Features that will help billing administration in Google cloud console

1. When you create a terra billing project it creates a corresponding google project organized under "No organization" in GCP. Users want the ability to organize it within their organization.
2. Today you cannot add labels to the Terra-generated google project. Users want the ability to do this to easily automate cost accounting in their institutions.
When it creates the projects, it does so in our tenant but outside of our organization. They're essentially orphan projects in our tenant. This has the following implications:
They do not inherit any policies applied to the organization. From a governance (and guardrail) standpoint, that is a no-no.
The tenant admins cannot see what is going on in the project at all. From an admin AND a billing standpoint, those are BIG no-nos.
Thank you for writing in! I've sent Tiffany's request to our development team for consideration and added your comments as support, and I'll be happy to follow up with you if this feature gets built.
Hi Etienne Low-Decarie,
In order to better understand the situation and implement a new feature, the backend team wanted to know if these observations you made about project creation were done under your regular use of Terra or through a test demo. Could you please give us a bit of info about the circumstances under which your organization found this info.
I think it would count as regular use: we signed in to https://app.terra.bio/ and linked to our GCP account from there. The same behavior arises when using my personal GCP account as when using our corporate account.
