Hello

I noticed the basic flow in the provided use cases only mention "normal" (successful) flows, there are no failed scenarios or alternative successful flows (if any).

Want to make sure, do I need to cater the failed scenarios in my sequence diagrams?

My instinct tells me I should. ...

Hei.
I did not include failed-scenarios in my assignment. I read in other threads that there were more people who did not include failed scenarios too.

Thanks for your input.

After looking at my existing sequence diagrams, catering those failed scenarios may clutter the intended flow (eg too much arrows haha).

I may just use conditions to indicate when such (successful) action/flow occurs.
