  • Post your code for menu.xml and provide path where you have created it. – anonymous Jun 22 '18 at 7:24
  • path menu.xml [ Magento2Root/app/code/Cloudways/Adminmenu/menu.xml ] and code show my screen shot – shohel hussain Jun 22 '18 at 12:43

Make sure that your module.xml is in the path - Magento2Root/app/code/Cloudways/Adminmenu/etc and menu.xml is in the path - Magento2Root/app/code/Cloudways/Adminmenu/etc/adminhtml

If this doesn't help then edit your question and add content of all the 3 files so that People can answer that.

Please verify that the path of menu.xml should be app/code/Cloudways/Adminmenu/etc/adminhtml/menu.xml.

Apart from that, if you are checking the menu item from a user with restricted permission role, then you must specify acl.xml in your module under app/code/Cloudways/Adminmenu/etc/acl.xml.

Edit: If you are having trouble in finding the cause of issue, then retry with the steps below:

Step 1: Create app/code/Stack/Adminmenu/registration.php and put the following content


Step 2: Create app/code/Stack/Adminmenu/etc/module.xml and put the following code

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="Stack_Adminmenu" setup_version="0.1.0">

Step 3: Create app/code/Stack/Adminmenu/etc/adminhtml/menu.xml and put the following code

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../Backend/etc/menu.xsd">
        <add id="Stack_Adminmenu::first_level_demo"
             title="Admin Menu"
        <add id="Stack_Adminmenu::second_level_demo"
             title="Sub Menu"

Remember to define and create the controller class for the action where you are redirecting on clicking on the menu item.

You have to create ACL acl.xml

  • app/code/Cloudways/Adminmenu/etc/acl.xml

Also menu.xml should be under

  • app/code/Cloudways/Adminmenu/etc/adminhtml/menu.xml
