What permissions are needed to allow users to download assets from AEM DAM?

Resolution

The ability to download assets is associated with the jcr:read permission.

If you can read an asset, you can download the asset.

If you want to disable the download button even though there is permission to read the assets, you will need to overlay this functionality.
