A privilege is a permission to perform an action on a specific entity type in Microsoft Dynamics 365. The platform checks for the privilege and fails if the user does not hold the privilege. A privilege has an associated access level that determines the depth within the organization to which the privilege applies.

A role, or security role, is a grouping of security privileges. Users are assigned roles that authorize their access to Dynamics 365. A user must be assigned to at least one role. It isn’t sufficient to be a member of a team that has an assigned role.

For more information about access levels and roles, see How role-based security can be used to control access to entities in Microsoft Dynamics 365.

The following illustration shows the entity relationships for this area. More information: Key to entity diagrams
