Further --no-password is already an alias for -w, so that flag is effectively taken.
Since the main restriction with AWS RDS is the unavailability of pg_authid, probably that is a better basis to name the flag on. Attaching a patch to add a new flag (--no-pgauthid) to pg_dumpall that can dump Globals without needing pg_authid. So the following works with AWS RDS Postgres databases. pg_dumpall --no-pgauthid --globals-only > a.sql I'll create a Commitfest entry, if there aren't many objections. - robins
