Service Accounts and Licensing

Hi all,

 

I would like to get clarity on service accounts and licensing in Power Apps. 

- In Power Apps, using Per User Plan for service account. Does end users also need to have premium account? (My scenario - I created canvas apps which pulls the on-prem sql data into the form. When the user submits the form the data goes into the SharePoint list)

I'm thinking to use a service account having the premium connector to pull/push the on-prem sql data. Can the end user use the service account to submit the data ? or they also need to have per user plan to submit the data?

In your scenario - if any of your Apps or any Flows consumed by your App use a premium connector, then you need a premium license for users of your app.

There is no service account that can be set up for a part of your app or flow.

You could share one account, but that would mean all are using that and not their own.

You could set up a premium license for Flow and have a scheduled "pump" of data from SQL to SharePoint or vice versa, but that would not be real time, and you'd need to design it.

 

I hope this is helpful information for you.
