Interface Designer Overview

Interface Editor

The Interface Editor is a separate side canvas from the main modeling canvas. After adding and naming an interface in the Default Audience lane or a custom Audience lane of the main modeling canvas, press Shift+Enter, or right-click and choose Edit from the context menu. You can rename an interface or add a description in the Details tab. You can choose the Interface type and configure the interface in the Interface Designer tab.

Due to its graphical nature, the Interface Editor is entirely mouse-driven. Keyboard shortcuts are not available. You can resize the interface in the designer. The interface model object cannot be resized in the main canvas.

When you are done creating an interface, click X to exit the Interface Designer and return to your event model canvas.

Interface Types

The oNote Interface Designer provides the following types of interfaces for your event modeling:


Default interface type. Allows a placeholder for an interface in your model. You can switch its type when you are ready to design and refine your interface model.


Model your RESTful API interface.


Create an interface object and insert actual HTML elements.


Model a representation of an automated job process, including any external systems. A cog icon is automatically added.


Include a Figma wireframe within an interface in your model.
