Power Platform licensing may still look like a beast sometimes, though it’s, probably, a tamed one now. Still, you would not want to tease a beast, and it’s a bit of the same with the licensing. There are a few simple mistakes to avoid, and there are probably more (but I’ll add them to this post if / when I run into them 🙄)
Here is my list.
Assuming we can use any available feature
Technically, that assumption is correct. Practically, it may be costly since some of the required licenses are not cheap. Examples:
Power pages will cost you, at the lower volumes, $75 per 500 unauthenticated users and $200 per 100 authenticated ones per month. So about $300 per month is your entry point, and it only grows from there. Don’t use it for the personal blogs.
Power virtual agents start at $256 per 2000 sessions. Unlike with the power pages, the same user may consume multiple sessions at any period of time, and they will all be counted. So, perhaps, it’s not 2000 users, it’s probably less. May still be manageable, but keep that in mind.
If you end up using restricted tables in your solution, you’ll have to go “level up” from your regular Power Apps licenses: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/power-apps/maker/data-platform/data-platform-restricted-entities
