is it possible to build a standalone B2 that works in the background without the need to have a user loged in ?
What's the goal for this B2? Depending on what you're trying to accomplish an external integration may be better.
this B2 would update user's data upon their request, for example, if any user finds a difference between his data in sis and BB he can simply click one button and the B2 will fetch his data from sis database and push it to BB as a flat file.
Thanks for your response.
For this tool, I would avoid the Building Block approach and recommend an LTI application (for user validation), that leverages the REST APIs (for updating the user information).
Hmm, so we are talking about an external tool that would run on another server outside of BB, right?
