SQL Query: List All Indexes And Their Columns

Looking to write a SQL query which will list out all the indexes in your database as well as the columns in the index? Well my friend you've come to the right place. The query below will give list out the following information:

Table Name (or view)
Index Name
Is Primary Key
Is Unique Index
Column Name
Is Included Column
Column Order

The results will look something like this (click the image for a larger view):

Query All Indexes And Columns

Run the query and give it a go...

SELECT  OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME(ind.object_id) AS SchemaName
      , OBJECT_NAME(ind.object_id) AS ObjectName
      , ind.name AS IndexName
      , ind.is_primary_key AS IsPrimaryKey
      , ind.is_unique AS IsUniqueIndex
      , col.name AS ColumnName
      , ic.is_included_column AS IsIncludedColumn
      , ic.key_ordinal AS ColumnOrder
FROM    sys.indexes ind
        INNER JOIN sys.index_columns ic
            ON ind.object_id = ic.object_id
               AND ind.index_id = ic.index_id
        INNER JOIN sys.columns col
            ON ic.object_id = col.object_id
               AND ic.column_id = col.column_id
        INNER JOIN sys.tables t
            ON ind.object_id = t.object_id
WHERE   t.is_ms_shipped = 0
ORDER BY OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME(ind.object_id) --SchemaName
      , OBJECT_NAME(ind.object_id) --ObjectName
      , ind.is_primary_key DESC
      , ind.is_unique DESC
      , ind.name --IndexName
      , ic.key_ordinal
