    The query below lists the table default constraints.


    select schema_name(t.schema_id) + '.' + t.[name] as [table],
        col.[name] as column_name,
        con.[name] as constraint_name
    from sys.default_constraints as con
        left outer join sys.objects as t
            on con.parent_object_id = t.object_id
        left outer join sys.all_columns as col
            on con.parent_column_id = col.column_id
            and con.parent_object_id = col.object_id
    order by schema_name(t.schema_id) + '.' + t.[name],


    • table - schema and table name
    • column_id - column table id (unique within table)
    • column_name - name of the column
    • definition - SQL expression that defines this default constraint
    • constraint_name - name of the constraint in the database


    • One row: represents one default constraint
    • Scope of rows: the query returns all default constraints in the database (all columns with default constraints)
    • Ordered by: table schema and name, table column id
