we have zcu104; for test reason, we're using a simple design using PL only. We added debug logic via XDC and generated the bitstream. Board boots in JTAG mode and hw manager successfully connects and program bitstream. However hw ila is always in pre-trigger status. We routed few of the debug signals to some test point and they toggle, so we confirm that ila clock is up and running.
Any idea? Is there any procedure or script to run to enable PL only debug?

My first bet would be that the ILA clock is not working properly, but since you have already tested it, I will discard it for now. Just for confirmation, where does that clock comes from and what is its frequency? Does it come from the PS side, or is it an oscillator directly connected to the PL side?
Another cause for this issue would be that the JTAG frequency is too high. It has to be at least two times slower than the ILA clock frequency. When connecting to your ZCU104, could you please select a very low JTAG frequency, and then reprogram the board and try again?

thanks for the suggestion. To reduce the Jtag frequency didn't help but, indeed, we did a new project from scratch, same source files and it does work fine now. Not sure what could have gone wrong the first time. Anyway, thanks for the help and prompt reply.
