How To List All Triggers in the Database with sys.triggers?

If you want to list all triggers defined in the current database, you can use the catalog view, sys.triggers, as shown in the following tutorial example:

USE FyiCenterData;
GO

CREATE TRIGGER new_user ON fyi_users
AFTER INSERT 
AS
  PRINT 'New users added.';
GO

SELECT * FROM sys.triggers
GO
name         object_id   parent_id   type type_desc   
------------ ----------- ----------- ---- ------------
dml_message  690101499   674101442   TR   SQL_TRIGGER 
new_user     706101556   674101442   TR   SQL_TRIGGER 

The result shows that there are 2 triggers defined in FyiCenterData.
