    To add a service interface with a specified name to a native (unmapped) data dictionary, use the addServiceInterface function. For an example that shows more of the workflow for related functions, see Create Architectural Data Object and Use It to Configure Architectural Data.

    dictName = "MyInterfaces.sldd";
    archDataObj =;
    serviceInterfObj = addServiceInterface(archDataObj,"ServiceInterface1")
    serviceInterfObj = 
      ServiceInterface with properties:
               Name: 'ServiceInterface1'
        Description: ''
           Elements: [0×0 Simulink.dictionary.archdata.FunctionElement]
              Owner: [1×1 Simulink.dictionary.ArchitecturalData]
