To allow users to access places.adobe.com, they need to be added to Places Core Service in the Admin Console as a user. To allow users to have access to Launch, configure mobile properties, and use Places with the Adobe Experience Platform SDK, they need to be added to Adobe Experience Platform Launch in the Admin Console and be given the following permissions for Launch:

  • All Property Rights:

    • Develop

    • Approve

    • Publish

    • Manage Extensions

    • Manage Environments

  • Manage Properties permission under Company Rights

If this is the first time you are adding a user, complete the following steps to add users to Launch and Places. If you have added users before, multiple profiles might be displayed, so ensure that you select the correct profile.

Important: Only org administrators can access the Admin Console and add the users.

1. Verify that Places and Launch are provisioned

To verify that Places and Launch are provisioned:

  1. Log in to your Experience Cloud organization.

  2. In the top-right side, click the Experience Cloud shell switcher.

    places_shell_switcher

  3. Under Platform, click Administration.

    If you do not see Administration in the list, you are not an admin, and you must contact your org admin to complete this procedure.

  4. In the Experience Cloud Administration page, on the Admin Console card, click Take me there.

  5. In the Admin Console, if you have access to several organizations, verify that the correct organization is selected in the top right side of the page. This is the organization to which you will add your users. If the correct org has not been selected, click on the org, and select the correct org from the drop-down list. Important: If you do not have access to an organization, it means that you do not have admin access to that organization.

  6. Verify that the cards for Adobe Experience Platform Launch and Places Core Services are displayed.

    places_provisioned

    If they are displayed, Places and Launch have been provisioned for your organization. If they are not displayed, they have not been provisioned for your organization.

Important: During the Beta period, after you complete the Beta survey, the request is made to the Provisioning team.

2. Set up the profile and add the permissions

To set up the profile and add the permissions:

  1. Set up a Launch profile, which allows the users who were added to the profile, use Launch and its mobile properties with the Adobe Experience Platform SDK.

    b. In the left pane, in the list of products, click Adobe Experience Platform Launch.

    • The Launch profile appears on the right.

    • Launch has a default profile called Launch - (org name).

    If you previously added users to Launch, you might see multiple profiles listed.

  2. Select the correct profile:

    a. Click on the name of the default profile.

    b. Click the Permissions tab.

    c. Click Edit next to Property Rights.

    d. In the left pane, click + Add all.

    This step moves all the available permissions to the included permissions list.

    e. Click Company Rights.

    f. In the left pane, click + Manage Properties.

    g. Click Save.
