The following bug has been logged on the website: Bug reference: 16206 Logged by: Joachim Jablon Email address: (redacted) PostgreSQL version: 12.1 Operating system: All Description: Documentation for PGDATABASE says: > PGDATABASE behaves the same as the dbname connection parameter. Documentation for dbname says: > The database name. Defaults to be the same as the user name. In certain contexts, the value is checked for extended formats; see Section 33.1.1 for more details on those. But PGDATABASE is not checked for extended formats. This should be explicitly said in the documentation. I believe a simple sentence like: > PGDATABASE behaves the same as the dbname connection parameter but the value is not checked for extended format. might be enough.
