PowerApps and Flow new licensing

Microsoft have recently announced new licensing plans for PowerApps and Flow

understanding Microsofts licensing is quite difficult task and we are a bit confused and have questions like

  1. We have Office 365 (E3) subscription for PowerApps and Flow, once the subscription term expires then Do I need to switch to new PowerApps and Flow Plans? Or can I use PowerApps or Flow on renewal of Office 365 subscription?
  2. How new licensing Module will impact existing license plan? What will happen with existing P1 and P2 Licenses?
  3. What will happen with existing Flow and Apps created based using E3 subscriptions?
  4. As we have E3 subscription which includes(Standard connectors), what will be the risk/impact after reclassification of connectors(Standard to Premium)? Why connectors are reclassified if there is new license structure? 
  5. Will there still be connector classification in new licenses structure? 
  6. There are few licenses listed in our tenant and I am not able to understand what they used for?
    1. Microsoft Flow Free
    2. PowerApps Plan2 Trial
    3. PowerApps and Logic Flows
  7. What is 'Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online' license used for? Does this include PowerApps and Flow?

Re: PowerApps and Flow new licensing

Hi @rajp ,

For your first question, once your Office 365 (E3) subscription for PowerApps and Flow has been expired, you could still use PowerApps or Flow on renewal of Office 365 subscription.


For your second question, new licensing Module will not impact existing license plan, until existing P1 and P2 Licenses have been expired.


For your third question, some connectors would be reclassified from Standard to Premium (e.g. SQL, Azure, Dynamics365, etc), a standalone PowerApps or Flow plan license is required to access all Premium, on-premises and custom connectors.


For your forth question, just as aboe response. The listed below standard connectors would be reclassified from Standard to Premium:


	Azure Application Insights
	Azure Automation
	Azure Blob Storage
	Azure Container
	Azure Cosmos
	Azure Data Factory
	Azure Data Lake
	Azure DevOps
	Azure Event Grid
	Azure Event Grid Publish
	Azure File Storage
	Azure IoT Central
	Azure Kusto
	Azure Log Analytics
	Azure Log Analytics Data Collector
	Azure Queues
	Azure Resource Manager
	Azure SQL
	Azure SQL Data Warehouse
	Azure Table Storage
	Dynamics 365
	Dynamics 365 Customer Insights
	Dynamics 365 for Finance & Operations
	Dynamics 365 Sales Insights
	Dynamics 365 Business Central
	Dynamics 365 Business Central (on-premises)
	Dynamics NAV
	Event Hubs
	Service Bus
	SQL Server



For your fifth question, yeah, new connector classification would still be in new licenses structure.


For your sixth question, a) and b) represents the free trial license for PowerApps and Microsoft Flow. c) represents the combination License for PowerApps and Logic Flow (in Azure)


For your seveth qurstion, Effective October 1, 2019, Dynamics 365 license would not include PowerApps and MS Flow license.
