Represents a view definition on a Slack app. This type extends the MetadataWithContent metadata type and inherits its content and fullName fields.

The file suffix is .view for the view definition. The accompanying metadata file is named YourViewName.view-meta.xml. The files are stored in the viewdefinitions folder in the corresponding package directory.

Slack apps are available in API version 54.0 and later.

To use this metadata type, your org must have Slack capabilities and packaging enabled.
