To debug any Rule you have created in Auth0, you can use
console.log from within your rule code. You can see
console.log output by using the Try this Rule feature, viewing the logs available with the Real-time Webtask Logs extension, or for legacy clients, using the Debug Rule CLI.
Try this Rule
In the Rules Editor, the TRY THIS RULE button lets you run a Rule in isolation with mock user and context objects. Clicking TRY will run the Rule with those two objects as input and will display any
The TRY THIS RULE feature functions outside a specific client context. When using this feature, you may run into issues if your Rule depends on data that would be provided when called from an actual application.
Real-time logs extension
The Real-time Webtask Logs extension displays all logs in real-time for all custom code in your account, which includes all
console.log output and exceptions.
Debug Rule CLI
In the Rules Editor, the DEBUG RULE button displays instructions for installing, configuring, and running the webtask CLI for debugging Rules. Paste these commands into a terminal to see the
console.log output and any unhandled exceptions that occur during Rule execution.

This debugging method works for Rules tried from the Dashboard and for those actually running during user authentication.
