Hi @mrleetyler ,

 

By default, only System Administrator and Customizers have access to create entities. I would suggest to get in touch with them to get the proper roles assigned. 

Further more, make sure the security role assigned with you has Create privilege on 'Entity' shown as follow.

But it is not sufficient to just have privileges on the Entity. When you create an Entity, the system will also create Fields, Views and Relationships. The simplest solution is have your user either added to the OOB System Customizer role, or System Administrator role.


Hope this helps.
