Uploading a File for UC4 Processing


How do I upload a file to be processed in UC4?


UC4 is a job scheduling application that is used to automate Banner jobs, scripts, and many other processes. Users may find the need to provide a file to be processed by a UC4 job or process flow. A procedure has been developed for user file submission for UC4 processing.

As a preliminary step,  WinSCP will need to be installed and the university VPN will need to be connected. Both software packages are available on Software Center on university devices. 


Note: Please make sure that you are connected to VPN
