A persona represents a real user group with the same goals, interests or wishes. They are based on behavioural patterns of real people and can be described very precisely by concrete character traits, personal values and goals.

Create persona

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

An overview of all personas with their scenarios is provided by the query

  • Personas with scenarios
Persona and its relationships

In a use case diagram can you with a Required relationship describe which requirements originate from which persona.


The stereotype of persona is <<Persona>>. You need the stereotype if you want to create document templates, queries, forms or search for a stakeholder in the tool. In the Stereotypes window you will find the Persona stereotype under DomainElement. The stereotype contains the sub stereotypes CustomerPersona, NegativePersona, PrimaryPersona, SecondaryPersona, ServedPersona and SupplementPersona. 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.
