How to include query values in slack notification message

Grafana v8.4.7

My Data source is AWS CloudWatch Logs

Query “A” is simply the Log Insights query fields runId

The alert triggers when the count() is above zero

I would like my Alert message to contain the following: " :warning: ${runId} had an issue"

Currently ${runId} does not resolve. I have tried {{ $labels }} and {{ $values }} without success.

Actually I’d like to view a video tutorial that explains “Templating labels and annotations” as I feel I am missing something fundamental despite having read through Templating labels and annotations | Grafana documentation

Thanks in advance!
