What does changes to portal licensing mean for current customers?

 

  • Does the change to PowerApps Portal bring any physical changes to the portal or is this just a licensing exercise.
  • Does the consumption model mean a customer can have as many portals as they want linked to a single instance of Dynamics CE (e.g. 100+)
  • If a customer has more connections than they have paid for in a given month will the connecting users receive an error message or will it still work.

Re: What does changes to portal licensing mean for current customers?

Hi There

 

1. This is a license Exercise. you can not load a portal into a blank CDS environment as well, or still use the D365 flavoured portals as they currently are.

2. please tell me that the 100+ portals is just an example. 😄 You may have a max of 5 portals per tenant and a max of one portal type per environment. See HERE for more details.

3. Based on thie following clause in the licensing guide : "While occasional and reasonable overages will be tolerated, customers exceeding purchased capacity should adjust their purchase quantity per standard Microsoft terms to remain in compliance." This leads me to believe that this will still work, HOWEVER, this is not an opportunity to take advantage. This service is monitored.

Re: What does changes to portal licensing mean for current customers?

Hi @ChrisH ,

For existing D365CE users that use the old D365 Portals via the old licensing model, when will those customers need to start buying the new capacity login SKUs?  Is it at next renewal of their D365CE SKUs or sooner?

 

Many thanks,

 

Gavin.

Whats up man!

up that seems to be the case... all I can see is "Until Grandfathering Ends" which says "On Renewal" to me.

I'll seek a bit more clarity on that one and if I get anything Ill post here. For now, Check out the D365 Licensing Bootcamp PDF attached here.
