The following function is an expansion to the Microsoft SQL Server's built-in function INDEXPROPERTY.

It returns a table containing table names, index names, property names and property values, so it can be used for analysis and documentation purposes.

A few examples of use:

  • to show all properties for all indexes on all tables in the current database:
    select IP.TableName as TableName
     ,IP.IndexName as IndexName
     ,IP.PropertyName as PropertyName
     ,IP.PropertyValue as PropertyValue
     from dbo.fnList_IndexProperty
            (null, null, null) IP
  • to show the IsClustered property for all indexes on all tables in the current database:
    select IP.TableName as TableName
     ,IP.IndexName as IndexName
     ,IP.PropertyName as PropertyName
     ,IP.PropertyValue as PropertyValue
     from dbo.fnList_IndexProperty
            (null, null, 'IsClustered') IP
  • to show the IsUnique property for all indexes named "taspnet_Profile" on all tables in the current database:
    select IP.TableName as TableName
     ,IP.IndexName as IndexName
     ,IP.PropertyName as PropertyName
     ,IP.PropertyValue as PropertyValue
     from dbo.fnList_IndexProperty
            (null, 'taspnet_Profile', 'IsUnique') IP
