Windows 11 >> Add a layout to an image

I am following this guide to modify the Layout in Windows 11.
And json file looks like the following:

{ "primaryOEMPins": [   
     { "packagedAppId": "Microsoft.Windows.Photos_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App"},  
     { "desktopAppId": "Microsoft.Windows.Explorer" },   
     { "packagedAppId": "Microsoft.WindowsStore_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App"}   
   "secondaryOEMPins": [   
     { "packagedAppId": "windows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewy!"},   
     { "packagedAppId":"Microsoft.WindowsCalculator_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App"}   
   "firstRunOEMPins": [   
     { "packagedAppId":"Microsoft.WindowsNotepad_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App"}   

Once image is deployed and desktop is prepared, default start layout still available (ToDo, Xbox, Spotify, Facebook etc. etc.)
What might I am doing wrong?

    That's the OEM process, which can only add items (and a very small number of them). The IT pro process is now documented separately. See for more details, links, etc.
