SQL Query to list the Entity & Display Name in Microsoft Dynamics CRM

It is just a brief post since I need this in my current project and want to share to you and also in case I forgot where I did save it.

So here is the SQL Query as per mentioned in the Title

The Query

select en.Name, en.LogicalName, displayname.ObjectColumnName, displayname.Label, IsCustomEntity from 

entityview en
inner join LocalizedLabelLogicalView displayname
on en.EntityId = displayname.ObjectId
and displayname.ObjectColumnName = 'LocalizedName'
where IsCustomEntity = 1 -- remove this if you want to show the system entities as well
--and add the isActivity = 0 if you want to filter out the Activity entity
--if you want to remove like post album, filter, etc
--and en.Name not like '%msdyn%'
order by label



If you have multiple language for display name then I believe you need to join to the language ID as well.

Hope this helps! Thanks
