A license auto-claim policy for Power Apps and Power Automate simplifies license assignments for admins. This feature enables Power Apps and Power Automate users to automatically claim licenses when they're needed instead of requiring the admin to identify users who need licenses in advance.
Admins can set up an auto-claim policy for Power Apps per user licenses or Power Automate per user licenses in the Microsoft 365 admin center, just like they can for other Microsoft licenses.
After an admin sets up the auto-claim policy, any user in their tenant who needs a standalone Power Apps license will be automatically assigned a Power Apps per user license or Power Automate per user license when they need it. For example, if a user without a standalone Power Apps license opens an app that requires a premium license, the user will automatically be assigned a Power Apps per user license.
A report of all users who have been assigned licenses under the auto-claim policy will be available in the Microsoft 365 admin center. Admins can choose to control auto-claim policy.
