Do I need to purchase a license of Azure Active Directory Premium P2 for every 0365 account I have, or is it 1 license per Tenant?

    You need a license for any person that will directly or indirectly use a feature requiring P2/is under the scope of such feature.

    @Kevin Lister
    Thank you for the quick follow up on this! When it comes to what @Vasil Michev mentioned within the answer and comment, it's correct. For more info.

    The Azure Active Directory Premium P2 license is licensed per-user, for example, if you were to have your entire Azure AD tenant utilize Privileged Identity Management (PIM), the license(s) must be assigned to the administrators and relevant users who intend to use PIM.


    If you have any other questions, please let me know.
    Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.

    I know this is an old thread but I'm still confused.

    As it relates to Risky User/Risky Sign-in. We only really want to enable that functionality for certain users in our tenant. I'm hearing that I need to license all users with P2 licenses even if I only want to enable that functionality for a limited number of users in the tenant. Is that true or not?
