Download your own packages
December 7, 2022
As of now, you can download your own packages on the new Publisher Portal. The feature is currently available only for packages in the Draft status. To download packages from a published, rejected or deprecated asset, you would need to create a new draft of this asset first.

The ability to add and remove users to/from a publisher organisation has been made available on the new publisher portal.
Asset Store Tools update
July 20, 2022
The Verified Solutions QA team has used some of its engineering resources to make another big update to Asset Store Tools!
- Added Feedback window
- Added category, size, and last modified date next to the package
- Added a link to the publishing portal next to the package
- New uploading flow - “Pre-exported .unitypackage”
- Special Folders can now be selected and uploaded together with the package’s main folder (i.e. StreamingAssets, Plugins)
- You can now upload to multiple packages at the same time without waiting for the first one to finish
- Package can now be validated in the Uploading window by pressing the “Validate” button
- (Experimental) Custom exporter - will export your package ~2 times faster, but may miss some asset previews in the final product. To enable it - click three dots on the top right side of the window and enable “Use Custom Exporting”
Improvements and Changes
- All brand new code to simplify the maintenance and modularity
- Updated package validation tool with easier to understand descriptions, new tests and new UI. (This tool will scan your package for potential reasons for rejection and provide feedback)
- Brand new UX with multiple upload workflows
- Login window: Improved layout with ability to login through Unity Cloud Services
- Login window: Errors are now more elaborate and user-friendly
- Upload window: New Tooltips are now added to each upload process step
- UI has been reworked using UI Toolkit
- Improved top bar, including search and sorting
- Draft packages moved to the top
- Added refresh and logout buttons to the bottom toolbar for easier access
- Packages caching: package information will no longer be redownloaded every time you open the Uploader window during the same Editor session
- Previous uploading flow (folder selection) has been renamed to “From Assets Folder”
- Dependencies check has been renamed to “Include Package Manifest” for clarity
Will my old downloaded version of the tools still work?
— The older "Asset Store Tools" will continue to function after this update is released (If you are feeling nostalgic). We understand that some of you already have specific processes set up when uploading and we do not wish to cause interruptions with your current flow.
Is there a way to download the older version of the tools?
— We will not be supporting an official way to retrieve the older versions of the tools, but if we find the update is disruptive to publishers work, then we will consider reverting to the previous version ASAP.
Accepted Unity versions
July 20, 2022
As the Unity Editor keeps evolving, we have updated the lowest Unity version required for new packages and updates. New assets must use Unity version 2020.3 LTS or newer. Assets which are already published should use Unity version 2019.4 or newer. Publishers may want to consider removing package uploads from previous versions, as our editor version usage data indicates that fewer than 4% of our users are using 2018.x or previous versions.

Curation status indication
October 28, 2021
Curation status indicates the expected waiting time / position in the queue for the packages that are being curated (1) and gives feedback for rejected packages (2). A lightning icon next to a pending package (3) means this package was set to auto-publish mode upon submission and will be published automatically once accepted. The packages that were not set to be auto-published require manual publishing.
A detailed explanation of rejection reasons (4) is available on the individual package page.

Launch discount is introduced as part of the asset submission workflow. This self-service feature allows publishers to apply a discount to new asset packages at launch. Discounts can be applied to any new asset priced $15 or more when it is first published. Publishers get to decide the discount amount (10%, 30%, or 50%) and duration (one or two weeks) themselves.
