/etc/apt/auth.conf format? Deleted by mistake...

Dec 3, 2018
We are running Proxmox VE Enterprise 5.2. During a recent upgrade of Puppet and its modules, I discovered that it deleted /etc/apt/auth.conf.

Does anyone have the format of this file handy as it pertains to Proxmox so that I can re-create it?
That worked, thanks! The format for anyone looking in the future is:

machine enterprise.proxmox.com
<space>login subscription-id
<space>password server-id
you can also wrote all in one line - this is in my case done with the puppet apt module (and subscription + pw in the node.yaml).
pve rewrote the file but it works.
