Activate Incident Management - Core plugin

Incident Management - Core plugin (com.snc.incident_management) is a new incident state model that includes demo data and activates related plugins in case the plugins are not already active.

About this task

Incident Management - Core (com.snc.incident_management) is available by default in new instances but it is not available on upgrade. Customers upgrading from Geneva or earlier versions must request the plugin. For more information, see KB0564465.
Note: If the new state model is installed on upgraded instances, then ensure that the old states are mapped to the new ones. The mapping is especially important if you have made customizations, implemented workflows, added script includes, and added business rules.
