<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Config:etc/system_file.xsd">
    <section id="deliveryNotification" translate="label" type="text" sortOrder="300" showInDefault="1" showInWebsite="1" showInStore="1">
        <label>Shipping Notifications</label>


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Acl/etc/acl.xsd">
        <resource id="Magento_Backend::admin">
            <resource id="Magento_Backend::stores">
                <resource id="Magento_Backend::stores_settings">
                    <resource id="Magento_Config::config">
                        <resource id="Lukas_DeliveryNotification::lukas_deliveryNotification" title="Delivery Notification" />

But it does not get added, what is the problem?

First, verify your system.xml file is in etc/adminhtml folder

Second, notice resource parameter is missing in your code (not sure, if it's really required, but it seems so). Take a look at this references

  • Very strange, system.xml is in correct pathway Lukas\DeliveryNotification\etc\adminhtml\system.xml I added the resource aswell, cleaned cache. Still no result

    Seems that adding <group> to <section> fixes it
