How can the Azure portal be improved?

Add name of creator and date created properties for all Azure resources

Add Azure resource (e.g., web app, sql dbase, doc dbase, container registry, AKS) properties including date resource was created, and user identifier of user who created the resource.

At this time there is no easy way to identify who created an Azure resource and when. Subscriptions can have many resources with many users working within the subscription, creating resources. In many cases tracking down who created a resources months after they were created is difficult as no one remembers who created it and why.

    Thanks for providing the feedback and we will definitely look into this idea.

    In meanwhile, not as a solution to this completely but have you tried using tags for tracking details? we have introduced tagging while creation on most of the resources, so you may want to try using tags as well for tracking.

    Let us know your experience on using tags as well.

    Thanks,
    Portal Team
