Activate Compliance UCF

The GRC: UCF Import (com.snc.ucf_import_add_on) plugin was deprecated and replaced by the new GRC: Compliance UCF (com.sn_comp_ucf) plugin, as an add-on to the GRC: Policy and Compliance Management application. This plugin is required to import content from the UCF-CCH.

About this task

This plugin includes demo data and activates related plugins if they are not already active.


  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 are not 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.
