Failed Logons To Splunk

Is there a way to search by failed logons to Splunk?

I'd like to create an alert if a user attempts to logon but is denied either because an account doesn't exist, wrong password, etc.

Has anyone else tried this?

Got it

index=_audit action=failure

or

index=_audit action=failure | stats count by _time,user,action

Thank you, I used this to troubleshoot a user that said he couldn't login
