In addition to not resetting the CREATED timestamp, there is value to keep a history of restarts, and exceptions. We'll add that to the ticket as well.

Subject: Re: Flink 1.2.1 - Job initial start time
this is currently not possible. Could you please open a JIRA issue for this feature to be added. I think in the end the change should be not resetting the CREATED timestamp when calling `ExecutionGraph#restart()`.

Is there a way to know the initial start time of a job? I am looking for the first time job was started and not the time of the restart.
It seems the “start-time” reported by monitoring API under joboverview is reset after a restart.
Also, it seems the “start-time” & “timestamps” under job details are also reset when a job is restarted.
I expected the “CREATED” date under “timestamps” to be initial created time of the job but it is reset after a job is restarted.
We are using Flink 1.2.1 and trying to figure out a way to find the initial start time, if possible.
