Get Feature Name from ID
I recently found some SharePoint log entries that pointed to a feature but only gave me an ID (guid). Hunting around, I found the easiest way to figure out what feature it was, was to open SQL Management Studio. Find the SharePoint database, in my case WSS_Content. There are 2 tables of interest.
The following SQL queries helped me figure what feature the logs were referring to.
SELECT Features.FeatureId, FeatureTracking.FeatureTitle
FROM Features, FeatureTracking
WHERE Features.FeatureId = FeatureTracking.FeatureID;
This will give you all the feature names you have available.
Or I found that given that I had a feature id ‘53164b55-e60f-4bed-b582-a87da32b92f1’, I could simply query the FeatureTracking table directly.
WHERE FeatureId = ‘53164b55-e60f-4bed-b582-a87da32b92f1’
