select distinct schema_name(v.schema_id) as schema_name, as view_name,
       schema_name(o.schema_id) as referenced_schema_name, as referenced_entity_name,
       o.type_desc as entity_type
from sys.views v
join sys.sql_expression_dependencies d
     on d.referencing_id = v.object_id
     and d.referenced_id is not null
join sys.objects o
     on o.object_id = d.referenced_id
join sys.indexes i 
     on v.object_id = i.object_id
     and i.type = 1
 order by schema_name,


  • schema_name - view schema name

  • referenced_entity_name - name of the referenced object
  • entity_type - type of referenced entity
