I have a case where I need to configure a Portal for an existing Dynamics 365 for sales. After calculating, how many members we expect to login we found out the price will be very high.
I wonder, if we use another login mechanism would the price changes?
For instance, configuring Azure AD to login in user and dealing with user information?
The pricing is independent of the authentication mechanism. Users that login have to be coverd using login capacity, users that don't login are covered using page view capacity.
Staff that login can be covered by a Dynamics 365 app license or a Power Apps plan and would not count towards login capacity usage.
Depending on how your members will use the portal you might benefit from a sales discussion with Microsoft. I'm thinking if you have a large number of logins in a particular month when everyone renews or something like that.
If I understand you correctly, the authentication mechanism does not affect the pricing. If I use Azure AD as a mechanism, the logged in member is still covered under login capacity?
Yes, that is my understanding. Anyone that logs into a portal consumes login capacity unless they are a staff member covered by a Dynamics license that includes portal access.
Bu login capacity is paid for and is $200 for 100 unique daily logins over a month. So if a person logs in every day of a month (even if they login multiple times during a day), then that is 31 logins.
If 15 people each only login once during a month then that is 15 logins. Unused logins aren't carried over and I believe you can buy add-ons for larger numbers of logins.
I don't believe changing the login mechanism would change the price.
However, you can consider the PowerApp Per App licence instead and see if this would adjust your costs.
Hope this helps.
Regarding the license and its costs, I would recommend you contact the sales team.
