Project automation - Send an email when the description contains string


I am trying to create a couple of rules within Project Automation that email x y z when specific text strings are matched ("urgent issue", "whatever whenever") - how would I do that?

I tried to use
{{issue.fields.description}} contains "text"
{{issue.fields.description}} contains text
description contains "text"
and a couple of other variations of the same but the log keeps showing that no conditions were matched on any of the test issues I raised - what syntax should I be using?
