Even though the capability is there for superagent on an agent handler, it is not recommended and unnecessary.

Hi @cdinet / @hem

When I set up Agent-Handler I choose in which group is it going to be the correct one? As shown in the image below

ePO_agent_handlers.PNG
In the agent configuration, should it appear on this list for me to choose? Using agent-handler should it appear in this list or not?

In the repository policy, only the master epo server will show (and any distributed repositories if you have them).  The agent handlers are not in that policy because they are considered the master repository.  So if epo itself is enabled, so are the agent handlers and the clients will use whatever server it is talking to, whether it is epo or the agent handler.
