CAPsMAN and multiple CAPs

Hi there,
I want to build a network with hAP ac as a CAPsMANager and I want to connect 10 hAP ac lites using ethernet cables to it. For the last few days I was watching tutorials, presentations from MUM, reading manuals and this forum, they were very helpful but I cannot find the information on how to connect more than 4 CAPs to hAP ac. hAP ac has only 4 available ethernet ports for CAPs - how can I connect remaining 6 CAPs to it? I suspect I have at least 3 options here:
  • some switch configuration?
  • maybe I can connect CAP to another CAP via ethernet cable and it will find CAPsMAN?
The problem is now I have to buy some devices and I don't want to buy so much hardware without the plan.

How can I connect 10 CAPs to 1 CAPsMAN?

If you want to help me - thank you. But please try to tell me something more than "use switch", e.g. "buy this switch, https://mikrotik.com/product/CSS326-24G-2SplusRM, connect your CAPsMAN device to 1st port, when you will connect CAPs to the switch, they will find the CAPsMAN device automatically".
