Hey,

please use proper formatting in your messages. This is pretty hard to read.

When you compare your JSON with the one mentioned in the documentation, you will notice, that yours is missing a field called template, which defines the indices this template should be assigned to. That's what is meant with the failed validation.

"example.com" : {
"order" : 0,
"version" : 50001,
