Azure Pipelines Agent (VSTS Build Agent) 2.144.0

The cross platform build and release agent for Azure Pipelines and Team Foundation Server 2015 and beyond. An agent that you set up and manage on your own to run build and deployment jobs is a self-hosted agent. You can use self-hosted agents in Azure Pipelines or Team Foundation Server (TFS). Self-hosted agents give you more control to install dependent software needed for your builds and deployments.
