Does stash_backup_client backup the external database?

Our stash server uses an external oracle DB but the documentation on the stash_backup_client only specifies restoring to and external DB. So my questions are ....

Does the stash_backup_client backup external databases?

If so, does it use the JDBC "Restore Properties" in the backup-config.properties file?

If not, how do you backup an external database, specificaly oracle, and keep it insync with repository data?

Thanks,

Michael

The backup client backs up data in the database that your Stash server is currently connected to - whether it's an internal or external database. In your case, backups will include the data in your Oracle database.

The JDBC restore properties are ignored when backing up.

Sorry for the confusion. We'll make some changes to the backup client documentation to make that more clear.
