Amazon RDS for Oracle now supports copying option groups during in-region cross-account snapshot copy requests using the API, CLI, or Amazon Backup. Amazon RDS uses option groups to enable and configure features that make it easier to manage your databases. Copying the option groups with the snapshot on cross account copy allows you to restore that snapshot in the target account with the same options as the source snapshot without needing to reconfigure the option groups. 

A new optional Boolean parameter CopyOptionGroup is now added to the CopyDBSnapshot API and CLI commands. You can now copy options groups not present on the destination snapshot from the source snapshot by setting this parameter to true.

The CopyOptionGroup parameter is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. To learn more, review the Amazon RDS documentation. To try out CopyOptionGroup with your snapshot, visit the Amazon CLI, and Amazon SDK help guides.
