Save site as template option in sharepoint

When you want to replicate a site that you have already created and for this, you have to save site as template.  For this, you go on Site setting and then move to Site action but you did not find the option “Save site as template” option.  

There are several reasons behind the missing of "save site as template" option, to get this option check options below mention. 

Custom script is not allowed on tenant 
On the new office 365 tenants or we say in Modern SharePoint experience by default the custom scripting is not allowed on the tenant. If custom script is not allowed on your tenant some features will not work on your tenants. In common terms you may not able to save site as template, options to create web part page will not appear on, some web parts (like media and content editor) will also not there. 

How to enable the Custom script on tenant. 
1   On Office 365 admin center, move to the SharePoint admin center. 
2   SharePoint admin centerin left panel click on Setting. 
3   Click on the Classic setting pages. 

4  In Custom script section select both the options.   
   Allow users to run custom script on personal sites. 
   Allow users to run custom script on self-service created sites. 

5 Click on OK. 
Setting changes take up to 24 hours to reflects. We can use the power shell script to allow custom script and changes appear immediately.

SharePoint Server Publishing Feature is Enabled 

SharePoint server publishing can also be the reason behind the missing of save as template option, if the SharePoint server publishing feature is enabled on your site then this feature will disable the “save site as template” option.  

To check this option, move to Site Setting ->  Site Actions -> Manage site features then check for the 
SharePoint server publishing option.  

In Modern SharePoint sites “save site as template” is missing. 

save site as template option missing in SharePoint online, to solve this problem enable the custom scripting and check the publishing feature. After that you check the  Site setting and move to the Site Actions but still the option to “save site as template” does not appear, in modern sites, the option is not displayed in site actions but you can access the save site as template by appending this after site URL 
/_layouts/15/savetempl.aspx”.  After appending this your URL will look like this https://your-domain/sites/your-site-name/_layouts/15/savetmpl.aspx .  when you hit this URL after putting your domain and site name, save as site template page will appear.
