We are currently doing our deploys using Ant. In our package.xml, we have "almost" everything set to "*".
We noticed that after a deployment, the Global Action layouts, as well the default values we had set for some fields didn't make to the target org.
Going through the documentation, I wasn't able to find a specific Global Action metadata type -> Metadata Types
I found a comment under the Success Community where one user said: "Global Action / Publisher Layout is listed in the Page Layouts component type without a value in the Type column."
In our package.xml, for the Layout metadata type, we are "deploying" everything as below:
<types> <members>*</members> <name>Layout</name> </types>
Am I missing anything, or Global Actions, including their Page Layouts and default values are considered a "post deploy" step?
