Plugin doesnt appear among controller types

At the bottom of my .cpp file I have

// make the controller available to the library loader
PLUGINLIB_EXPORT_CLASS(hiqp::ROSKinematicsController, controller_interface::ControllerBase)

but when I run

rosservice call /controller_manager/list_controller_types

the ROSKinematicsController does not appear.

Shall this be sufficient for loading a controller as a plugin, or have I forgotten something?

Hi neckutrek,

Did you also provide a Plugin File Description and register it with the ROS package system?

If you carefully follow all the steps as described on the pluginlib wiki, it should work.
