An interaction represents an action, process, or transaction between two objects. These interactions are often expressed as action verb phrases. The verb and inverse verb phrases can be added using the Property View and then displayed in the Diagram View. You can also create a mapping from the Interaction to a business process diagram.

You can set line style, line thickness, end point selection, and begin point selection for the Interaction in the Property View. You can also set global preferences for all the line display options in the Preferences.

The following diagram shows two interactions between the Business Entities. The “Shop in Store” interaction displays the verb and inverse verb phrases that were added in the Property View for that Interaction.
