      • Internal DNS entries for instance tags

        When a tag is applied to an instance it should generate an internal dns entry.

        Example:

        tag prod-db is applied to prod-db-1 instance which has an internal ip of 10.0.0.1

        prod-db-1 would have a fqdn of: prod-db-1.c.project-1.internal and a lookup against that host from a different instance would resolve the ip to 10.0.0.1.

        I'm proposing that additional host entries be added for tags. Example:

        prod-db-tag.c.project-1.internal

        This is useful because just like tags are used for source/destination tags in the firewall they would also be useful via dns from the instances.

        Yes, it's entirely possible to write scripts that determine these…

        • Latency Resource Record Sets for DNS, like GeoDNS

          I know there is HTTP(S) Load Balancing, but it not work for non HTTP application like UDP based or mail service, and HTTP(S) Load Balancing is also expensive, paid for every hour but not pay-as-you-go. It will be good to support GeoDNS like Route53 and that's a easier way to set up Cross-Region Load Balancing.

          • Domain Alias

            If I have domain "abc-def.com" as a main zone.
            I want the ability to also add "abcdef.com" as an alias zone and what is defined in the first should be available for the alias also.

            • Issue when creating nested subdomain of verified domain through API

              Verified domain: example.com
              Subdomain: d.c.b.a.example.com

              When trying to create a nested subdomain of a verified domain, at a certain level, it errors with:
              ERROR: (gcloud.dns.managed-zones.create) HTTPError 400: Please verify ownership of the 'd.c.b.a.example.com.' domain (or a parent) at http://www.google.com/webmasters/verification/ and try again

              The weird thing is that there are no issues with creating a.example.com, b.a.example.com or c.b.a.example.com through the API (gcloud CLI or terraform).

              Also, creating the same domain via the control panel works with no issues. We are doing that currently as a workaround and importing it in the terraform state but it is cumbersome and error prone.
