How to configure users of same AD into different tiers ?

Is it possible to configure users of same AD into different tiers ? We need some 1-10 users under P1 and 11-20 under P2 and rest under free tier with all the user should be able to access a set of Applications and resources hosted in that Azure AD.
How do we configure that ? If it is possible how to distinguish those users ?

Hi @SunidhiNayak-4201 • Thank you for reaching out.

This can be done by assigning users with different licenses by navigating to Azure AD > Users > Select the user > Licenses > + Assignments and

  • To 1-10 users assign Azure AD premium P1

  • To 11-20 users assign Azure AD premium P2

  • For the rest of the users, do not assign any P1/P2 license.

If you have EMS E5 subscription, the interface will look like this:

To assign licenses to multiple users, an easier approach would be to use GBL (Group Based Licensing). Add 1-10 users to Group1 and 11-20 users to Group2 and assign licenses to the groups rather than individual users. That way you will be able to distinguish between the P1/P2/Free users as well.

Thanks @amanpreetsingh-msft . GBL fulfilled our requirements.

Is licensing is always assigned as User level ? Or it can be applied at tenant level as well ?

Also, on Activating any license, is the costing is per user basis or per tenant basis ?

Hi @SunidhiNayak-4201 • The licensing is on per user basis and cannot be configured at the tenant level. However, when you assign the premium license to even one user, the premium features become available at the tenant level but to stay compliant, all users who use the premium features must be licensed individually or using GBL.

You can check Azure Active Directory pricing to see the per-user cost for P1 and P2 licenses.

Hi @SunidhiNayak-4201

Thank you for asking this question on the Microsoft Q&A Platform.

You just assign the corresponding license to each user that requires P1 and each user that requires P2.

Hope this helps,
Carlos Solís Salazar

Hi @soysoliscarlos

But is it possible to configure two different licenses to the same AD ?

Actually, when I configured P2 license, then its showing only that in the license product section. But it doesnt show Azure AD Free license. Then how do I assign users to the default free tier ?
