Updates - BB Learn LMS

To best meet clients needs and feedback, our WAR File/Building Block is updated consistently!  For the best experience, your IntelliBoard WAR File/Building Block will need to be maintained.  A running stream of updates can be found below.

NOTE: When the WAR File/Building Block needs to be updated, the existing block must be uninstalled before the new block is installed.

NOTE: IntelliBoard added Feature to WAR File/Building Block to override possible deadlocks which impacts the SAAS updates. Therefore, if you are on a SAAS environment, or you are scheduling block updates, then two scheduled tasks must be created: 1 - uninstall existing version and 2 - install updated version.

The most up to date block can be found on here.  Navigate to Blackboard Learn WAR File/Building Block

Directions to install the plugin maybe found here.

WAR File/Building Block Version:

  • BBL 3400+: 1.3.32 (October 2020)
  • BBL 3300: 1.3.321 (October 2020)

NOTE: Reports and monitor filters are now Cached to store set filters for later use. Cache will be cleared with each processing.
