Separate permissions can be applied to every collection. These permissions also apply to the assets contained in the collection.

So in the Sulu system (representing Sulu’s administration interface) the view permission is required to see the collection itself in the navigation and its assets in any available view in the system. The add permission is needed to upload new assets and add new subcollections to a collection. With the edit permission the user is allowed to edit the title and other attributes of the collections and its containing assets, and finally the delete permission is required to delete assets and entire collections.

The permissions for collections will also show the systems for each webspace if configured with the permission-check flag set to true (see Setup a Webspace for more information on how to do this). Then Sulu will only show the media on this website (no matter if it is displayed via a smart content or media selection) if the current visitor has the view permission for this media.
