    Ian,


    There is a UI for this.  


    On the Environments page, click on the environment name.  You'll end up on a page where you can edit your environment's pipelines, agents and environment variables.


    We'll need to address the discoverability of this feature (or move environment administration into the Admin section).  As always, thanks for the feedback!

    Yeah, think: "An environment has a pipeline" rather than "a pipeline is in some environment".

    OK thanks, I missed the link on the environment name as the way to get to a setup page for environments, and I take Scott's point that an environment has a pipeline, but when you are creating a pipeline the next step typically is for it to be in an environment so it can be used. Therefore you would expect to be able to do this from the same area as setting up the pipeline, in a natural flow. The agents get Environments assigned from the agent page, so why not pipelines from pipeline setup? Just needs a bit of thought about consistency across the application so the user knows what to expect.

    Agreed!  That's a great point.  I've added it to the backlog.  Thank you for the feedback.
