Kibana not working after setting up minimal security

I have the below setup for Elasticsearch
image

I have the below setup for Kibana
server.host: "0.0.0.0"
Elasticsearch.username: "kibana_system"
Elasticsearch.logQueries: true
logging.dest: D:\Elastic\kibana-7.17.0\Logs\stdout
logging.verbose: true

I have run "Elasticsearch-setup-passwords auto" (backed up the passwords to a notepad)
Started Elasticsearch service and logged in using "elastic" and the provided password.
Elasticsearch works

I then ran the following:
"kibana-keystore create"
"kibana-keystore add Elasticsearch.password" (entered kibana_system password provided by the password setup)
started Kibana service.
I get the following with no login prompt. Just blank.

Hello,

Can you try to access Kibana in incognito window? @azasypkin for further help.

Thanks,

Hi @wes.campbell ,

What do you see in Kibana logs? Also is capital E letter in Elasticsearch.password and other Elasticsearch related settings a typo in a message or this is what you used in configuration? All settings should be in a lower case.

Best,
Oleg

I ran the command again. But, this time using "kibana-keystore add Elasticsearch" (The "e" is lowercase but for some reason it is showing here as "E"). Same issue.
The Elasticsearch settings is what I currently have in the config.

Okay, so what do you have in Kibana logs (all logs starting from the moment when you start Kibana)?

The following are the only "warning" logs. All others are either "debug" or "info"

If you are not yet using the new logging configuration, the log format will change upon upgrade to 8.0.

The following are the only "warning" logs. All others are either "debug" or "info"

Yeah, it'd be great to see the full log, we don't need DEBUG logs, but we need logs indicating Kibana could or couldn't connect to Elasticsearch, these have INFO level.

Also have you tried other browsers? Do you see any errors in the browser's Dev Tools console?

I have been getting that screen when opening kibana locally on the server. When I load the site remotely I get the login prompt and the credentials work. I should have checked that initially. Sorry for wasting you're time.

No worries, glad you've sorted it out!
