If you experience any error (i.e. an Access Denied) and have a related Object Type when you take a look at the error, you may wonder which entity corresponds to that Object Type.

 

There is a simple query that you can run on the organization DB to know all object types as well as other useful information about each entity. The query is:

SELECT * from EntityView
ORDER BY ObjectTypeCode

 

Nevertheless, unfortunately sometimes we are not granted direct access to production databases, so, we have to ask someone from the customer’s IT department to run it for us. That may take minutes, sometimes hours and in some cases..well…In CRM Online, on the other hand, we definitely won’t have it.

 

So, I’m sharing here the list of out of the box Object Types in order to make this finding easier:
