Can't login to kibana using x-pack

I have ES 5.6, kibana 5.6 and x-pack 5.6.

I was just trying out x-pack. i changed the password of ‘elastic’ user. i can login using curl, so username and password is correct. However in kibana when i click ‘login’ the page just refreshes and nothing happens. Below is the screen shot, any idea what is happening:

Elasticsearch.yml has :

http.cors.enabled: true

http.cors.allow-origin: “*”
kibana.yml has:

elasticsearch.username: “kibana”

elasticsearch.password: <the_password>

What do the Kibana logs say?

@Kaanishk No logs on terminal, but browser consol is like:

Unknown provider: $routeProvider <- $route <- biPluginBrandingController
I am using a custom plugin with x-pack and looks like they are conflicting. The code in my plugin that coflicts with x-pack is the registring to chromeNavControlsRegistry, ie:
function discoverControlProvider() {

return {

name: ‘bi_plugin_branding’,

order: 1001,



Is there anything wrong with the way is register the bi plugin?

@Kaanishk below code won’t work either:

name: ‘bi_plugin_branding’,

order: 1001,
