Home Assistant Core#
Currently, you cannot configure the backup
password, this may change in the future, but is due to the built-in backup integration not providing this option. Additionally, the
folders options are irrelevant for Home Assistant Core users.
name option is not natively supported on Home Assistant Core. Auto Backup, however, provides a patch that enables this functionality through its service calls.
The patch is only temporarily enabled when attempting to create a backup with a custom name, if you do not specify the
name field for any of Auto Backup's services the patch wont be applied. This is an experimental feature, and while the implementation is fairly robust if you experience any issues you can stop using the
name field and report an issue on GitHub.
