[TestRunner] command -editorTestsCategories does not work in Unity 5.6

Unity Test Runner



Priority: 7Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 3Secondary functionality broken

Reproduction steps:
1. Download "" project and open command prompt
2. Change path to Unity.exe (version 5.6)
3. Run the command - Unity.exe -runEditorTests -projectPath [PATH_TO_PROJECT] -editorTestsResultFile [PATH_TO_RESULT_FILE]\Report.xml -editorTestsCategories AAA -testPlatform editmode -nographics -batchmode

Expected: in the result file one test with category "AAA" should be passed
Actual: in the result file two tests with categories "AAA" and "BBB" are passed

Category filter was removed in Unity 5.6 and added again in 2017.1 here:

So this bug is basically a backport request for this feature.
