Vega pie properties error converting github example to Kibana vega using a query with agg

I am getting this error

Invalid specification {...}
Make sure the specification includes at least one of the following properties: "mark", "layer", "facet", "hconcat", "vconcat", "concat", or "repeat"

I was using the pie chart from the github examples and using the kibana sample data logs. I made a range query for the last 90 days and an agg for doc count of the source and destination doc counts by terms.
I tried to convert the pie chart that works from the github examples for vega but as a newbie to vega I am missing something here, since a relative 1 for 1 swap between example and test does not work:
