Licensing confusion

Me:  License M365 E3, Office ProPlus, PowerApps P2
Me:  Build model-driven app, dipping into Dynamics config daily for settings
Me:  Read MSFT docs for guidance on how to implement - all Dynamics 365 CE content
Me:  Setup server-side integration between Dynamics instance and SharePoint to store documents.  SharePoint site URL verified and accepted, however, unable to configure Document Management settings in Dynamics
Me:  6 MSFT Support calls, "that's a Dynamics problem talk to them", "that's an Office problem, talk to them", "that's a Billing and Licensing problem", "that's a PowerApps problem" ...

 

MSFT:  You don't have a Dynmamics license

 

Me:  No, but there's a checkbox on each of my entities that says "Enable SharePoint document management" and look: PowerApps makers can create mashup apps with sharepoint document libraries and Licensing overview ... wait... what does that mean?

I still can't find any material that says to allow PowerApps entities to use SharePoint to store documents you need a Dynamics license.

Re: Licensing confusion

Hi Yumia,

Thank you for your reply.  Would you mind taking a moment to validate the steps in that documentation?

I am guessing you have licenses for all of the tools, but for this validation you may need to create a new account with trials with only the following:  O365, PowerApps

(do not add a D365 license trial)

Create a new model-driven app and use the documentation you referenced to setup doc storage in sharepoint.

I am very hopeful you get a different result than me!
