Hello All, I've recently started to use UML again (previous company didn't like it) and I am stuck on how to best represent the following scenario. Actors: User Admin Use Cases: View User Details View Group Details Admin User Details Admin Group Details A 'User' can View User Details & View Group Details An 'Admin' can do all of them. The problem is that both Admin options are accessible from their respective View options. How can I show that Admin can do these extra use cases? Do I just use seperate diagrams or is there a good notation for this?    More>>

Hello All,


I've recently started to use UML again (previous company didn't like it) and I am stuck on how to best represent the following scenario.


Actors:

User

Admin


Use Cases:

View User Details

View Group Details

Admin User Details

Admin Group Details


A 'User' can View User Details & View Group Details

An 'Admin' can do all of them.


The problem is that both Admin options are accessible from their respective View options. How can I show that Admin can do these extra use cases? Do I just use seperate diagrams or is there a good notation for this?


Many Thanks


Mike

Can't you just draw a line at a time from User to the View use cases and from Admin to all the use cases?
