sheetMetalTab operation

I am trying to add a sheetMetalTab to a custom feature but

    When I try to add "sheetMetalTab" to a custom feature, it says "Function sheetMetalTab with 3 argument(s) not found" which is weird because I have put in four arguments. I wrote in the code to match what I am seeing in a part studio that uses this feature but onshape is not happy with my version of this code which looks like this: 

    sheetMetalTab(context, "Tab 1", {
                        "tabFaces" : instantiator1,
                        "booleanUnionScope" : definition.face,
                        "booleanOffset" : 3.0 * millimeter,
                        "booleanSubtractScope" : qUnion([])


    My feature does not need a subtraction scope, so I thought that I would be able to leave it blank. Has anyone else had success with creating a custom feature using a sheet metal tab?

    Have you added the import statement for sheetMetalTab.fs ?

    import(path: "onshape/std/sheetMetalTab.fs", version:"2014.0");

    also, "Tab 1" is not a valid ID, so the feature will also fail there.
