PowerApps per App license: Sharing app with users vs groups

Hi, 

 

Just a quick question about licensing to check if I can have any issue. I have an scenario where an app is shared to a AD Group. Now I want to assign a license per app to all users in that group. So following the steps on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/about-powerapps-perapp, this would be:

  1. Purchase Power Apps per app plans
  2. Allocate per app plans to environments
  3. Set up apps to use per app plans
  4. Share the app

But I am concerned about the step 4: Would it be enough to share the app with the group or does it need to be to individual users?

 

In other word, Let's say There is a "MyUsers" group with 40 users and I purchase 40 license per app. If I share the app with "MyUsers" group, would the license be applied to the 40 users?

 

I assume so, but I'm not reading in the link above anything about groups so I would like to double check first.

 

Many thanks

The per app license is applied to an individual user when they use the app that has been shared with them.  So yes, you should be able to share the app with a group as long as you have enough per app licenses to cover all the individual users. Its the act of using the app that attaches the license to the user, not the act of sharing alone.
