Because the AVD External Per-User Access licensing is applied per subscription, and because my client only have one subscription hosting all 4 of our host pools, this means we are unable to separate our external per-user access licensed users from our internal E5 licensed users. In its current state, we will get charged twice when an internal user connects to any host pool (Noting this is not an immediate problem as the External Per-User Access licenses are free until the end of this year).


how this could be addressed without us having to create a new subscription and rebuild our internal host pools, then that would be appreciated.
