Template Specs Not Working as It Shows Error 'Template'

Visitor

Hi Community,

 

I have not been able to use Azure Template Specs for 2 days already, whenever I tried to deploy the template specs it gives me the following error:

ERROR: 'template'

 

I believe it is an issue from Azure, even if I follow the following quick start guide, still getting the same error:
Create and deploy template spec - Azure Resource Manager | Microsoft Docs

note:
If deploy it using portal, it works.

If deploy the template file without using template specs, it works.

Only fails if deploy using template specs with the resource id, for example: 
az deployment group create --resource-group storageRG --template-spec $id

 

Please help if you have any insight on this issue, thanks.
