Dataverse license with Microsoft 365 Standard and Basic subscription

Hello,

 

I'd like to use the Dataverse connector in Power Automate; in our company our users have Microsoft 365 Standard and Basic subscription, but it seems that we can't use the premium connectors with those plans; now the question: is it right? If I want to use the premium connectors, all the user must have the power automate per user plan added to our subscription plans or one user plan is enough? And if I want to use them also in Power Apps? Another license?

@mmangiante ,

Well I’m afraid that you need licenses for both users. The system determines the flow category based on the inside actions.

You can try to create on service user account a connection to dataverse with the system user account credentials to see if it works.
In powerautomate -> dataverse -> connections -> add new connection .

@mmangiante ,

If the actions inside the flow are executed using an user connection then that user need to have powerautomate per user license. 

For example, for a powerautomate - automatic cloud flow has an action DataVerse - List Rows (premium connection) then only the user needs license:

Also, if is a instant flow called from powerapps, then the powerapps license (there also licenses in powerapps) cover the premium connectors. 

Hello @gabibalaban 

thanks for your quick reply. One more question: I use one "central" account to create the flow for our company, and use another service account when there is an action that asks for user connection: I have to license both? I ask this because, in my question example, when I tried to use the action "Add a new row" with the first account, a popup appeared to propose the trial of 90 days: so as you said previously, I have to but 2 license, one for the account that create the flow and another for the service account, right?

Hello @gabibalaban 

the connection with Dataverse using the service account was created; now I have only to try to enable the account that I use to create the flows to per user account license.
