One question any who looks at Microsoft’s licensing for Dynamics 365 over the past 6 months has had is what entities are restricted to Dynamics 365 licenses and which entities can be used within none Dynamics 365 Model Driven Power App Applications.

Last week a customer asked if a particular entity was available so having once again checked if the list of restricted Entities at Microsoft Docs had been updated I decided to take a different approach.

We have a lot of Dynamics 365 instances scattered around for various purposes so I we randomly picked one with Dynamics 365 Sales and Customer Service installed and compared the entities there with the a new freshly created Model Driven Power Platform environment and this is a list of entities that only exist in Dynamics 365 solutions. 

But warning this is a long list and will take some time to complete.
