Add permissions to allow a User to upgrade Discovery environment size

BMC Software has an agreement with IBM to host multiple Customers in BMC's Watson account.

BMC invites a Customer's admin user(s) who have Admin permissions on the Resource group created for the Customer. A Customer can have a Watson Discovery instance purchased from BMC Software in this Resource group.

We have to provide Admin permissions to Customer's Admin Users as they need to invite other User's from Customer's organization and provide them access to the Watson services purchased by the Customer.

We see that Customer can potentially use Discovery API to change the environment size on a Discovery instance. We want IBM to introduce a permission which allows / disallows this capability to a User,

Customer's pay different monthly charges as per Discovery environment size and we do not want them to change environment size on their own thereby resulting in loss of revenue to BMC Software.
