  • If the database part of a database group (other than default) is renamed or removed, the backup content for database group needs to be updated manually. The old database will not be removed automatically.

  • By default, backup operations using DumpBased backup set do not include information about roles. This is because pg_dump utility that is used to perform DumpBased backup operation does not back up roles information. To save this information using the pg_dumpall utility, enable backups for global objects in PostgreSQL databases.
