"PowerApps Portals" how licensing detects if internal user/organizatioal user logged in


Currently Portal supports for external as well as internal users to use. but wondering how licensing will work if internal user logged in becuase by default portal is explosed anonymously to all and there is only sign in avaiable like "Azure AD" for internal users so does that mean when user logged in with "AZure AD" will it treat as internal user?



PowerApps Portals will be licensed per the following:

  • External users (authenticated) will be $200 for 100 logins/month.
  • External users (anonymous) will be $100 for 100,000 web page views/month.
  • Internal users are able to access portals using a PowerApps per app or per user plan as per above.

Hi @Keval ,

If you login in with your Azure AD, it does not mean that you are internal user.

You need to be in the same group , then you are internal user.

If you want someone not in your organization's group have access to the app and login in with Azure AD, you need to add him as guest user, which means external user.

Here's a blog about how to add a guest user for your reference:

To sum up, you not only need to login in with Azure AD , but also need to be in the group, then you are internal user.

Hello @v-yutliu-msft  thanks for your reply,


I want to understand when you say use should be in organization group so where you can define and set that group? Please note I want to understand in terms of "PowerApps Portals" not basic canvas or model driven app.


Thanks & regards, Keval

 Hi @v-yutliu-msft,


Thanks for an explanation. Could you please solve my below doubt.

Can i use PowerApp portals  for creating a website or a portal for internal use of my organization, like Training Registration portal or something like that.

And if yes then , do we not need to give any authentication method like Azure AD?

How internal people will be Authenticated and authorized?
