MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual Including MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0

18.9.2 Group Replication Limitations

The following known limitations exist for Group Replication. Note that the limitations and issues described for multi-primary mode groups can also apply in single-primary mode clusters during a failover event, while the newly elected primary flushes out its applier queue from the old primary.

Tip

Group Replication is built on GTID based replication, therefore you should also be aware of Section 17.1.3.6, “Restrictions on Replication with GTIDs”.
