Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

[Test] Is it possible to pass a test preset file (.uap) to the editor command line?

Is there a way to pass a .uap (preset file) to UE4Editor-Cmd.exe? I see a previous post from 2 years ago where this is on the internal list of things to do. Any status on that? Thanks.

Product Version: UE 4.13

Hi jackj1,

Do you have a link to the post you mentioned? I did some looking around and wasn't able to find a post on this topic from a couple years ago.

In this post "Run automated testing from command line" from asked Oct 01 '14 at 5:38 AM https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/106978/run-automated-testing-from-command-line.html "To run a preset collection through command line is not currently possible but it is on our list of things to do." Thanks Jack

Thanks for providing that link. It wasn't quite what I was looking for, which explains why I wasn't able to find it. There have been some changes to automated testing in the last few versions of the Engine, but I am not sure if we have yet added what you are looking for. I'll see if I can get some more information for you.

Hi jack,

I was able to get a little more information about this functionality. At the moment you are able to pass a group of explicit test cases via the commandline, or pass a namespace containing a batch of tests. However, we do not yet have the ability to pass in a preset file. Unfortunately Justin, who made the comment that you referred to previously, has left the company and unfortunately I do not believe that there is anyone currently working on that particular functionality.

Thanks Tim. I would appreciate it if this functionality could be added at some point.

Hi Jack,

I have entered a feature request ticket (UE-36710) to make sure this request is documented since I was unable to find an existing ticket for it.
