Show how Azure Resources were created

James C 1 Reputation point

Is there a way to show or prove how a resource was created in Azure? For example, you can look at Activity Logs or Deployment History, but does it show that it was in fact created using an ARM template or via the portal? The company wants to prove that all resources were created using ARM templates and not just manually configured using the portal for instance.

    Hi @James C

    Thanks for using this forum, sorry I'm writing from mobile- you could take a look at this doc

    The Change history (Preview) feature might help on getting the details you need

    You can tell if it has been created by ARM template by looking at the deployment tab. You will see details of the deployment, and the template used here.
