Proper downloads for SQL Server 2019 when purchased per core.

Last Modified: 2019-12-06
When a client purchases SQL 2019 by Core which version of SQL 2019 should I install?
SQL Standard Edition - Per Core
SQL Standard Edition - Server/CAL

I installed it per core but then when I try to install SSRS and use the product ID it tells me that it is not a valid product ID. Plus when I download off the MS VLSC there appears to be only generic downloads. When I click on Key it says no keys are required for this product.  I have entered the client's license key and authorization number but no where else do I see anything else specific to this client.
