I have Drupal 8 minimal installation profile and it does not seem to have provided super user status to the first admin account created during the installation process.

How do I enable it?

  • Welcome to drupal.stackexchange, what is your Drupal version? do you looked at users tables on your database? is there any user there? – Yuseferi Mar 22 '17 at 12:48
  • Thank you. Drupal 8 (minimal install). Yes, there are two entries (uid,uuid,langcode): 0,c87da1b7-26f7-415c-88cb-ed625697cd24,en 1,622c8cd9-ab33-4953-9904-1b6fceb1dc6d,en. But user__roles table is empty – qwaz Mar 22 '17 at 13:14

    If I were you, I would use normal/regular installation. Minimal installation is just a big headache. You're better off using normal/regular and then uninstall the modules you do not want. – No Sssweat Mar 22 '17 at 23:22

User 1 doesn't need any roles to have super user status. User 1 is exempted from the permissions system entirely. So, they automatically have all permissions, regardless of roles they may or may not have.

    Yes. Think of user 1 as 'root' in linux. But also, do not delete user 0, or user 1. – Kevin Mar 22 '17 at 13:38
