[Swimlanes] Label with 'Represents' instead of 'Name'

Hi VP-Team,

i’ve the following initial situation:

  • activity diagram with several swimlanes
  • some actors
  • in each swimlane partition i’ve assigned an actor via the “Represents” selection
  • i’ve copied the content of the “Represents” field to the “Name” field…


  • Each swimlane partition is labeled with the value of the “Name” field

Feature requested:
An option to label the swimlane partition with the “Represents” field instead the “Name” field. This would save me a lot of copy work and the most important benefit: keeping swimlane partition labels in sync when renaming an actor.

Hi user,

Sorry for my late response to this issue. Now if you select model for “Represents” of swimlane, we follow the name of “Represents” model instead of “Name”.
