Terminology

By default, Structurizr uses the terminology defined by the C4 model when rendering elements on diagrams. Specifically, the following terminology is used:

  • Enterprise
  • Person
  • Software System
  • Container
  • Component
  • Code
  • Deployment Node
  • Code
  • Relationship

This terminology can be changed via both the client libraries and the browser-based workspace editor, providing a way for the terminology on diagrams to be modified (e.g. language translations).
