Debugging IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM) for Mobile Mapping rules can be challenging. One of the things that makes it much easier is having regular trace statements.
In developing the other ISAM for Mobile articles, I found it much easier working out certain values using the Mapping extension utilities for tracing.

When generating trace, ensure that you have the trace statements enabled in the appliance:
In order to use the trace utilities, add the trace string to the section labelled Tracing Specification:
This is very similar to the old WebSphere ISC mechanism for trace strings.
Once enabled, trace data will be generated to the application log files section:
In your mapping rules, import the correct class, and then the trace string is available:
importClass (Packages.com.tivoli.am.fim.trustserver.sts.utilities.IDMappingExtUtils); /* * your code here */ IDMappingExtUtils.traceString("My new trace String: " + someValue);
Now when the mapping rule is executed, the trace string should appear in the trace.log.
