Licensing hosted RPA scenarios

Power Automate now supports two hosted RPA scenarios to enable organisations to set up and scale automation. As a reminder, RPA desktop flows can be run either with human interaction (known as “attended”) or without (“unattended”). The new options offer a hosted machine for attended or unattended RPA aimed at users who want to build, test or run automation. Alternatively, there’s a hosted machine group option for unattended RPA which offers automatic scaling and dynamic load balancing. From a licensing perspective, you need to acquire a Hosted RPA Add-on licence for as many bots as you want to run concurrently, and this licence has a prerequisite of either the Power Automate Per User with Attended RPA licence or a Per Flow licence, and costs $215 per bot per month.
