Finding use cases and developing a use case diagram is one of the most powerful techniques for eliciting and specifies requirements. However, the notion of use case cannot handle the needs of indirect users correctly, because the use case only describes the direct interaction between the system and the actors. In this short position paper, we describe our ideas about extension of the concept of use case and use case description, to describe and analyze the needs of the indirect users.
