Clear license requirements for File System connector & Gateway

Please make the paid component of Gateways either free for use in Flows, or make it CLEAR that it is a PREMIUM connector at the beginning.

 

Some connectors in Power Automate Flows are branded PREMIUM, but the File System connector is not.

I have an Office 365 Business Premium license, so assumed I would be able to use the File System Connector.

The purpose of this connector is to manipulate on-premises files and folders within a Flow.

 

What is not clear to users is that they require a standalone license to use a separate prerequisite Gateway on their local system, otherwise the connector cannot be saved. 

Users can build their entire flow, download and install their Gateway, change their Region in the Gateway to match the Power Apps region so it is recognised... And only at the very last step are they informed of this paid requirement, when entering the Gateway - whereupon Flow kindly states that their license does not include use of Gateways.

 

Please make the paid component of Gateways either free for use in Flows, or make it CLEAR that it is a PREMIUM connector at the beginning.
