    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.

    Hi, everyone!

    A new version of the Asset Store Publishing Tools has just been released. This update focuses primarily on the validation improvements following the recent Submission Guidelines update.

    Here are the key changes:

    Uploader Changes
    • Added the option to validate a pre-exported package
    • Added the option to export a .unitypackage file without uploading
    • Updated the dependency selection UI

    Validator Changes

    • Added the option to validate several asset paths at once
      • Note: when validating a package that is comprised of several folders (e.g. Assets/MyPackage + Assets/StreamingAssets + Assets/WebGLTemplates), please select all applicable paths that would be included in the package
    • Added several new validation tests for:
      • File Menu Names
      • Compressed files
      • Model Types
      • Texture Dimensions
      • Particle Systems
      • Normal Map Textures
      • Audio Clipping
      • Path Lengths
      • Script Compilation
    • Updated validation test severities based on package category
    • Updated validation tests to each have their own test logic class
    • Updated validation tests are to be displayed in alphabetical order
    • Fixed several issues with the namespace check test
    • Fixed scenes in 'Samples~' folders not being taken into account for the sample scene check test
    • Other internal changes

    Exporter Changes

    • Package exporter is now a separate module (similar to Uploader and Validator)
    • Fixed hidden folders being included when exporting package content
      • Note: this prevents an issue with the Unity Editor, where exported hidden folders would appear in the Project window as empty folders when imported, despite having content on disk. Content nested within hidden folders is still collected, provided it contains unique .meta files

    When updating Asset Store Tools from the Package Manager, don't forget to remove the existing old version from the project before importing the new one (V11.3.0) ! :)


    If you encounter any issues, please let us know in the comments or report a bug using the Unity Editor! :)

    Do you have any plans to provide us with code APIs for assetstore tools.

    We have several assets which are made and exported from a single unity project and it can be very helpful if we can automate the process which is like

    export the full project and upload as ultimate
    make a copy
    delete everything but the UtilityAI folder and export and upload as lite
    ... the same for several other packages.

    Thanks
