If I plan to buy E5 licenses, will my Entra ID be upgraded from free to premium, or are they separate licenses? I currently have the free version of Entra ID.

    Hi @Abdullah ,

    Microsoft 365 E5 for enterprise customers includes Microsoft Entra ID P2 as part of the bundle, so once you assign the E5 license, the Entra version should upgrade.
