Alert Notifications Syntax, Relating to Backlog and Message


I’m trying to build a simple custom alert notification (to be sent over email).
I have an alert built that watches the all messages stream for messages that match a source and contain a string. If any messages of that type get sent in, I want to be notified.
From reading the documentation, I understand that the backlog object is a list of messages. However, the ${if backlog} conditional returns false on the notification emails I’m getting back (the email ends with ).
What messages should backlog contain? Is this the wrong way to pull relevant information out of a message?
