Persona Scenario

A persona scenario describes in which situation, why and how a persona (user) will interact with the future system. The description of the scenario is usually a narrated story, which contains several steps and interactions of the user – and is described from the perspective of the persona, if necessary. A scenario includes the persona’s personal background, desired results, and procedures.

Persona scenario

You can enter persona scenarios manually using a dialog or model them in a use case diagram. You can recognize a persona scenario in the system by this icon:


The stereotype of a persona scenario is <<PersonaScenario>>. You need the stereotype if you want to create document templates, queries, forms, or if you are searching for a persona scenario in the tool. In the Stereotypes window, you can find the PersonaScenario stereotype under DomainElement. Here you can create additional sub stereotypes or user-defined properties. Properties do not have to be created separately for each sub stereotype, since the properties are inherited from the main stereotype.
