Can't log into gitlab-webservice-default with initialRootPassword

I feel like I am missing something obvious. I’ve installed Gitlab via the latest helm chart into my local k8s cluster. I’m exposing gitlab-webservice-default via a gateway/virtualservice through istio and it displays the login page correctly. I tried to follow the initial login section as seen here: Deploy the GitLab Helm chart | GitLab

It is not working for me. I’ve tried it with the default initialRootPassword and also with my own supplied secret. Both time using the username ‘root’

Is this the correct password to login or am I missing something?

Thanks for any pointers.
