Policy and Compliance UCF upgrade instructions

Users require a separate subscription to the Network Frontiers Unified Compliance Framework Common Controls Hub (UCF-CCH) to download content from the UCF-CCH. Activate the Compliance UCF plugin (com.sn_comp_ucf) plugin and submit a request on the ServiceNow® HI Service Portal to validate the GRC subscription and set up a UCF-CCH account.

Before you begin

Note: A subscription to Network Frontiers UCF-CCH is not required for using the GRC Policy & Compliance application.
Network Frontiers has released a new method for allowing authenticated users to download content from the UCF Common Controls Hub (CCH) website. The UCF-CCH integration APIs are different from those of the previous XML-based UCF content library and requires an updated ServiceNow® UCF plugin for ServiceNow® GRC integration. Verification of the UCF CCH account is necessary before users can configure shared lists of authority documents and download them to their ServiceNow® instance.
Note: If your GRC entitlement date is before December 1, 2016, you are entitled to a free UCF CCH account for the period of December 1, 2016 through November 30, 2018. For customers on Helsinki (Patch 7 and above), or Istanbul and whose effective GRC entitlement date start on Dec 1, 2016 or after, you need to sign up for a UCF CCH account and customize your basic subscription to include API Access. For more information about establishing a UCF CCH account, see Unified Compliance.
