After you set up the database replication and configure the Geo nodes, use your closest GitLab site as you would do with the primary one.
Example of the output you will see when pushing to a secondary site:
$ git push remote: remote: This request to a Geo secondary node will be forwarded to the remote: Geo primary node: remote: remote: ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/user/repo.git remote: Everything up-to-date
user:password@URL. Instead, you can use a
.netrcfile for Unix-like operating systems or
_netrcfor Windows. In that case, the credentials will be stored as a plain text. If you’re looking for a more secure way to store credentials, you can use Git Credential Storage.
