Currently if users wish to find the "latest" build that was deployed, they need to rely on the "created" timestamp.
AQL supports the following build search terms:
url, name, number, created (Date), created_by (User), modified, modified_by, id
However, there are multiple problems with relying on the "created" statistic:
- It can be overwritten with a header (X-Artifactory-Created)
- It is occasionally lost when migrating via System Export (RTFACT-9624)
Instead, there should be a way to find the build's "started" timestamp, as that metadata is hard-coded into the buildinfo.json file.
This parameter is also required to successfully publish buildinfo metadata.
