PowerApps Licensing Guide July 2021
Power Apps is a powerful tool, and making it useful to your organization can give you a better opportunity to grow. So, if you are planning to have it, here is a guide for understanding power platform licensing.
How are Microsoft Power Apps and Power Automate licensed?
Power Apps plans:
- Individual users can operate applications (2 apps and a single portal) for a specific business scenario using Power Apps’ full capabilities for $10 per user/app/month. This plan makes it simple for customers to get started with the platform before adopting it on a larger scale.
- Its per-user subscription for $40/user/month allows a user to execute unlimited applications (within service constraints) based on the full Power Apps capabilities.
Power Automate Plans:
- Power Automate per user subscription for $15/user/month allows users to conduct limitless flows (within service constraints) with the complete Power Automate features based on their specific needs.
- Without having to license each end-user, Power Automate per-flow plan allows enterprises to design flows with reserved capacity that serve teams, departments, or the entire organization. This package costs $500 per month for five flows.
How do I use Power Apps per-app plans?
The Power Apps per-app plan enables businesses to begin using the platform at a cheaper cost.
Before implementing the platform more generally, customers on the per-app plan typically start with 1-2 leading use case scenarios. The Power Apps per-app plan is another appealing licensing option for end-users who only use a few apps. Individual users can utilize the Power Apps per app subscription to run two bespoke applications (canvas or model or both) and access one custom portal using the full Power Apps features.
What license do I need to use power apps?
With a Power Apps per-app/per-user license, internal users can now access portals. It’s the same for Dynamics licenses as it is for bespoke Power Apps use rights.
Do you need a license to use PowerApps?
Yes, it is necessary for every user. Just take an example that you try to log in. It will show you the below message.
However, with the trial version, you may not have access to the data completely. So, you will need a license for it. So, check how the licensing of power apps work.
How does power app licensing work?
Every tenant gets the default capacity with a Power Apps License. In addition, the tenant receives additional capacity (pooled) for each license.
How do I assign a PowerApps license?
Power Apps per App licenses are referred to as “capacity add-ons” that must be assigned to “environments”—all of which can be perplexing to the uninformed. This must be done in the Power Platform admin area, which is a separate admin center.
So, in the platform admin center:
- Set up the environment
- Allocate the license to the capacity
- Go to the add-ons section and click manage and allocate the add-ons to the environment.
You are done assigning the power Apps license.
Microsoft’s latest licensing update for Power Apps Portals: June 2021
According to Hayduk, the new pricing of $.32 per login for 25,000 logins and $.12 per login for 100,000 logins indicates a lot more realistic final cost. It will move the official pricing for high-volume portals clients into the same price range that would have been negotiated with Microsoft when the list price was an outrageous figure.
“This is fantastic. It prevents awkward talks where you have to say things like, ‘Yeah, this is what the price says, but at your volume, we can get you a better bargain,’ and so on, “Hayduk said.
