In this post I will try to help you fix error like “The input device is not a TTY”.
Problem and solution
This error will occur if you are trying to run docker container using -it option, which means that you want to run docker container for interactive processes (like a shell).
First time I have encountered this problem when I was trying to run docker container from Jenkins pipeline.
In case when you would like to run docker container from command line and that use shell/bash you need to use -it option like below:
docker run -it my_docker_image
In case when you are running docker container through remote process you have to remove -it options:
docker run my_docker_image
Execute command in docker container
The same approach you must apply when you would like to execute command in docker container. Let’s image situation when you have run docker-compose.yml file with set of services and you would like to execute command inside container. Than you must use -T option:
docker-compose exec -T <container_name> sh -c "/scripts/run.sh"
