KV is a set of key value pairs, where each key and value is a string. If a KV happens to contain numbers or bools then these are string representations of the numeric or boolean value.

Here is an example of a KV, the annotations of an alert:

summary: 'A summary of the alert'
description: 'A description of the alert'

In addition to iterating over each key value pair, you can sort the pairs, remove keys, and iterate over just the keys or the values.

SortedPairsSorts{{ .Annotations.SortedPairs }}
RemoveReturns a copy of the KV with the keys removed[]string{{ .Annotations.Remove "summary" }}
NamesA list of the names{{ .Names }}
ValuesA list of the values{{ .Values }}


Time is from the Go time package. You can print a time in a number of different formats. For example, to print the time that an alert fired in the format Monday, 1st January 2022 at 10:00AM you would write the following template:

{{ .StartsAt.Format "Monday, 2 January 2006 at 3:04PM" }}

You can find a reference for Go’s time format here.
