Get-CIView

This cmdlet retrieves cloud views objects. The cmdlet converts CIObject to Cloud view object. Supports getting views from CISearchResult objects returned by the Search-Cloud cmdlet. An Id property must be present in the CISearchResult objects. If an Id is specified, the result view is determined by the ViewType parameter. If ViewType is not passed, the cmdlet returns the most complete representation of the object visible to the user by using the following priority: Extension, Admin, User.
