Having a problem reading a user input in SourceTree from precommit shell script hook

I am using SourceTree 1.6. We are using precommit shell script GIT hook. In the hook we are asking the developer to input a value from keyboard and then that value is captured in a variable and used further. When I do a commit using 'git commit' command from GIT Bash Tool it stops for the user input , after the user enters the value the script is completed successfully. But when we do a commit from SourceTree, it seems the script waits for the input but I don't see the place where to provide the input. Can you please help ?

 

My script is something like this:

#!/bin/sh

exec < /dev/tty

read -p 'path : ' user_entry
echo $user_entry

exit 0

Hi Amit,

SourceTree 1.6 is no longer a supported version; it's available for download only for those that need it as a fallback for a specific reason. That said, interactive scripting triggered by commits isn't supported within the Sourcetree UI.
