Enhance the GKE Discovery API to include kubernetes namespaces and pods

The Google API discovery has been recently enhanced to capture kubernetes cluster information. 

The GKE discovery will then connect to the clusters to obtain lower level kubernetes data such as Pods, Namespaces etc etc. However it seems the GKE job needs to connect to each cluster individually. 

The request is for the Google API integration to also capture the kubernetes resources via the same connection. I believe this will negate the need to connect directly to the clusters to get the information. In my environment we would need to jump through a proxy for each cluster which may not be workable for the large amount of clusters we have.

As per the table below we believe it is possible to connect via the API and discover more Asset Types.  

If I was to ask for a priority can we collect Namespace, Pods and Nodes from the API. Clusters are already captured.
