How to create a custom permission in Drupal 8 ?

Example with a module 'mymodule'

Step 1.
Create if not exist yet, mymodule.permissions.yml (root of mymodule)
Add your new permission like:

mymodule test_permission:
    title: 'My Test Permission'
    description: 'The description'
    restrict access: false

Step 2.
On your mymodule.routing.yml
  path: 'test/home'
    _controller: '\Drupal\mymodule\Controller\Test::home'
    _title: 'My test Home'
    _permission: 'mymodule test_permission'

Set permissions on : /admin/people/permissions

This is why I love Drupal. I thought it would take forever to achieve this but just as you have demonstrated, with a few lines of code, I have managed to restrict access to the correct user roles. Thanks a lot.
