Create a model.

model = systemcomposer.createModel("archModel",true);

Create a profile with a stereotype and properties, open the Profile Editor, then apply the profile to the model.

profile = systemcomposer.profile.Profile.createProfile("LatencyProfile");
latencybase = profile.addStereotype("LatencyBase");

Save the profile and load the profile. In this example, profileNew is equal to profile.

profileNew = systemcomposer.loadProfile("LatencyProfile");

Input Arguments

TermDefinitionApplicationMore Information

A stereotype is a custom extension of the modeling language. Stereotypes provide a mechanism to extend the architecture language elements by adding domain-specific metadata.

Apply stereotypes to model elements such as root-level architecture, component architecture, connectors, ports, data interfaces, value types, functions, requirements, and links. Functions only apply to software architectures. You must have a Requirements Toolbox™ license to apply stereotypes to requirements and links. A model element can have multiple stereotypes. Stereotypes provide model elements with a common set of property fields, such as mass, cost, and power.

Extend Architectural Design Using Stereotypes

A property is a field in a stereotype. You can specify property values for each element to which the stereotype is applied.

Use properties to store quantitative characteristics, such as weight or speed, that are associated with a model element. Properties can also be descriptive or represent a status. You can view and edit the properties of each element in the architecture model using the Property Inspector.


A profile is a package of stereotypes that you can use to create a self-consistent domain of element types.

Author profiles and apply profiles to a model using the Profile Editor. You can store stereotypes for a project in one or several profiles. When you save profiles, they are stored in XML files.
