MC213897 (Updated) New Feature: Self service purchase user request workflow 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.
