6.7u1 Convergence Tool Error

I'm attempting to verify the converge.json template, but running into an issue. When removing the "replication" section it will keep throwing errors. I've attempted removing it at various spots in regards to the closed brackets and I'm just not able to get removed properly. Being a new tool, documentation online is rather lacking. Anyone successfully remove this section yet?

Was able to finally get to verify the template. Took a while, but I found the syntax issue in the template.

PS: once you fill the json validate the json in https://jsonlint.com/  by copy pasting the data..
