    Hi @Paweł Adamczak ,

    Please note that these are technical forums, and is not meant for providing legal advice on licensing. licensing questions are best asked directly to a trained Microsoft licensing specialist.

    You can contact Microsoft directly and discuss your licensing needs -

    For more information about licensing your RDS deployment, see:

    License your RDS deployment with client access licenses (CALs)
