Power Platform Licensing Guide

There’s an updated (May 2024) Power Platform Licensing Guide. The main change is the replacement of the Power Automate Hosted RPA Add-on licence with the full (no prerequisites) Power Automate Hosted Process licence. This license is a superset of the Power Automate Process licence but with the addition of a Microsoft hosted virtual machine and an unattended RPA bot.

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.
