I have seen many questions on “how can one get the entity display name” in CRM. Entity display name is the name displayed on the form and not in schema. For example the display name for ‘bulkoperation’ entity is ‘Quick Campaign’. If you want to get the display name ‘ Quick Campaign’ you should use the metadata service to fetch this detail. I don’t know of any other way to fetch this information. I just wanted to post this to help people save time and not waste energy on any other way. It is really easy to use Metadata service and retrieve this information.
