Description (last modified by dkocher)

The password for one of my SFTP accounts is stored in a locked keychain. (In Keychain Access, it has "Lock after 1 minute of inactivity" selected.)

So I expect that the first time I connect to the site, I will be asked to unlock the Keychain so that Cyberduck can fetch the password.

However, my problem is that every time I upload a file, I'm presented with a dialog

Cyberduck wants to use your confidential information stored in "" in your keychain.  Do you want to allow access to this item?  Always Allow / Deny / Allow.

Not only that, but "Transfers" window of Cyberduck, I see that "Login successful" has already been reported.

  • First problem: Why am I being asked to re-fetch my password from the keychain?
  • Second problem: How can login be successful if the password hasn't been fetched?

I click "Allow". The upload proceeds. But next time I attempt the same operation, I the same thing happens.

What I would like to happen:

I'm asked for my keychain password once, Cyberduck fetches the SFTP password, and the password is internally maintained for as long as the session is open, and I am never prompted for the password again.

Version 3.2.1 build 4923 (though it's been this way for a long time through many versions.)
