What is a UML diagram?

Unified modeling language (UML) diagrams describe the structure of a system, the objects within the system, and how they all behave. While you’ll find many types of UML diagrams, they fall into two broad categories: structural diagrams and behavioral diagrams.

How to create a UML diagram

  1. Enable the UML shape library

    Open the shape manager in Lucidchart and select the UML library, which includes all the UML shapes, symbols, and notation.

  2. Use sequence markup to automate the process

    Speed up the process of creating your UML diagram. Under the UML Sequence category in the toolbar, click “Use Markup,” type your markup, and click “Build.”

  3. Identify and add UML components

    Drag and drop shapes onto your blank canvas to start work on your UML diagram. Connect these shapes using arrows to indicate relationships and flows.

  4. Add text to your UML diagram

    Label and arrange your use cases, flows, and actors to clearly communicate their purpose.

  5. Publish and share

    Share your UML diagram with other teams or stakeholders. Embed your diagram in a wiki, send it in an email, or share it with integrations like Jira, Confluence, and Slack.
