AI Builder licensing

AI Builder is licensed as an add-on to your Power Apps, Power Automate, or Dynamics 365 license. This means you can start your AI Builder trial after you have a Power Apps, Power Automate, or Dynamics 365 license that allows you to create a Common Data Service environment.

Preview features and trial licenses

Want to get started using AI Builder? Use premium features for a limited time with a trial license, or use preview features without obtaining a license at all.

Preview features

AI Builder features that are in preview release status are free to use. You do not need to obtain a license to use preview features in AI Builder.

Trial licenses

An AI Builder trial license enables you to use AI Builder for free for the duration of the trial period.

What you get with an AI Builder trial license:

  • Create and use AI models in any environment (trial or production), because the AI Builder trial license is applicable at the user level, not environment level.
  • Store your AI model results in Common Data Service.
  • Use AI model results in your apps, flows, and more.

Note

Your trial license is specific to a user, not an environment. If you already have an environment with a Power Apps license (free or paid), you can use that environment or create a new one for your AI Builder trial.

For more information about trial licenses:

After the trial expires:

  • Trial environments expire after 30 days.
  • Once you purchase an AI Builder license, the usage will be limited to environments where the administrator allocates AI capacity.

Note

These restrictions apply only to model types that have been released to general availability. Model types in preview release status will remain available without a license until they are released for general availability.

First, you have to purchase AI Builder capacity add-on for your Power Apps or Power Automate licenses. Then, an administrator has to allocate that capacity to any Power Apps environment where you want to use AI Builder.

After your AI Builder trial license expires:

  • You have to purchase a license to continue using your AI models
  • An administrator has to assign AI Builder capacity to any environment where you want to use AI Builder.
  • You can't create or modify AI Builder models, and no new inference will be possible when the trial expires if you don't purchase a license.

Allocate AI Builder capacity

Because AI Builder is licensed as a capacity add-on to your existing Power Apps and Power Automate licenses, an administrator has to allocate capacity for AI Builder to the environment before you can use it. Information about how to allocate capacity in the Power Platform Admin Center is available in the Capacity add-ons.
