Use Rasa-X to generate NLU intent/entity data only - no conversations

I am trying to decide whether I should use Rasa-X or the deprecated rasa-nlu-trainer. In my case I have no bot or conversation. I am only interested in generating new training examples for the purpose of training an NLU.

It appears that Rasa-X requires a dialog system / bot and works only on the basis of either generating or annotating ‘conversations’, which does not fit my use case.

Is it possible to use Rasa-X without a story/bot? Or should I stick with the deprecated rasa-nlu-trainer which does exactly what I need?

Hi @wakiwaki, we realize that this is a bigger use case than expected, and are working to make it easier to use Rasa X only for nlu. In the mean time, you can make and annotate training data in the “Annotate new data” tab, or populate this tab for annotation by POSTing to /projects/{project_id}/logs.
