A System administrator applies permissions to assets individually thereby controlling which User account types, User groups, and Roles have access to view and edit the asset.

For example, an administrator can grant public read permission to an asset so that everyone can view the content of that asset within the front end of the site.

The system administrators and the root user have access to all assets within the system, regardless of the permissions.

The Asset permissions screen lets you grant or deny read, write, or admin permission to either the public, a user, a user group, or a role. You can also cascade permissions from a parent asset to its child assets from this screen.
