Before a user can use a Cloud PC, you must assign a Windows 365 license to that user. You can assign the licenses using either of these methods:
- Microsoft 365 admin center for individual users. For steps on how to use admin center to assign licenses, see Assign licenses to users.
- Azure AD admin center for group license assignments. For more information about group license assignments, see Assign licenses to users by group membership in Microsoft Entra ID.
- To assign direct licenses to a list of individual users, see Assign licenses for Windows 365 or see Assign license to perform through Graph
Windows 365 Frontline
This article doesn't apply to Windows 365 Frontline. Windows 365 Frontline licenses are managed directly in provisioning policies when assigning users in a targeted Microsoft Entra group.
