License requirement confusion to use data gateway for Cloud to desktop connection

Hi,

 

So I was planning on building a rather simple demo process to show my team. However, having ran into a single major issue (related to data gateway / using the new machines feature) I have several questions regarding the license requirements. The desktop flow would be an Attended one.

 

If I was to use data gateway, will a "Per-user plan" be enough?

If I wanted to use the new machines feature a "Per-user plan with attended RPA" is required right?

 

Thanks in advance!

The data gateway and the machine, essentially do the same thing: that is they allow a user to connect PAD to the cloud (logs, run attended /unattended from the cloud etc.). To unlock the full capabilities of PAD (and the whole Power Automate platform - for attended scenarios) you would need a "Per-user plan with attended RPA".  (To see what is included in this plan, please refer here)

 

For your demo, you could also start a trial with your organizational account or if you don't need the cloud connectivity, even use your personal, Microsoft account.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.
