I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You will need the RDSH and RDLicensing role at a minimum. You will need to configure licensing via local group policy because you are not domain joined. And you will have to take extra steps to protect ensure you are properly licensed. RDS in the cloud is complex licensing-wise.
