Manage Artifacts

Create and manage product artifacts and binaries

Are you a Closed Beta partner? If you are not participating in the Closed Beta release, you can access documentation by using your Epic Games account to sign in to the Knowledge Base.

The Artifacts page allows users to view, edit, and add artifacts to their product.

When your product was created, a product Artifact was also created. Artifacts are used to fulfill user requests to download content. To make an Artifact promotable, you will upload a binary to the artifact via the BuildPatchTool.
