Pre-integrated with Adobe I/O events and API Gateway, you will have easy, secure and fast access to Adobe APIs.


Based on OpenWhisk and node.js, the Adobe I/O Runtime runs any JavaScript code in Adobe's Experience Platform


Deploy actions using the Command line interface or REST APIs, enabling rapid development and continuous integration and deployment

Server Not Required

Normal The Adobe I/O Runtime is a serverless platform that allows you to quickly deploy custom code to respond to events and execute functions right in the cloud, all with no server set-up required.

Developers can run code on top of our Cloud solutions, bringing Adobe services together with APIs. The functions run in close proximity to the content and data already stored with Adobe, making it quick and easy to create a custom solution.

We’ve built Adobe I/O Runtime on top of Apache OpenWhisk, an open source project incubating at the Apache Software Foundation. We're active contributors to OpenWhisk.

Extend Adobe Solutions

Introducing App Builder: Building on top of existing Adobe technologies, including I/O Runtime and I/O Events, Project Firefly is a complete framework to build custom web apps that extend the functionality of Adobe Experience Platform and Adobe Experience Cloud solutions.

Embedded Adobe API

Gain direct use of Adobe's APIs and services. Easily access your content and data stored in Adobe's Cloud Platform, and run code in response to Adobe I/O Events.

Automatic Scaling

Write your code, we manage the rest. The Adobe I/O Runtime automatically scales based on requests keeping performance high and costs low.

Code in Javascript, run in node.js

IUse what you know and love: Javascript and node.js. Use npm and test locally. There's no need to learn a whole new framework

Continuous Integration and Deployment

Use Git for an integrated deployment workflow so you don't have to push code manually. Increase software quality and velocity of delivery
