I currently have a custom module that lets you create an entity. The list page for this has gotten to be really long so I decided to create a view for this to allow filtering. If this were a new module that I was about to install then I could just throw the .yml file into config/staging, but since it has to be done as an update I cannot just put the .yml file there.
It looks like it needs to be created all in code in an update hook.
Is there an easier way of doing this?
