User can't easily configure location of both UPM and Asset Store package local cache



Users would like to easily configure the location of the package cache for both, UPM and Asset Store packages.

  1. Resolution Note (2022.1.X):

    Hello everyone, the ability to configure Package Manager cache settings has been a missing feature in the product, we recognized that. This is currently getting worked on. Since we are now tracking this as feature work rather than a bug, we are closing this record. Nonetheless, please rest assured that this work is happening and will be released as soon as possible. Please follow the status of the card on Package Manager’s public roadmap :

    Not quite sure if this is the same thing, but the UPM_CACHE_ROOT variable described here doesn't seem to have any effect for me:

    packages take up 10GB, and runtime cache > 5GB... there is no way to do so...
    pls either give us control or change it to installation location...

    PLEASE sort this out - I have to fight dozens of apps who all lazily insist on polluting my C drive, which is a space limited SDD that windows also insists of polluting with files I can't delete. App developers should never assume a particular location is a free for all.

    The current Linux location is "$HOME/.config/unity3d/cache".

    Instead it should be "${XDG_CACHE_DIR}/unity3d/", and fallback to "${HOME}/.cache/unity3d/"

    Would be nice to also have an option to use Cache Server/Accelerator for the package cache! We waste a lot of disk space on each single machine that is used for our Unity projects.

    Please either give us control or stop abusing our local storage as for install packages they should be downloaded from your server "on demand" every time.

    Same here, C is a small SSD drive, full of Unity packages...
    I know several people having the same issues, can you please just add a setting for this? (any workaround like a registry key or a config in Unity Hub, or even each Unity version, would do!)
