Docs for 5.7 and 8.0 describe "mysqlpump supports the following options, which can be specified on the command line or in the [mysqlpump] and [client] groups of an option file."


But the truth, mysqlpump reads [mysql_dump] and [client] group, not [mysqlpump].

This maybe related Bug#80834 .

How to repeat:
See source code.


Suggested fix:
Fix the docs.

Hello Tanaka-San,

Thank you for the report.

This is not a docs bug, it's a mysqlpump bug. Client programs should read, in addition to the [client] group, the group with the same name as the client program, not some other group.

mysqlpump should read [client] and [mysqlpump], not [client] and [mysql_dump].

MySQL 8.0.18 has not been fixed yet.

But document still describes

> mysqlpump supports the following options, which can be specified on the command line or in the [mysqlpump] and [client] groups of an option file.


This is *completely* wrong information.

Should fix load_default_groups or the document.

Fixed in 5.7.30, 8.0.20.

Previously, mysqlpump read the [mysql_dump] and [client] groups from
option files. mysqlpump now additionally reads the [mysqlpump]. The
[mysql_dump] group is still accepted but is deprecated.
