sys.triggers (Transact-SQL)

Contains a row for each object that is a trigger, with a type of TR or TA. DML trigger names are schema-scoped and, therefore, are visible in sys.objects. DDL trigger names are scoped by the parent entity and are only visible in this view.

The parent_class and name columns uniquely identify the trigger in the database.
