THIS TOPIC APPLIES TO: yesSQL Server (starting with 2008)yesAzure SQL DatabaseyesAzure SQL Data Warehouse yesParallel Data Warehouse

Contains one row for all schema-scoped system objects that are included with Microsoft SQL Server. All system objects are contained in the schemas named sys or INFORMATION_SCHEMA.

Column nameData typeDescription
namesysnameObject name.
object_idintObject identification number. Is unique within a database.
principal_idintID of the individual owner if different from the schema owner. By default, schema-contained objects are owned by the schema owner. However, another owner can be specified by using the ALTER AUTHORIZATION statement to change ownership.

Is NULL if there is no other individual owner.

Is NULL if the object type is one of the following:

C = CHECK constraint

D = DEFAULT (constraint or stand-alone)

F = FOREIGN KEY constraint

PK = PRIMARY KEY constraint

R = Rule (old-style, stand-alone)

TA = Assembly (CLR) trigger

TR = SQL trigger

UQ = UNIQUE constraint
schema_idintID of the schema that the object is contained in.

For all schema-scoped system objects that included with SQL Server, this value will always be in (schema_id('sys'), schema_id('INFORMATION_SCHEMA'))
parent_object_idintID of the object to which this object belongs.

0 = Not a child object.
typechar(2)Object type:

is_ms_shippedbitObject is created by an internal Microsoft SQL Server component.

is_schema_publishedbitOnly the schema of the object is published.

The visibility of the metadata in catalog views is limited to securables that a user either owns or on which the user has been granted some permission. For more information, see Metadata Visibility Configuration.
