I've installed Magento 2 and under

System -> Data Transfer

there are no options. Do I have to enable them somehow?

First, you have to make sure the admin user has access to Role Resources, System → Data Transfer with all the options checked or selected. Otherwise, the options will not be listed on the admin menu in the admin page.

  • Thanks for the reply, the user has full access

  • I assume there is no way to disable the options right? I've just realised that the theme i'm using has an import demo function, so it's probably overwriting it.

  • Yeah there's a way to disable it. Navigate from System → Permissions→ User Roles→ Role{Administrators}→ Role Resources→ Resource Access
