Is it possible to convert to PDF with specific PDF-options from the command line?

My specific problem is that I would like to force PDF/A 1a. I have found that the property is this:

<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Common/Filter/PDF/Export"><prop oor:name="SelectPdfVersion" oor:op="fuse"><value>1</value></prop></item>

LibreOffice stores this and other settings in the user profile file. But is it somehow possible to parse specific options from command line.

I'm looking for something like -outfilter similar to -infilter.

There is no "outfilter" command line parameter - because it's not needed: export filter parameters are optionally passed to --export-to after a comma after output extension - see documentation.

Still - there is no such PDF export filter parameter, and thus you only can use a dedicated pre-configured user profile (create one and copy to some directory), using -env:UserInstallation=file:///path/to/profile/with/pdf/a/config.
