The Missing Guide to Your Adobe Managed Services Servers

Published on by Dan KlcoPicture of Me Dan Klco

Working with Adobe Managed Services (AMS) I've wished I had a guide to the common activities I need to log into a server to perform. Here is a quick starter to help you find your way around the servers provisioned by Adobe Managed Services. Since I can't guarantee AMS environments are consistent (and checking with other teams I've confirmed they're not) you may find these commands or paths don't exactly match yours, but they should be a good start. SSH Access Before you can SSH into the AMS hosts, you will need to reach out to the CSE in order to create a user name and add your public key to the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file on the host. I'd note that some AMS are still issued password based users (in 2020!!) so ssh-copy-id may come in handy. By default, the CSE will create a single username for all users to access. You can request they create named users as well, however you will need to be vigilant in adding / removing users as these users are not managed in a centralized repository.
