The following step-by-step instruction shows how to enable the Azure Active Directory(AAD) Licensing for our add-ons. This allows to consider licenses assigned in the Office 365 portal rather than sole focus on security roles assinged in your DataVerse.
AAD licensing is required for scenarios where e.g. PowerApps Per app, PowerApps per User or Team Member licenses are utilized. (see How licenses are counted for details).
Please note: To activate the AAD (Azure Active Directory) Licensing you need administration rights! Have a look at the corresponding blog article “Licensing Guide for Microsoft Dynamics 365“.
Open your Dynamics 365 Settings, navigate to MSCRM-ADDONS-section (highlighted) and select the product you want to activate the AAD Licensing for. This activation process has to be done for each product separately. Depending on which of our solutions you choose, the main configuration window will provide you with different tabs.
For example, if you select DocumentsCorePack (DCP), the main configuration window looks like in the figure below. To activate the AAD Licensing for DCP, please navigate to the License Server-tab.
❶ Navigate to the “License Server”-tab and
❷ hit the [Enable AAD Licensing]-button.
This “Enable AAD Licensing”-window pops up. You have to enter a Dynamics 365 user and hit the [Start]-button.
A login is required. Sign in and hit the [Next]-button
Please note: It might be helpful to disable the pop-up blocker in your browser.
After the login, you will be provided with the “Permissions requested Review for your organization”.
Continue by hitting the [Accept]-button.
Please note: If you do not have an Azure administrator account available, you can use this URL and ask your admin to consent. Once done, repeat the steps.
Your Administrator only has to replace the placeholder [AAD TenantId] with the actual ID of your AAD Tenant or with the domain name of the tenant.
If the process was successful, you will be linked to our website showing the information below.
Go back to your license dialog and click on the [Enable]-button.
The System information of your Dynamics 365 shows you that your AAD Licensing is enabled
If you hit the [Edit AAD Licensing]– button, the window below opens and it allow you to [Renew], [Clear Cache], [Disable] or to [Cancel] the AAD Licensing.
If you need to enable AAD Licensing for any other of our products, just navigate to the License-tab in the respective product and activate it, like in this article.
