Our IT admin created a service account for me to create some flows of those types:

  1. Scheduled

  2. Instant

  3. Automated

The flow mainly:

  1. Connects to SharePoint lists

  2. Sends emails using outlook

Now when I first access the power automate environment I was able to create a new solution and added the above flows without issues.. but today I wanted to share the flow with other users >> I got this popup that I need a license:

enter image description here

So what is the minimum or best license I need to not get the above message? as I do not want to create a trial license, I need a permanent license instead? any advice please?
