What are the steps to get add a UV map assigned to an obj. file in Maya 2014 using the 1.20 plugin...it works in Mental Ray but I can't find a way in Octane!

hmm, the 1.20 plugin was released almost 4 years ago, to be honest I don't remember at all if it was working the same way as now.
I found this topic : viewtopic.php?f=28&t=33685

But adding an UV map is not done with the plugin, it's done with builtin Maya tools, look in Polygons/UV menu to apply any projection to UVs.

Or if you want to use a texture projection (spherical, box , ...) but then you are not using the UVs but projecting the texture,
in the current plugin it's done by adding a projection node in the imageTexture node, don't know if it was supported at this time.
