Please read through Controls for Sims 4 on Console for the full list of controls, including how to open the cheat panel and which key combinations to use, along with some frequently used cheat controls.
There's a guide here on the full list of cheats available. Not all cheats are available to console users. https://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/cheats.php
Cheats that previously worked may not work anymore Cheats won't work
Cheat Controls, and Cheat Codes will not be covered here. Please read the links above.
Cheats disable Achievements and Trophies. The exception is bb.showliveeditobjects (reference) and bb.moveobjects (reference) (There may be others but those are the only ones I have seen officially commented on).
Most Cheats must be entered in Live Mode.
Some cheats do not require testingcheats to be on. If you are having trouble, try turning testingcheats off and then enter the cheat again. Make sure you are typing the cheat in the cheat box and not in the "search" box. The search box has a character limit.
Some build cheats require a blank search for the hidden and debug objects to appear. "Open the Search panel in Build/Buy and press RT (Xbox One) / R2 (PlayStation 4) to apply a blank search." (Patch Notes Here) then scroll to the bottom of the items for all the hidden/debug/live edit objects.
Debug items you can also apply a blank search after entering the hidden objects cheat, then open the sort RT (Xbox One) / R2 (PlayStation 4), select Content>Unknown. You can also do a search by item in the search box.
