    2. From the Option group drop-down list, select the option group with database configuration values and security settings that will be applied to the restored RDS instance.


    If you select Use default group, Veeam Backup for AWS will associate the restored RDS instance with the default parameter group and the default option group automatically created by AWS.

    For a parameter group and an option group to be displayed in the lists, the groups must be created in the Amazon RDS console. To learn how to create parameter and option groups, see AWS Documentation.
