How can we improve Cloud SQL?

Auto-whitelist IPs from Instance Group for SQL access.

It would be great to have an option under `SQL -> instance details -> access control -> authorization` to automatically allow connections from all VMs in a compute engine Instance Group.

Right now only explicit IP/ranges can be whitelisted, which makes autohealing/scaling somewhat less automatic, or "Cloud SQL proxy" which is pretty convoluted.

If there's already a way to do this, it doesn't seem intuitive.
Thanks :)

    In addition to the option to connect to SQL instances via Cloud SQL proxy, it would be great if there would be the alternative to authorize direct access to SQL instances by network tages associated with GKE virtual machines.

    Yes! I came across this question while googling the exact same problem.
