Applies to: SQL Server (all supported versions) Azure SQL Managed Instance Azure Synapse Analytics Parallel Data Warehouse
Contains a row for each SQL Server stored procedure that was created as a numbered procedure. This does not show a row for the base (number = 1) stored procedure. Entries for the base stored procedures can be found in views such as sys.objects and sys.procedures.
Numbered procedures are deprecated. Use of numbered procedures is discouraged. A DEPRECATION_ANNOUNCEMENT event is fired when a query that uses this catalog view is compiled.
|Column name||Data type||Description|
|object_id||int||ID of the object of the stored procedure.|
|procedure_number||smallint||Number of this procedure within the object, 2 or greater.|
|definition||nvarchar(max)||The SQL Server text that defines this procedure.
NULL = encrypted.
XML and CLR parameters are not supported for numbered procedures.
The visibility of the metadata in catalog views is limited to securables that a user either owns or on which the user has been granted some permission. For more information, see Metadata Visibility Configuration.
