Now I can create only simple role which can be easily edited and deleted. I need a role for root user (user ID 1) for some other modules that requires selecting a role.

Now installing minimal profile of Drupal my root user is roleless. Don't know how to call it.

In overall I need something that the root user would be undeletable/uneditable by any other admin who has power to edit users and permissions and roles.

  • make installation with 'standard' profile.

Navigate to /admin/config/people/accounts#edit-admin-role and select from the list which role should be treated as "Admin role".
