PowerApps License

Hi All,

          Currently there are couple of apps I have developed using PowerApps. Today I got a mail from my company administrator saying assigned Microsoft PowerApps Plan 2 Trial license will be ended in two days. Our company has  PowerApps for Office 365 license. All my apps are Canvas Apps. I have installed Gateway on server to have it running always. I am using sql server connector.

Can someone please help me to access the impact if  Microsoft PowerApps Plan 2 Trial license is ended.

 Is there anyway I can see the apps under Microsoft PowerApps Plan 2 Trial license ?

 

Regards,

Manoj

Re: PowerApps License

Hi Manoj

I understand that this is confusing.

Yes, the SQL Server is a standard, free connector. However, the use of the on-premises gateway requires a P1 or P2 license. Therefore by extension of this rule, if you want to connect to an on-premise SQL Server through a gateway, you'll need a P1 or P2 license. 

If for example you were to connect to a SQL Server Azure database instead, this would not require a P1 or P2 license because this would not require the on-premises gateway.

Hope that makes a bit more sense for you!

Re: PowerApps License

Hi Manoj,

I don't think there's anywhere where you can find a list of apps that depend on a Plan 2 license.

As you're aware, any app that uses an on-premise SQL Server will stop working when the trial expires. Therefore, one way to gauge the impact would be to go through your list of connections under Data > Connections, and to click on the 'Apps using this connection link'.

Alternatively, you could also do a similar thing using the PowerShell commands.

Re: PowerApps License

Hi @timl ,

                Thank you very much for the help. Can you please elaborate why Microsoft sql server connection will stop working when trial expires. As what I saw from PowerApps connectors doc.. Sql server connecter is a standard connector and it is free . 

 

Am I going in wrong way ?

 

Below are the connections that I am using . My all apps have sql server connector. I am happy to delink all connections except sql server connection.

 

Regards,

Manoj

Customers with active users of these features will get an automatic extension until January 31, 2020 or the expiration of their existing Office 365 subscription term (whichever is longer).

Re: PowerApps License

Running in the same issue. I understand my gateway is not working anymore when my trial is expired. But how do i Purchase a P1 (or P2) license? And do I need only 1 license (just for me as the developer) or licenses for all users who are using my app?

 

Still confused about what to do, can anyone help?

Re: PowerApps License

Hi @Kea 

The licensing structure has changed. The P1/P2 licenses no longer exist.

We now need to license apps on a 'per app' or 'per user' basis. All users require a license, not just the developer.
