mariabackup doesn't read [mariabackup] option group in configuration file

    Details

    • Sprint:
      10.0.34

      Description

      The mariabackup tool currently reads the [xtrabackup] option group from configuration files. It inherited this behavior from Percona XtraBackup, and it probably makes sense to keep it. However, wouldn't it also make sense for mariabackup to read the [mariabackup] option group? It doesn't currently seem to do so.

      e.g. if someone wants to set a user name and password, they can currently do the following:

      [xtrabackup]
      user=sstuser
      password=password
      

      But maybe it would make sense to also support the following?:

      [mariabackup]
      user=sstuser
      password=password
