View and Manage your AI Builder Consumption Report

By | March 21, 2024

AI Builder is a tool offered by Microsoft as part of the Power Platform. It’s licensed based on the capacity you need for your organization. This capacity is managed by an administrator who allocates it to different environments within the Power Platform.

Different features of AI Builder consume credits at different rates. Credits are like units that represent your usage of AI Builder capabilities.

To calculate the cost of the capacity of credits for your business need, Microsoft provides an AI Builder calculator. This tool helps you assess your requirements based on your specific use cases and needs.

For more detailed information on how AI Builder capacity works, you can refer to the AI Builder licensing page provided by Microsoft.

Assign credits of your Power Apps and flows

To assign credits first step is to add your environment within the Power Platform Admin Center.

Then go to Resources > Capacity > Add-ons>Assign to an environment. From there, you can assign the AI Builder capacity to a specific environment. By completing this process, you enable the monitoring and management of AI Builder usage within the designated environment. This ensures that you can effectively track the consumption of AI Builder features and allocate resources accordingly, optimizing their utilization.
