when we use movegroup interface we can execute a plan using


and in python movegroup intertace we use:

group = moveit_commander.MoveGroupCommander(group_name)
plan = group.go(wait=True)
group.execute(plan, wait=True).

how about when we use motion planning interface?

The Motion Planning API tutorial does not answer this, because it stops at visualizing the trajectory.

As commented in this question, you can still use the move_group's execute function with your own plan, for example like this:

// [(continued from the tutorial)...]  
moveit_msgs::MotionPlanResponse response; 

// Construct a move_group plan from the planned trajectory
moveit::planning_interface::MoveGroupInterface::Plan myplan;
myplan.trajectory_ = response.trajectory; 

Otherwise, my understanding is that you can use the interface of your robot/motors, most commonly a JointTrajectoryController advertising a FollowJointTrajectoryAction that you send your trajectory to.
