I'm using below code in adminhtml/menu.xml to show menu/sub-menu in admin. I'm able to see menu Lapisbard in admin but sub-menu Store Locations is not visible when I click on menu named Lapisbard.

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../Backend/etc/menu.xsd">
        <add id="lapisbard::base" title="Lapisbard" module="Lapisbard_StoreLocator" sortOrder="90" resource="Lapisbard_StoreLocator::storelocator" />
        <add id="lapisbard_storelocator::locations" title="Store Locations" module="Lapisbard_StoreLocator" sortOrder="10" parent="lapisbard::base" action="lapisbard_storelocator/locations/" resource="Lapisbard_StoreLocator::locations"/>

If I'm adding it in content section using parent="Magento_Backend::content" it's working fine there.

    <add id="Lapisbard_StoreLocator::storelocator" title="Lapisbard" module="Lapisbard_StoreLocator" sortOrder="90" parent="Magento_Backend::content" resource="Lapisbard_StoreLocator::storelocator" />
    <add id="Lapisbard_StoreLocator::locations" title="Store Locations" module="Lapisbard_StoreLocator" sortOrder="10" parent="Lapisbard_StoreLocator::storelocator" action="blog/post" resource="Lapisbard_StoreLocator::locations"/>

I think you're missing the acl here.

        <add id="Company_Module::dashboard" title="Dashboard1" module="Company_Module" sortOrder="12" resource="Company_Module::dashboard"/>
        <add id="Company_Module::subdashboard" title="Subdashboard" module="Company_Module" sortOrder="12" action="company/dashboard" resource="Company_Module::dashboard" parent="Company_Module::dashboard"/>

and acl like:

            <resource id="Magento_Backend::admin">
                <resource id="Company_Module::dashboard" title="Dashboard" sortOrder="12" />

Basically, your problem lies in the permissions. If you inherit it from Backend, you are using the Backend's permissions, and you are fine. But if you want to have submenu, you need your own acl.

js and css permission issue may cause this.

please give proper permission to the folder structure.

clear cache after permission.

run php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy if you found js or css missing and than give proper permission once again.

I hope this will help you.

  • tried depoying content as well as giving proper permission. Is it compulsory to create ACL in Magento2?. It is affecting sub-menu of other module also. – amitshree Jan 4 '16 at 12:25
  • check proper permission also. – Denish Vachhani Jan 4 '16 at 12:26
