Power Apps has added a new feature that allows users to directly request a license from their admin within the product. Users can now see the option to ‘Request a license’ if they are trying to run an app that requires a license, in addition to the ‘Buy a license’ or ‘Start a trial’ option (if eligible). Upon submitting a request, a confirmation message will appear at the top of the page indicating that the request has been successfully sent to their admin.
During an active trial, users can also request a license using the banner at the top of the page, which will display the number of days remaining in the trial.
Admins will be notified of all incoming licensing requests on the Microsoft 365 Home page and can approve or reject multiple requests at once and include a message for their users. Admins can also continue using their organization’s custom license request process and configure the appropriate settings in the Microsoft 365 Admin center.
For more information on how to manage all license requests and settings, users can refer to the documentation provided by Power Apps. The team is eager to receive feedback on this new feature.
Power Apps Premium is a subscription offering for enterprise organizations to use Power Apps to build and deploy powerful business applications. This license allows organizations to take advantage of advanced features such as custom connectors, custom APIs, and more. In order to use Power Apps Premium, an organization must request a license from their organization's administrators. With a Power Apps Premium license, organizations can create more advanced applications that integrate with their existing systems, enabling them to create better, more powerful solutions.
The first step is to log in to the Microsoft 365 admin center. Then, click Users > Active users. Next, find the user you want to assign a license to and click Edit next to their name. Under Product Licenses, select Power Apps and then choose the type of license you want to assign from the drop-down menu.
Power Apps and Power Automate have native access to two types of connectors: standard and premium. Apps or flows that only use standard connectors may be authored or executed by any user, apps or flows that use premium connectors may only be authored or executed by those with a premium license.
