Can't Select Certain Connectors

Hi everyone,

Has anyone else had an issue where they can't select certain premium connectors, like the CDS ones? I can select some, like SQL Server connectors, but other don't do anything when I click on them.

I have Power Apps Plan 2 and Office 365 e3 licenses.

That's what I'm thinking, that the trial doesn't allow use of Power Automate premium connectors. It's just weird that the dialog box doesn't come up saying so.

I have not used a non-paid for account since the latest round of licensing changes, but you are right previously it would prompt you to start a trial of Power Automate license.

Hi @SeanHenderson 


I have used the trial plans earlier and it does allow using premium connectors. One other thing you can do is check with support if that particular connector has been disabled for use by your IT admin or Organization.


Hope this Helps!

It's a bug, I logged a support ticket. Talked the client into getting a per app license anyway.

I'm experiencing this as well, not being able to select Common Data Service connectors.  Did applying per app Power Automate License resolve this and allow those Premium connectors like Common Data Service to be selected?  I'm on Project P5 plan and I had previously been able to select Common Data Service Connectors (have some I created previously still running), but cannot create new ones using the CDS.   I'm looking into the potential of additional licensing as the resolution.


You will need to add a Power Automate license for now. This is a bug, I submitted a support ticket and they have identified it and are working on it.
