Define Stereotype Tagged Values

You can define additional meta-information for a stereotype by adding various types of Tagged Value, which you identify as attributes of the Stereotype element. The simplest Tagged Values are those for which you type plain text into the 'Value' field.

For more complex Tagged Values, such as enumerations and Structured Tagged Values, see these topics:

  • Add An Enumeration to a Stereotype
