For instructions on creating an installer package with Creative Cloud Packager, see the following documentation from Adobe:
Add the installer package to Jamf Admin so you can deploy it using a policy.
Note: If your principal distribution point is the cloud distribution point, you can also upload the package directly to Jamf Pro. For more information, see Managing Packages in the Jamf Pro Administrator's Guide.
Open Jamf Admin and authenticate to the Jamf Pro server.
Drag the package to the main repository in Jamf Admin.
The package is displayed in blue text until you add it to a category.
Double-click the package in the main repository.
Click the General tab and choose a category for the package.
Click the Options tab and choose a priority for the package.
The recommended priority for the installer package is “10“.
After adding the installer package to Jamf Admin, you can deploy it using a policy.
Note: On Jamf Pro 9.95 or earlier, if the principal distribution point in your environment is an SMB share, use the deployment instructions in the Deploying PKGs Created with AAMEE or Creative Cloud Packager Knowledge Base article. On Jamf Pro 9.96 or later, uploading the package to Jamf Admin or directly to Jamf Pro will automatically zip the files. The use of a script is not necessary for deployment.
