Run Linux command asking input or password in background

When we run a Linux command in background such as
scp test.sql &
or  ignore the hangup signal
nohup scp test.sql &
We can not input  password.
To make an input for  background job, First we use
scp test.sql
input password, then type Ctrl +Z to suspend the job
then type
to put it in background.
To list all process
ps aux
To list process containing scp and find process id
ps aux |grep scp
To kill a process
kill processid
To force to kill, this is strong:
kill -9 processid
