Business value

As we are experiencing an increasing level of customers exceeding entitled capacity, we need to ensure customers are freeing up and archiving data more frequently or buying additional capacity to be in compliance. With this change we will enforcing storage capacity entitlement, to ensure customers cannot inadvertently fall out of compliance.

Feature details

When an organization’s storage capacity usage is greater than the entitled capacity, the following admin operations will be blocked:

  • Create new environment (requires minimum 1GB capacity available)
  • Copy an environment
  • Restore an environment

To be compliant with storage usage requirements, customers can always free up storage, archive data, delete unwanted environments, or buy more capacity. To learn more about capacity add-ons, see the Add-ons section in the Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide or the Power Apps and Power Automate Licensing Guide. You can work through your organization’s standard procurement process to purchase capacity add-ons.
