3.2 Channels and interfaces

An interface contains response and reference channels. In the model viewer, every row is a channel which can then be grouped into an interface.

Channels and interfaces are key when working with COUPLE. In fact, coupling and decoupling of components are only successful when the created interfaces contain the correct channels. For this reason, these steps are very important and must be performed accurately.

Creating interfaces

Multiple response and reference channels can be grouped to create an interface.

To create interfaces, complete the next steps:

  1. Right-click on the component in the library and select Edit.
  2. Go to the Channels & Interfaces tab.
  3. Select all the channels belonging to an interface.
  4. Right-click and select Create interface.
  5. The selected channels will be grouped into the interface

Renaming interfaces

You can rename existing interfaces.

To change the name of the interfaces, complete the next steps:

  1. Right-click on the component in the library and select Edit.
  2. Go to the Channels & Interfaces tab.
  3. Right-click on the interface and select Rename interface.
  4. Type the desired name and press Enter.

Adding channels to existing interfaces

You can add channels to an existing interface at a later stage.

To add channels to an already existing interface, complete the next steps:

  1. Right-click on the component in the library and select Edit.
  2. Go to the Channels & Interfaces tab.
  3. Select the channels you want to move.
  4. Drag and drop them into the correct interface.

You can also remove channels from an interface by dragging them into the Other interface group.
