Dedicated Agents

I have the following scenario: I have two of Agents (Agent A and Agent B) and three plans (Plan A1, Plan A2 and Plan B1).  Both Agents have the same capabilities, Plan A1 and PlanA2 have same requirements, however Plan B has different requirements than Plan A1 and Plan A2.  I dedicated Agent A to Plan A1 and Plan A2, we are noticing that even though, Agent B has the same capabilities, it will not build Plan A1 or Plan A2 if any of them are idled, while Agent A builds either Plan A1 or Plan A2.  We thought that Agent B would still be shared across any builds that meets the build requirements.  We are assuming that once you dedicate an agent to a plan, only that the dedicated agent can build the plan.

Unfortunately the dedication goes both directions. It is also an exclusive assignment of a plan to an agent.

I do not know why Atlassian made this restriction.
