I have several site on Drupal 8.5 where I don’t see the "taxonomy term" option in view. So I can’t create a view that lists taxonomy terms of a vocabulary.

See the first screen shot to see the problem.

Why I don’t see this option ? Is there something to install or enable ? I’ve checked a lot of things and I still don’t understand.

Below, there is a second screen shot of an other Drupal where I have this really useful field.

Finally, this is what I would like to add in fields and Filter in view.

  • But you have all relevant taxonomy modules enabled, do you? – leymannx May 29 '18 at 8:56
  • @leymannx I have taxonomy module enabled on both websites. Is there an other module I need ? – Sébastien Gicquel May 29 '18 at 9:45
  • No that should be just fine. Do you also have all relevant taxonomy permissions granted? – leymannx May 29 '18 at 9:53
  • @leymannx Permissions seems to be correctly configured. I’ve installed a clean Drupal with composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project:8.x-dev drupal --stability dev --no-interactionand I see the same thing. The option in the select list are not the same as before (category : global or taxonomy term). Now I have Comment statistics, Content, Content Revision, File Usage, Global, Search. – Sébastien Gicquel May 29 '18 at 10:22
  • So, when you go to /admin/structure/views/add you can't select Taxonomy terms under VIEW SETTINGS? – leymannx May 29 '18 at 10:38

All you have to do is to choose "Taxonomy terms" under VIEW SETTINGS when you add a new view on MYSITE/admin/structure/views/add.

  • Just curious if your master view setting is "content", is it possible to add a, say block display, that uses taxonomy term as the content to show? – awm Jul 1 '19 at 18:43
