Hello Team,
We are in process of cleaning up the Azure resources that are not getting used.
we have resources which were created 2 years back like storage accounts resource groups etc

In Activity log we might get info till past 90 days . So in this scenario how to get the mail id of the members who created it as there are no owner tags too for the resources

    Short Answer: You cannot.
    Long Answer: Unless you have been collecting the activity logs for the period of time you need (up to 2 years in Log Analytics, 90 days for free) or longer by exporting the logs, then you cannot see who created the resources. Azure Resource Manager does not keep historical logs of all events that have occurred, but the state that they are in now and the activity logs.
