RTC - Problems debugging script based attribute customization


Sian O'Briain (35921) | asked Aug 31 '18, 5:06 a.m.
Hi I have a couple of attribute customizations - all working fine but for some reason I can't see anythingin the web console when I use console.log
I know console.log is working as I do get a single message when I reload the page if I put the console.log just after the first line in the script before the function is executed. But when I modify the relevant attribute and save the workitem I can't use the step feature in the browser or the console.log. I only seem to be able to step through after a page reload. Any help? I have looked at https://jazz.net/forum/questions/225348/how-to-get-calculated-attribute-value-script-to-run-in-browser-for-debugging but not entirely sure if this is the same behaviour.

Tried in Firefox and Chrome. One attribute has dependency other does not

dojo.provide("com.example.ValueProviderReturnToZero");


(function() {
    var doDebug = true;
    dojo.declare("com.example.ValueProviderReturnToZero", null, {

        getValue: function(attribute, workItem, configuration) {
debug("hello");
return 0;

    function debug(display){    
    if(doDebug){
        console.log(display);
    }
    }

        }
    });
})();

okay I have it working sort of now, it does need the dependent attribute as was mentioned in the other thread. So since my script is running but I can't capture it on the client side, does this mean it is actually running server side? If so is there any way to show a warning similar to the ones displayed with server side customization?
