Determining Your Dataverse License: Steps to Uncover Your Licensing Status

With the increasing number of digital platforms and tools available, understanding what specific licenses you possess becomes essential. One often overlooked but crucial aspect is identifying the type of license you have, especially when it comes to the Dataverse platform. This article serves as a guide to pinpointing and understanding your Dataverse licensing status.

Steps to Verify Your Dataverse License

To determine the type of license you’ve been assigned, follow the steps below:

  1. Locate and click on the settings or cog icon within the platform.
  2. Select the ‘Plan(s)’ option from the drop-down menu.
  3. A panel will appear, displaying the plans allocated to your profile.

Why Checking Your License is Essential

You might wonder why there’s a need to regularly check your license type. Here are a few scenarios to consider:

  • Uncertainty about your access to premium connectors. Do you have the right license?
  • Receiving notifications urging you to initiate a trial period.
  • Confusion regarding your current licensing status – are you on a trial or a full license?

Cumulative Licensing Features

If you find that multiple plans have been allocated to your profile, it’s worth noting that the available features are cumulative. For instance, if you have both the ‘Power Apps for Office 365’ plan and the ‘Dynamics 365’ plan, you’ll have access to both the SharePoint resources via the Office 365 plan and the features of Dataverse/Model Driven App available with the Dynamics 365 plan.

It’s always a good idea to stay informed about your licensing status to ensure you’re leveraging all available resources. Keeping track of your licensing can also prevent any unexpected disruptions or limitations in your workflow.
