Licensing for external website connecting to CDS

Hi

 

I have a scenario where a client wants to hook their CDS up to WordPress to expose some event details to customers and get them to RSVP plus capture other info.  Reading the Power Platform licensing guide it sounds like all of their customers that use the WordPress website to see the event details and RSVP will need to have a Power Apps license.  Am I correct about this?

 

I understand that the Power Apps portals would be the intended solution for this scenario but my client is a small business and finds the Power Apps portals license too costly when all we want to do is something very simple - 2 web pages.  Compare a NZ$15 per-month hosting license for WordPress vs NZ$150 for Power Apps Portal.  I know that this comparison is not fair since the Power Apps Portal gives access to CDS and all the other wonders of the Power Platform - you don't get that with WordPress.  I do wonder if Power Platform is right for my client if they want a low cost solution with a customer facing component.

 

Does anyone else have thoughts or comments around this?

Hi @HSheild 

 

Yes, you are right, all users that you want to be able to use the CDS features or information from CDS will need a valid license, a previous Plan 1 or Plan 2 are required or the newly added Per-App or Per User plans: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/
