Assets are any permission-based object where activity can be tracked and audited. Folders, templates, campaigns, and shared content are considered Assets. Each one of those items can have different permissions applied to them, which allows administrators to control which users or groups of users should have different levels of access.
Roles are applied at the User level, and define the general level of access for an individual User in Accelerator. A User's Roles will affect the visibility of icons in the top navigation bar while logged into Accelerator as that User.
Permissions are applied at the Group level, and can vary from Asset to Asset within Accelerator.
