Stories in Ready

The Creative SDK User Auth UI component provides a solution for developers seeking to allow their users to login to the Adobe Creative Cloud.

This plugin makes it possible for you to use the Creative SDK User Auth UI component in your PhoneGap apps. Read on to learn how!



Required: You must first install the Client Auth plugin for this plugin to work.

Required: This guide will assume that you have installed all software and completed all of the steps in the Client Auth guide.


Adding the plugin

Use the command below to add the plugin to your app.

phonegap plugin add --save phonegap-plugin-csdk-user-auth

Downloading the Creative SDK


To get the iOS SDK, go to the Downloads page, click the download link for STATIC FRAMEWORKS (DEPRECATED), and extract it to the src/ios folder of this plugin. Extracting the ZIP will create an AdobeCreativeSDKFrameworks folder.

The ZIP files contain all the frameworks in the Creative SDK, but for this plugin we will only be using the AdobeCreativeSDKAssetModel.framework.


No action is required for Android. The Creative SDK for Android is delivered as a remote Maven repository, and the required framework will be downloaded automatically by the plugin.

Setup guide

  1. cd into your existing PhoneGap app (must already include Client Auth)
  2. Add this plugin (see "Adding the plugin" above)
  3. iOS only: download and add the Creative SDK to this plugin's src/ios directory (see "Downloading the Creative SDK" above)
  4. Build and run for your platform

Sample code


Add two buttons within the body. The PhoneGap "Hello World" example includes a div with an ID of app, so for this example, we are including it in there.

// ...

<div class="app">

	// ...

    <button id="login">Login</button>
    <button id="logout">Logout</button>

// ...


Note: Most of the code below comes from the PhoneGap "Hello World" example, and we are providing it here for context.

This plugin provides access to a global CSDKUserAuth object.

The CSDKUserAuth object exposes .login() and .logout() functions.

See comments #1-3 below for relevant code:

var app = {
    initialize: function() {
    bindEvents: function() {
        // ...

        /* 1) Add click handlers for your buttons */
        document.getElementById('login').addEventListener('click', this.login, false);
        document.getElementById('logout').addEventListener('click', this.logout, false);
    onDeviceReady: function() {
    receivedEvent: function(id) {
        // ...

    /* 2) Make a helper function to log in to Creative Cloud */
    login: function() {

    	/* 2.a) Prep work for calling `.login()` */
        function success(userObject) {
            console.log("Login Success!", userObject);

        function error(error) {
            console.log("Error!", error);

        /* 2.b) Launch User Auth UI */
        CSDKUserAuth.login(success, error);

    /* 3) Make a helper function to log out from Creative Cloud */
    logout: function() {

    	/* 3.a) Prep work for calling `.logout()` */
        function success() {
            console.log("Logout Success!");

        function error(error) {
            console.log("Error!", error);

        /* 3.b) Log out user */
        CSDKUserAuth.logout(success, error);
