Convey Information on a Flow

When you create an Information Flow connector between two elements, Enterprise Architect automatically prompts you to specify which Information Items or classifiers are conveyed on this flow. You can ignore the prompt and add the information items later, or - if you have not realized the information flow with its existing information items - you can change and/or add to the information items conveyed.
