How do you license external users for SQL Server 2019?

There are no External Connector licenses available for SQL Server 2019. If a customer has chosen to license with the Server/CAL model, then they must buy CALs for external users and this does become expensive when there are many external users. It is generally more cost-effective to choose to license with the Per Core model if there is a large number of external users, since this will cover all internal users and any number of external users.
