Activate the system user guide on an upgraded instance

The User Guide (com.glide.user_guide) plugin is active by default for all new instances, but must be activated by a system administrator on upgraded instances.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

Before you activate the User Guide plugin on an upgraded instance, you must also activate the UI16 (com.glide.ui.ui16) plugin. Use this procedure to activate each plugin.


  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.

    Some plugins include demo data—sample records that are designed to illustrate plugin features for common use cases. Loading demo data is a good policy when you first activate the plugin on a development or test instance.

    You can also load demo data after the plugin is activated by clicking the Load Demo Data Only related link on the System Plugin form.

  5. Click Activate.
