Note: Any partner can create a listing, but for a listing to be public and searchable on the Adobe Exchange Marketplace you MUST be Silver or higher tier of partnership. If you choose to remain a Community Member, your listing will be a private, it will not be searchable or visible to the public, though you can get a shareable link.
To get your shareable link, login to the partner portal, click on App Manager, select your application, and select the "more" button to get your sharable link.
A few items of note:
- App Manager enables you to create an app listing, submit sandbox requests and publish your listing in Adobe Exchange.
- During the process if you need to stop and pick up later just hit the "Save" button.
- Green status shows completed sections, orange shows sections that need attention. You can only move on from one to the next when you complete all the required fields in that section. Sandbox and EULA pages do not have a status as they are not required.
- As you select your connections when creating the listing, the sandbox requests to our team are being triggered for available products. This article has more information on provisioning.
- The "Proceed to Approval" button will only be available once all required fields are completed.
- Submit your listing for approval once it is complete. The Adobe Exchange Team will review your application and provide feedback if updates are required, the review process usually takes about a week. If you mark the “publish immediately” checkbox when you submit your app, the listing will be published immediately upon approval. If you want to publish your application at a later time, leave the checkbox unmarked and when the app is approved, a blue “Publish” button will appear next to it on your app listings page.
- Be sure to keep your app listing updated since most recently updated app listings will show higher in the search results.
How to create your app listing
Login on the Technology Partner site, click on the App Manager link next to your name, and create your listing in App Manager. (If you aren't already registered, visit this page for registration information.)
How to update your app listing
To update your listing once it has been initially approved login to the Partner Portal, and click the App Manager button. Select your application and click edit. Once your changes have been made, you can resubmit for approval. Once re-submitted, the Adobe Exchange Team will approve/reject the changes, and will give you feedback about the changes if rejected.
Note on App Manager text boxes
App manager can have trouble with more exotic flavors of unicode so please use plain characters, digits, and spaces in all text fields in App Manager. App Manager will give you an error if you try to use the non-breaking space character in your description (nbsp or hex code "0xa0" or html "&nsbp;").
How to update your "My Company" information for your Publisher profile
Your listing in the Adobe Exchange Marketplace shows a Publisher Profile for your company. You can update the content of this Publisher Profile in the partner portal (not in the App Manager). Go the main partner portal site and use the menu at the top to navigate to Program > to Partnership > Account. Click on Company Details and then Edit. You can update your website URL and the "About your company" fields in the My Company section.
