Are you signed up to receive notices regarding DPS system status? Have you ever visited the DPS System Status page? If not, and you are creating Adobe Digital Publishing Suite apps, you are missing an essential tool that provides important information. The DPS System Status page and any notices sent to you would include the following:

  • Dates and times the DPS server is scheduled for maintenance.
  • Reports and updates regarding ongoing issues with DPS services such as App Builder, Account Management, Analytics, and Content Viewer.
  • Posts about new releases of DPS and links to documentation to explain changes or enhancements in the app creation process.


We recommend that you bookmark the DPS System Status page and sign up to receive email notifications. You can go to the status page if you are experiencing any difficulties during the production and publishing process to see whether there are any issues being worked on. Email notifications, similar to the ones in the image below, will let you know if there are problems that could affect your work and when they have been resolved.


If you wish to receive email notifications when the Adobe DPS team updates the DPS System Status page, go to the page and specify your contact information in the “Receive Updates” section.
