PowerApps licensing

On March 21, 2018, we introduced PowerApps integration with Dynamics 365 for Customer Engagement. See the blogs PowerApps Spring Updateand What’s new in the Dynamics 365 admin center.

Dynamics 365 and PowerApps are now based on the same platform that powers Dynamics 365. PowerApps users appear as users in Dynamics 365 via Settings > Security > Users. What users can do and the security role assigned to them is scoped to PowerApps and Flow applications managed by environment administrators. See Configure environment security.

PowerApps users can be licensed in multiple ways. They can be assigned a license by a Global administrator of PowerApps, Flow or many of the Office 365 user licenses (almost all Office 365 user license types) that include PowerApps capabilities. PowerApps users can also be licensed via self-serve sign-up. See Manage licenses in my org.


You can use security groups to control which licensed users can be a member of a particular instance by assigning a security group to your Dynamics 365 (online) instances. See Control user access to instances: security groups and licenses.
