Sharing Prototype in a closed network
Currently your sharing prototypes via the internet. What happens to people that work in a location without access to the internet but have an internal network (example: Military personnel). Is there a way or a possibility to share the prototype with all the interaction as a pdf or other type of file extension?
This functionality is now available for a limited set of customers using Creative Cloud for Enterprise. While offline publication is available, current and future sharing and collaboration features will be restricted. The full product functionality and experience in XD is available only when XD uses Creative Cloud services. If you have additional questions, please reach out to your Adobe account team for more information!
This is definitely not feature completed. It's not usable yet. Exporting locally does nothing. How do you define complete if it doesn't work? I need a way to show the flow of screens without publishing it to the web.

Our company WILL NOT allow publishing outside our network due to company policy in order to protect their Intellectual Property. Hosting published prototypes/specifications internally is preferred i.e. HTML5 output etc.
In my understandung this feature is not completed. So currently te usage from XD is very limited inside development departments of companies.
Would it be possible to offer a special XD offline viewer for the files?
This could then be used to archive XD files in the internal repository and, if necessary, to open them independently of an XD installation using the Viewer.

At the same way, is it possible to share also the specs to the dev team, besides the interactive prototype?
Would Adobe CC Enterprise account, allow me to publish in a closed network? I want to publish Adobe XD content within the company network not on Adobe XD cloud?
As we cannot share anything on Adobe xd cloud network as security is very important to us.
Does this mean if we get an Adobe XD Enterprise version we are able to share internally within our company ? What need to be done to publish Adobe Xd within the company network ?
Can you get back to us
We would like to use Adobe XD, Enterprise , and share it in a closed network within the company only? As we cannot share anything on adobe xd cloud network as security is very important to us.
Does this mean if we get an Adobe XD Enterprise version we are able to share internally within our company only ? that if I share a prototype, it is stored in a local cloud / server that is on-premise?

My company bought Creative Cloud for Entreprise.
What do we need to do to be part of this selection please?
Thank you for your reply.

I completely agree... it's an amazing tool with a poor execution. Or, that's to true, from a shareholder pov it's a great solution because you force users to buy into the cloud concept, but what customers want is localized hosting... This is like buying a car, but in order to use it, you have to buy into a road fee service after you bought the car.
"When business model trumphs customer needs."
If XD can generate web pages hosted at adobe.com, then it can generate pages locally that the user can share at their discretion. I can't think of any (user-accommodating) reason why this wasn't an option from the get-go.
If you want to completely corner the market, it is time to make this possible.
You can easily start your own webserver locally using NPM to avoid the blank page.
1. Download and install NPM (https://www.npmjs.com/get-npm)
2. Navigate to your export folder and run the following command to install a lightweight server
npm install -g http-server
3. run the server
http-server -p 80
4. open a browser and type "localhost"
I don't understand how this is Feature-Completed if it's only available for a limited set of users. Many of us work in a world where cloud hosting product requirements is simply not workable.
We need a way to export a static version that can be controlled/versioned according to our own current best practices and restrictions.
I have the "Export Prototype" option as well, but like others here I'm not sure how to get it to work. Whenever I open up index.html I get a blank page.
It'd be great if we could have some documentation on how to get this working...
Still waiting on this feature

Come on Adobe. We really need an offline mode for XD. Online only does not work for many of us and you are forcing us to switch to other design tools. I work for a large film company and we need to keep the work we are doing secret. Posting our work on the cloud is not an option.

The ability to distribute and share prototypes when offline is an important feature. We're working with a client who needs an interactive prototype that can be available when there is no internet access, removing XD as an option (though that would be our initial go-to for this work). Please consider a way for prototypes to be shared as self-contained items or interactive PDFs.
Stanton Ware commented
It would be very useful to be able to share a prototype as a self contained file via email or cloud drive that would open in a native web app viewer without the need to login to adobe CC.
Can you please let us know how to make that work? Who are the "limited set of customers using Creative Cloud for Enterprise"? How do we become one of them?
The cloud is not the answer. Stop assuming this. I work with proprietary information and cannot work with Cloud services. I wish companies would stop saying "We're on the cloud now! isn't that great! you NEED something else to make our software work, it doesn't work on it's own anymore! Success!"
