Enabling Backups for Global Objects in Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL Databases

You can back up global objects, such as roles, in a PostgreSQL database. To back up global objects, the Commvault software uses the pg_dumpall utility with the -c, -g, --no-role-passwords, and -s options.

Before You Begin

The global objects dump is supported only for Indexing Version 2 clients. For PostgreSQL agents, Indexing Version 2 is enabled by default for newly installed clients in Feature Release 11.30 and more recent versions.
