When you place an element on a diagram, you can display it with a number of compartments that reveal not only the attributes and operations of the element, but also several other properties such as tags, constraints and tests.

Tags Compartment

Detail: The tags compartment lists all Tagged Values for an element as entered in the Tagged Values window.

The fully-qualified option shows only those Tagged Values that were created in Enterprise Architect release 7.1 or later; it does not expand Tagged Values created in earlier releases.

Tagged Values

Responsibilities Compartment

Detail: The responsibilities compartment shows a list of responsibilities as entered on the 'Requirements' page of the element 'Properties' dialog.


Constraints Compartment

Detail: The Constraints compartment shows a list of element constraints as entered in the 'Constraints' page of the element 'Properties' dialog.



  • To set the display of each of the various compartments, see the Feature Visibility topic; the display of the compartments is also controlled through the diagram properties, on the 'Elements' tab - the specific element settings take precedence over the more general diagram settings
