Profile diagram
For information about extensibility in Modeler, see Overview of extensibility through profiles, stereotypes and tag definitions.
A Profile Diagram allows you to define the Stereotypes and Tag Definitions in a profile. Through the Profile Diagram you can perform the following operations:
Create Packages, Stereotypes, and Tag Definitions.
Define valid Model Item Types for a Stereotype.
Define target Model Item Types and Stereotypes for reference Tag Definitions.
Define Stereotype inheritance.
You can create a Profile Diagram through the context menu of a Package: right-click the Package, point to New, point to UML, point to Profiles, and then click Profile Diagram.
The following sections provide information about how a Profile Diagram is used in the model. For more information about an item, property or model part, click it.
