Using the plugin
Adding Adobe XD artboards to Miro boards
You can import artboards to Miro using Adobe XD Share links. Copy the link in Adobe XD, open a Miro board, and find Adobe XD among the apps on your toolbar. Paste the link in the Adobe XD Share Link field and click View Artboards.
If the link is public, the artboards will appear right away. Choose an artboard or check the Select all box and push the Insert artboard button. The artboard will appear on the board.

Pasting a private Adobe XD Share link in the Adobe XD app
Click Connect Creative Cloud, sign in to your Adobe account, and allow Miro access to your Adobe profile.
Allowing Miro to access your Adobe profile data
Once you connect your Miro and Adobe profiles, you will be able to select and add artboards to your Miro board.
If you need to connect another Adobe XD account, click Sign out in the bottom right corner.
After changing your design in Adobe XD and updating the link, you may either add the new updated link to your Miro board or refresh the existing artboard on the board.
To refresh the artboard, simply click the Xd icon on the artboard context menu.
⚠️ Note that the update button is inactive due to some technical limitations
Refreshing an Adobe XD artboard
✏️ To update several artboards at once, select them while holding down Shift and click Xd on the menu.
You can only refresh private artboards shared with you if your Adobe XD account is connected to Miro. Otherwise, you will get a warning message:

- How can I revoke the Adobe token that is created for private XD links?
- Adobe users can revoke the connected application in Adobe on this page. Find the plugin and click Revoke.

Possible issues with Adobe XD and how to resolve them
1. You get the Verify that this XD Share Link still exists and you have the right permissions in XD error when pasting the Adobe XD URL into Miro.
- You are using the non-XD-share link (for example, an Adobe Library link). For reference an Adobe XD share link looks like this https://xd.adobe.com/view/d17650e4-8b11-488e-ac60-e6e2866666cd-8425/.
- We also throw this error if the Adobe XD share has been removed in XD or if a user that is adding it in Miro does not have the right permission to access the share link.
2. Verify that you have the right permissions in XD.
- This error is shown in the following cases: 1) the Adobe XD share link was removed, 2) you connected an Adobe account which is different from the one that has access to the link, 3) the permission changed and a user who is trying to refresh/add the link does not have access to it. To troubleshoot the issue, please sign out of your Adobe ID in Miro and connect your Creative Cloud again.
