Create sequence diagrams from existing interaction references

You can populate an interaction reference in an interaction overview diagram by using the Palette to add UML elements. You can create a sequence diagram from the interaction reference to provide further detail about the interaction.

Before you begin

You must have an inline sequence diagram that contains at least one element.


In the Project Explorer view, right-click the interaction reference; then click Add Diagram > Sequence Diagram. You can select any diagram type from the menu.


The new diagram opens in the diagram editor populated with the UML elements from the interaction reference. Changes that you make in either the interaction reference or the diagram are reflected in both.
