Major update: AnnouncementApplies To: AllUpdated May 29, 2020: We have updated the message below to provide more clarity.

In January we launched the self-service purchase feature that allowed users in a tenant to purchase Power platform products directly from Microsoft. This feature came with the ability for admins to turn off self-service purchase of individual products via Power Shell. Starting in July, we’re introducing the ability for a user who is blocked from purchasing a self-service purchase product to make a request that will be added to a queue in admin center. IT admins can then assign a requested license to the user from existing license or purchase new licenses to fulfill the request.

When this will happen

  • We will begin gradual roll-out of this feature in mid-June.
  • We anticipate the roll-out will be complete by the end of July.

How this will affect your organization

Once this feature is available, users who are blocked from self-service purchasing will be able to submit a request to be assigned a license by their admins. Admins will be able to manage (approve or decline) these requests within Admin center under Billing > Licenses.
