In developer edition new Lightning features are available, I am able to create new Lightning Application, Component etc. but 'Lightning Component Tabs' section isn't available.

As mentioned in https://developer.salesforce.com/trailhead/lightning_components/lightning_components_creating trailhead when I goto Setup>Create>Tabs there I cannot see section for creating new lightning components.

Any idea how to make it available?Missing Lightning Component Section

Are you going to lightning view at least one time? Also problem might be that you don't have any lightning components. Try to create few components at first. enter image description here

  • Hi..Yes lightning view is enabled in my dev org also I have created few components with '<aura:component implements="force:appHostable">' markup and still unable to get lightning component tabs section. Oct 21, 2015 at 9:44

    Do you add a domain for your org? Oct 21, 2015 at 9:51

  • @Yaroslav_Maksymenko Thanks so much for this. I just migrated code to a new org to test out Salesforce DX and couldn't for the life of me figure out why my lightning component tabs weren't showing. You'd think they'd give some sort of indication to the problem here. Jul 10, 2017 at 8:23
