I imported a gbxml file into OS and now I am not able to create thermal zones in the model. There is no option to create thermal zones.

After importing the gbXML, you would navigate to the Thermal Zones tab to create thermal zones and then to the Spaces tab to assign spaces to thermal zones.

Thanks, @macumber, I can do it this way what if there are 100 thermal zones in the model. I think in that case it will take a lot of time.

If you do this workflow often you could write an OpenStudio Measure to automate the process, you could run it on your model using Apply Measure Now.
