Analysis Stereotypes

Enterprise Architect provides some built in stereotypes that you can assign to an element during analysis. The effect of each of these stereotypes is to display a different icon from the normal element icon, giving a visual key to the element's purpose. The main types of inbuilt icons for elements created using the stereotypes include:

Boundary - for a system boundary (for example, a Login screen)
Control - to specify an element is a controller of some process (as in the Model-View-Controller pattern)
Entity - the element is a persistent or data element
 

The elements created using these stereotypes are illustrated in the Robustness diagram below. Also see the Business Modeling elements, used in Business Modeling and Business Interaction diagrams.
