Administrators can activate the Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) plugin [com.snc.governance], and doing so automatically installs the Core GRC Components [com.snc.governance_core] plugin. Additional plugins are activated as needed. This plugin provides demonstration data.

About this task

Note: The Core GRC Components [com.snc.governance_core] plugin includes components used by the Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) [com.snc.governance] plugin, the GRC: Risk plugin [com.sn_risk], and the Security Incident Response GRC support plugin [com.snc.security_incident.grc] plugin. These components include GRC Risks, Risk Criteria, Remediation Tasks, Policies, Standards, and Standard Operating Procedures. The Core GRC Components plugin does not include support for Authority Document management, Unified Compliance Framework (UCF) integration, Control management, Control testing, or Auditing Activities.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to System Definition > Plugins.
  2. Find and click the plugin name.
  3. On the System Plugin form, review the plugin details and then click the Activate/Upgrade related link.

    If the plugin depends on other plugins, these plugins are listed along with their activation status.

    If the plugin has optional features that are not functional because other plugins are inactive, those plugins are listed. A warning states that some files will not be installed. If you want the optional features to be installed, cancel this activation, activate the necessary plugins, and then return to activating the plugin.

  4. (Optional) If available, select the Load demo data check box.
