To all:

I’m running into something I don’t understand with trying to create a scripted attribute.  I’m retrieving an internal user ID number from A SQL Server database, which works fine.  I’m using that connection as the dependency for the scripted attribute so I can examine the retrieved value and massage it accordingly.  The problem is that just putting some simple debugging into the scripted attribute doesn’t seem to do anything interesting; the scripted attribute looks like this:

    <!-- Employee Number, a.k.a. Colleague ID. -->
    <resolver:AttributeDefinition xsi:type="ad:Script" id="employeeNumber">
        <resolver:Dependency ref="ODS" />
        <resolver:AttributeEncoder xsi:type="enc:SAML1String" name="urn:mace:dir:attribute-def:employeeNumber" encodeType="false" />
        <resolver:AttributeEncoder xsi:type="enc:SAML2String" name="urn:oid:2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.3" friendlyName="employeeNumber" encodeType="false" />

            logger = Java.type("org.slf4j.LoggerFactory").getLogger("net.shibboleth.idp.attribute.resolver");
            logger.debug("Here we are, doing stuff ...");


All I’m looking for is to see the logging message ("Here we are, doing stuff ...") show up in my idp-process log, but – nothing.  I’m sure this is something fundamentally silly, but since the value itself is being properly fetched from the database – at least as far as what “aacli.sh” is telling me – I’m at a loss to understand why the script isn’t logging anything.  Any and all assistance would be much appreciated.
