Issue embedding document fields in my alert

These are my mappings for this index:

 "mappings" : {
  "properties" : {
    "@timestamp" : {
      "type" : "date"
    },
    "@version" : {

        }
      }
    },

      }
    },

      }
    },
    "external_id" : {
      "type" : "text",
      "fields" : {
        "keyword" : {
          "type" : "keyword",
          "ignore_above" : 256
        }
      }
    },
    "host" : {
      "type" : "text",
      "fields" : {
        "keyword" : {
          "type" : "keyword",

    },

      }
    },
    "mac_address" : {
      "type" : "text",
      "fields" : {
        "keyword" : {
          "type" : "keyword",
          "ignore_above" : 256
        }
      }
    },
    "message" : {
      "type" : "text",
      "fields" : {
        "keyword" : {
          "type" : "keyword",
          "ignore_above" : 256
        }
      }
    },
    "severity" : {
      "type" : "text",
      "fields" : {
        "keyword" : {
          "type" : "keyword",
          "ignore_above" : 256

      }
    },
    "tags" : {
      "type" : "text",
      "fields" : {

          "type" : "keyword",
          "ignore_above" : 256
        }
      }
    },
    "type" : {
      "type" : "text",
      "fields" : {
        "keyword" : {
          "type" : "keyword",
          "ignore_above" : 256
        }
      }
    },
    "url" : {
      "type" : "text",
      "fields" : {
        "keyword" : {
          "type" : "keyword",
          "ignore_above" : 256
        }
      }
    }
  }
},

Now I try to include some fields on my alert to make it more informative, but I can’t get it to work. Can someone take a look at my syntax and verify or tell me what is wrong with what I am doing…

- Description: There are  {{ctx.results.hits.0.total.value}} high profile incidents over the last 20 minutes.

[ {{#ctx.results.0.hits.hits}}{{_source.title}} {{_source.url}}{{/ctx.results.0.hits.hits}} ]

right now I still get blank in my alert:

- Description: There are   high profile incidents over the last 20 minutes.

Hello @dev01, can you please try to follow the following guide: Kibana email alert - extracting field results

I saw this guide actually prior to posting here, but will try to follow again.

Thank you so much!!! this is a lifesaver guide… wish it was part of official opendistro documentation… would save me hours of waste…

Great guide!
