Interfaces

About interfaces

Interfaces serve as parent objects from which other objects can inherit.

For example, Lockable is an interface because both Issue and PullRequest objects can be locked. An interface has its own list of named fields that are shared by implementing objects.

For more information, see "Implementation."
