Use gMSA accounts for everything
Currently gMSA accounts can be used as Windows Service accounts for SQL Server. gMSA you never have to provide the password just the account name for approved devices. It would be nice if you could also use gMSA accounts for SQL Server Credentials for SSIS Jobs. For SSRS Data Connectors to a database. Essentially it would make things more secure than using a traditional "Service Account" that we put into a data source or credential and never update the password. The password is saved in some document somewhere. Same accounts being used for multiple purposes. By using a gMSA account nobody would ever need to know the password, it would always just work.
Any updates on this? I'd also like this functionality for various proxy scenarios using SQL Credentials due to aforementioned security benefits.

This is a wonderful idea from where I stand. Been a dream for several years now.
I think this is a great idea. I have several customers that would benefit from this capability. Using a MSA as a credential in SQL Server would go a long way toward helping companies eliminate what are essentially shared accounts and passwords.
