Occasionally, I need (or want – depending on your preference) a list of all the attributes (basic CRM metadata) in a Dynamics CRM organization. While there are several ways, including some great document generators, that will get such a list for you, SQL is always an option. If you are on-premises, or working in a developer VM, you can run this query against a CRM organization database to get the basic details. It can also be used as a starter for more complicated metadata query requirements.

SELECT		en.LogicalName
      , en.ObjectTypeCode
      , att.LogicalName
      , typ.Description
      , typ.XmlType
FROM		MetadataSchema.Entity en
        JOIN MetadataSchema.Attribute att on en.EntityId = att.EntityId
        JOIN MetadataSchema.AttributeTypes typ on att.AttributeTypeId = typ.AttributeTypeId
ORDER BY	en.LogicalName
      , att.LogicalName
