You can use the EXEC CICS DUMP TRANSACTION TASK command within some sort of error routine to produce a transaction dump which contains all of the areas related to the current transaction. Don't forget that it will only produce trace entries for the task if tracing is active in the region. You can go further and take a Snap dump of the whole region via EXEC CICS PERFORM DUMP, but you should not have to resort to this.
