Check creation time of Azure VM

Q. How can I check the creation time of an Azure VM?

A. To check the creation time of an Azure VM you can use the Activity Log (providing it has not been recycled).

Navigate to Monitor - Activity Log and set the Event category to Administrative with Event severity to Informational.

The operation name will be Write VirtualMachines which will show the timestamp of the creation.
