The project backup task has a limited scope: tables (dictionary and data export), views (either as a logical table or as an exported table), resources, files and report templates. Other project elements that are not part of the backup: user and group permissions, view change history, table analysis, report executions etc.

  archive,
  viewsAsTables = FALSE,
  override = TRUE,
  wait = TRUE
)

wait

Wait for backup task completion. Default is TRUE.
