New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2024 Wave 1: Receive Intelligent License Recommendations for Admins

Power AutomateThis post is part of the New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2024 Wave 1 series in which I am taking a look at the new functionality introduced in Microsoft Power Automate 2024 Wave 1.

The 1st of the new functionality in the Cloud Flows section is receive intelligent license recommendations for admins.

This feature simplifies the license assignment process for admins and enables a governed self-serve mechanism for premium features access. Admins don’t always know who needs a license and why. They need to understand which users are using Power Automate and require a premium license. They can rely on Power Automate intelligent license recommendations to provide them with a list of users who will benefit from having a premium license.

Enabled for: Admins, makers, marketers, or analysts, automatically
Public Preview: Apr 2024
Early Access: –
General Availability: –

Feature Details

Admins can:

  1. Receive intelligent license recommendations with a list of users based on:
    • License requested by users
    • Trial users
    • Seeded users without premium license
    • Active users without premium license
  2. Automatically assign licenses to the selected users directly or through a security group

My Opinion

I’m not generally involved in the licencing aspect of things, nut this sounds like it could be useful, as Microsoft licensing is notorious for being overly complex.

New Functionality In Microsoft Power Automate 2024 Wave 1: Series Index

Power AutomateThis post is part of a series on the new functionality announced for Wave 1 of Microsoft Power Automate 2024. There are two release waves for Power Automate each year, with functionality being released over the six months of the wave.

In this series of posts, I am going to take a look at what is new with Power Automate in this release wave. My understanding is the announced new functionality will become available in the six months of the wave, so not all of it will be available immediately. When posting about some new functionality, I’ll try to indicate where something will be available in October or later. Microsoft do reserve the right to withdraw announced functionality before release; when this happens, I’ll try to publish an article on the removed functionality and update the original article I published to show that it has been removed from that release wave.

This series index, below (assuming you’re reading this on azurecurve | Ramblings of an IT Professional), will automatically update as each post in the series goes live, so make sure you bookmark this post so you can see keep up-to-date with this series.
