How to setup atlassian-cli 9.2 to use netrc




This is something that used to work with 8.8.0, but now with 9,2,0, I get the following error:

Parameter error: This function requires a non-blank value for parameter password


I have the user name and password in my .netrc file, so I thought the command line client would pick it up? I didn't build both versions, so maybe there was an option to add when building the jar?
