I am using ant migration tool to deploy a new custom object to a target. This object has external sharing OWD set to Private. I've verified this in the object metadata.
When I deploy, the object is created in the target but the external sharing is set to Public Read/Write instead of Private.
Why doesn't ant set the external sharing to Private? My
package.xml is ver 45 and I'm using the jar file from the v45 Spring 19 zip file.
