A Windows 10 “Home to Pro Right” license has been added to the April Product Terms, and is listed as being available only via the MPSA.
This addition is aimed at giving customers a way to legitimise a potential area of non-compliance, where they have installed Windows 10 Enterprise on a device with a base license of Windows Home edition. (This is non-compliant as Windows licenses on Volume Licensing are “upgrade-only” and Home (for corporate customers) isn’t a “qualifying OS” from which to upgrade.)
There are a few pre-requisites and requirements regarding eligibility for these licenses:

must have a license acquired for it.
You can see this, and more info, on page 41 of the April 2017 Product Terms document.
