Hi,

you need to declare a note like this:

@startuml
component a {
}
component b {
}
a->b:intertact

note as N1
Your note text
end note

N1 .. a
N1 .. b

Best Regards,

Thank you! Can I do something similar in sequences?
I mean to attach same note to several events

Hi,

not that I could think of. In sequence diagrams you need to add your note each time you want to put it somewhere. Links are IMHO note possible.

BTW, in component diagram, can the same (as proposed by Michael) be implemented the way that it is also achieved in the simpler manner i originally proposed?
I have an automated component diagram generator (from JSON model) and the method, proposed by Michael looks complex in realization in my specific case.
