Examples with templates

Lets assume that we have a Read Node event on a node in "common-files" (pydiods1/images/image.jpg)

  "Uuid": "124554-5154a-a6e54-az65e4a1e2",
    "Path": "pydiods1/images/image.jpg",
  "Type": "LEAF",
  "Size": "1264878"
{{.Node.Path}} -> "pydiods1/images/image.jpg" .will be replaced with the path
{{toJson .Node}} -> will change the object into a json string (see below)
{{ext .Node.Path}} -> "jpg"
{{.Env.Date}} -> "01-02-2020"
{{.Env.Time}} -> "23:42"
{{.Env.Now}}  -> "2009-11-10 23:00:00 +0000 UTC m=+0.000000001"
{{.Env.JobUUID}} -> "224454-32a1z21-2s13qdd-21ad21ad2a"
{{.Env.TaskUUID}} -> "224454-32a1z21-2s13qdd-21ad21ad2a"
