Required permissions to add a new self-hosted agent type

Using a self-hosted agent type in your pipelines#
To use a self-hosted agent type in your pipelines, the machine type in the agent definition of your pipeline needs to be updated. For example, if you named your self-hosted machine type s1-linux-small, use this configuration:
agent: machine: - os_image: ubuntu1804 - type: e1-standard-2 + type: s1-linux-small
And that's it. Now jobs using that agent type will run on the agents you registered for that type.
