Power Apps License for Developers

Hi,

 

We are planning to purchase per-user license for a power app to be built on CDS. We have a couple of developers and trying to engage them for a project. Is there separate licensing for a development environment or do we use the same user-based license to develop the app?

 

Thank you.

Re: Power Apps License for Developers

Hi @sonam-tobgay ,

Powerapps only supports these licenses:

office365

dynamics365

community plan

powerapps standalone plan( per user plan, per app plan)

 

Since you need to use CDS, so you need to choose from these three plans:

dynamics365

per user plan

per app plan

 

Based on your description, it seems like you are interested in powerapps standalone app.

Here are the differences between these two plans, you could choose based on your demands:

Per app plan
$10 user/app/month
Per user plan
$40 user/month
Run custom apps
Build and run custom apps 2 apps and 1 portal Unlimited3
What’s included
Connect to your data Use pre-built and custom connectors
Use on-premises connectors and gateway
Store and manage data Create and access custom entities
Use Common Data Service 50 MB database capacity4 250 MB database capacity4
400 MB file capacity4 2 GB file capacity4
Execute workflows Power Automate use rights (including premium connectors)5
Asynchronous and custom real-time workflows

 

 

Here's a doc about this in details for your reference:

You can use the same User based license to develop the app.  There is not any special license for developers 🙂

Re: Power Apps License for Developers

@sonam-tobgay 
As I said above, you don't need any special developer license for PowerApps.  The PowerApp author just needs a standard PowerApps license just like any other author.  Don't get confused by all the details added in @v-yutliu-msft 's response.

 

The simple answer is: "just buy your developers the same license as users".
