes an activity in a third-party application. While Brightspot periodically validates this procedure, individual steps may change in the interim without our knowledge. If you notice an inaccuracy, please leave feedback using the widget at the bottom of this topic.

The configuration in this topic is often done in parallel with the associated configuration in Brightspot. Consider performing this procedure along with the one described in Configuring the Adobe Stock integration.

  3. Click Create new project, or click an existing project.
  4. Click Add to project > Add API.
  5. In the list of available products, click Adobe Stock.
  6. Click Next.
