Points to Consider

Credential Management: Safely manage and store credentials in the .netrc file, ensuring that they are encrypted and protected from unauthorized access.

File Location: Ensure that the .netrc file is correctly placed in the home directory of the user running the CI/CD pipeline for proper authentication.

Permission Settings: Set appropriate permissions for the .netrc file to prevent unauthorized access or modifications to the stored credentials.
