fly set-pipeline after auth prompt loses keystrokes during confirmation prompt #2780

Using fly 3.14.1, and some previous versions we think, we notice that keystrokes seem to be lost by the fly app.


  • fly logout
  • fly sp
  • authenticate using browser
  • It shows a diff of changes to pipeline, and then asks apply configuration? [yN]:
  • type some characters


  • each and every character is echoed on command line and functions


  • it seems like every other character is swallowed, or one character out of several is accepted


In the example below, we typed 123456789123456789123456789 at the prompt (very rapidly, by swiping across the keys). Only a few of those characters were echoed to the screen.

→ fly -t prod set-pipeline -p [...] -c [...] -l [...]
could not find a valid token.

I noticed today it's not just the "apply configuration" prompt. It also happens when fly intercept requires a login, so it appears to be related to the login.

We are also experiencing this. It has to do with login because it's happens when you issue a cmd then get redirected to login and back to your cmd.
